Welcome to the Mommy Blues website
I can help….
As a therapist, I have have helped countless mothers and fathers (new and experienced) through numerous postpartum, post-adoption, and parenting crises. I am a certified postpartum counselor and parenting coach, and have been a licensed clinical psychologist (1994), professional clinical counselor (2001), and social worker in elementary, middle and high school in the USA. I have counseled families through: miscarriage, fertility treatment, adoption, egg and sperm donor conception, parenting a child with special needs, infant and child loss, divorce, step-parenting, infidelity, remarriage, grief, illness, and behavior and developmental problems .
As a mother and step-mom, I have faced hundreds of day-to-day parenting decisions and challenges! I have also faced significant parenting crises. I have experienced pregnancy, miscarriage, infertility, twins, special education needs, divorce, coparenting, and blending a family.

“Through the blur, I wondered if I was alone or if other parents felt the same way I did – that everything involving our children was painful in some way. The emotions, whether they were joy, sorrow, love or pride, were so deep and sharp that in the end they left you raw, exposed and yes, in pain. The human heart was not designed to beat outside the human body and yet, each child represented just that – a parent’s heart bared, beating forever outside its chest.” ― Debra Ginsberg
