Postpartum Depression Counseling in Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor, CO

Foundations Counseling in Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor offers postpartum depression counseling to help women cope with the unique issues they face after childbirth. Postpartum depression, in the form of mild to major depression, has symptoms that are easy to miss. Hormonal changes during and after pregnancy are normal, and symptoms like fatigue and changes in appetite may be attributed to the lifestyle adaptations that come with caring for a new baby. These factors, and others, can all impact a new mother’s overall mental well-being.

Our counselors are familiar with the unique challenges that women face during this joyous, and also stressful, time in their lives. They can help you address these issues in a confidential and understanding environment.

Some women fear that mental struggles are an indication of their failure as a mother, and they may even fear that their baby will be taken away from them. Many women experience negative social and cultural stigmas associated with their distress. A caring therapist can help you work toward a state of mental health so that you can happily enjoy your growing family.

What you can expect with Postpartum Depression Counseling

Foundations Counseling offers postpartum depression counseling in Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor. Our therapists know that even though postpartum depression affects many women, each person’s experience will be vastly different. Regardless of what you’re experiencing, we can help you.

Your therapist will help you normalize your feelings, and will work with you to discover any underlying issues that may be contributing to your postpartum depression. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a useful tool that can help you reprogram unwanted habits of thinking, feeling, and doing. The clear and structured steps used in CBT can help you address a variety of different emotional challenges.

When to Ask for Help

It’s important to seek help if your depression symptoms last for more than two weeks or if they are particularly severe. Further, if you experience one or more of the following symptoms, you should strongly consider speaking to a counselor:

  • Feelings of hopelessness
  • Difficulty caring for yourself or your baby
  • Overwhelming feelings of negativity, including thoughts about harming yourself or the infant
  • Difficulty falling asleep and/or staying asleep
  • Intense fatigue
  • Anxiety and/or panic

Motherhood brings joy, love, and complexity into your life. Despite all of the happiness it can also be a very trying time, and it’s perfectly normal to have difficulty adjusting to your new role. Your counselor will help you unravel your feelings so that you can make peace with your newfound motherhood. According to the American Psychiatric Association, symptoms of postpartum depression should manifest within the first four weeks following childbirth. However, in reality, postpartum depression commonly occurs any time within the first year after childbirth.

Keaton has been great! I feel real value with his counseling and guidance. I am disappointed that our Flex card will not work at your office especially since you do not take insurance.

My counselor was awesome! I can directly credit her for the improvement of my life. Her direction was always non-judgmental but also guiding and let you come to your own conclusions. The building it is in has an awesome tree and live plants growing in it which I appreciated. The chocolate while waiting was also a plus.
