At Towler Counseling, we recognize that women can face unique mental health struggles. If you are feeling lost, alone or struggling with life choices it is time to seek help. We are passionate about working with women facing these issues and empowering them to process and overcome their struggles. We are here to let you know that you are not alone. In the past few years, many women are now vocal about their mental health struggles. With all of the recent events, women need women therapists who understand and can align with what they are going through. Do not think you are alone.
We offer the different types of therapy below:
Prenatal therapy - We offer prenatal introduction sessions to help moms-to-be prepare for their baby and focus on self-care throughout pregnancy and newborns. During pregnancy, our therapists understand the need to be present, but other thoughts may arise as well. In these sessions, we offer the mother step-by-step recommendations to be prepared for postpartum life and education on the signs of prenatal and postpartum anxiety and depression and tools to overcome them. With Prenatal therapy, you will work with our trained therapists who are moms themselves and understand the challenges and joys you are going through. Prenatal therapy is a great benefit to help you with the next stage in your parenthood.
Postpartum depression/anxiety therapy - Our therapists are trained in using cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help new mothers struggling with postpartum depression and anxiety. While most women experience intense emotions or depression (often referred to as “baby blues”) for about 1-3 weeks after delivery, some women experience more persistent and severe feelings of depression. What if these elevated emotions persist for a longer period of time? In that case, you are probably experiencing postpartum depression, which typically emerges over the first 2-3 months after childbirth but may occur at any point up to 18 months after delivery. Talking to a licensed counselor can give you the tools to help you through this period. Postpartum depression or anxiety can be extremely challenging, and our therapists understand this. There are some therapists on our team who have experienced postpartum and have the ability to relate to you. Our therapists help moms in the Atlanta and Sandy Springs area. We offer online or face to face. Children and babies are welcome if you choose to come in person.
Therapy for mothers - Often, moms need extra support and struggle with learning to care for themselves while caring for their children. As therapists, we help moms, but we go one step further and meet you where you are. As a mom, you'll face challenges, but you'll also have a lot of fun. In the Atlanta area, we help moms understand who they are and who they are as mothers. In therapy, we can help you develop coping skills to deal with depression, anxiety, and the daily stress of life, as well as work on taking care of yourself and dealing with overwhelming feelings.
Pregnancy loss therapy - Because it was traditionally a taboo topic, many women feel unable to speak about their experiences with pregnancy loss. Here at Towler Counseling we believe in talking about the loss to help you move through the stages of grief. We understand that losing a pregnancy can be one of the most tragic loss of your life. We believe we can help you though this loss. Pregnancy loss can be traumatic, lonely, and scary for many women. However, discussing your grief with a counselor can be an incredible healing experience. In therapy, we can help you healthily process your loss. It may feel impossible but you can with help grieve.
Depression and Anxiety therapy for women: We work with you on where you are and assist you in understanding your depression and anxiety triggers. Depression is a common and serious illness. A CDC study shows that about 1 in 10 women in the United States reported symptoms that suggest they experienced an episode of major depression in the last year. Our therapists uses CBT, DBT or person centered to work with women clients who are having depression or anxiety issues. We use a variety of techniques to aid patients in reducing symptoms and improving functioning. Therapists employing CBT may encourage patients to re-evaluate their thinking patterns and assumptions in order to identify unhelpful patterns (often termed “distortions”) in thoughts, such as overgeneralizing bad outcomes, negative thinking that diminishes positive thinking, and always expecting catastrophic outcomes, to more balanced and effective thinking patterns. These are intended to help the person reconceptualize their understanding of traumatic experiences, as well as their understanding of themselves and their ability to cope. We will help through this process, tailoring each step to your unique needs and circumstances.
