reproductive mental health
Medicine and mental health often neglect to take the uniqueness of biological sex in the consideration of symptoms and tools for healing. Well Psychotherapy acknowledges the need for expert care tailored to the unique biology and psychology of women, specifically around reproductive health.
This approach includes sensitivity for existing mental health conditions, as well as informed curiosity for new presenting challenges related to the reproductive life cycle of women: menses, fertility, pregnancy, pregnancy loss, postpartum, and menopause. Mental health - mood and anxiety as well as trauma-related disorders - uniquely interact with these life experiences, and are often stigmatized based on traditional ideas of motherhood and womanhood.
Well Psychotherapy takes care to provide a compassionate context for wholehearted, woman-centered mental health and trauma healing.
