Perinatal Mental Health Counseling
Perinatal Mental Health Counseling is treatment that is specified to address challenges from conception to the first year after birth for mothers and their partners. Counseling services are based on each mother and partner’s reason for seeking treatment. Your counselor will work diligently to establish trust and create a safe therapeutic environment in which mommies and their loved ones will reach their therapeutic goals of symptom relief, symptom management, and well-being.

Perinatal Mental Health Trained Counselor
Hi, I'm Peta Williams, Perinatal Mental Health Trained Counselor
Instead of unintentionally boring you with all my credentials and training, I wanted to switch things up a bit and be transparent. First and foremost, I identify as a woman of color, a mother, and wife. I acquired licensure to counsel in the state of Florida and through personal experiences with pregnancy, childbirth, and miscarriage was steered in the direction of becoming a Perinatal Mental Health Trained Counselor.
Benefits of Perinatal Counseling and Doula Support
Mothers and their partners will receive counseling services by a Perinatal Mental Health Trained Counselor who specializes in the treatment of symptoms and disorders resulting from attempts at conception, pregnancy ,miscarriages, birth, and after birth. Counselors without this certification will lack the knowledge and skills for successful treatment.
Early treatment of Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders is the most effective preventive measure against self-harm, child abuse and neglect, family dysfunction, and disruption of healthy brain development for babies.
Postpartum doula support reduces risk of developing perinatal mood disorders, improves mother and partner’s self-confidence as new parents or parents of multiples, and increases opportunities for sleep or rest.
