About Sarah Moore, LPC

In the beginning, I’ll assess what level of care you need and figure out practical ways to make parenting easier. I can help you learn to find adequate childcare, prepare for going back to work, and connect with any specialists you need. From there we can get into some deeper work, exploring past trauma and healing the emotional wounds that hold you back as a parent.

The good news about postpartum therapy is that it’s often a fairly short-term commitment. Although there’s no exact timetable for when postpartum issues resolve, most of my clients do not need long-term treatment. In fact, many of them say they feel relieved after we get one session out of the way and form a plan for managing their symptoms.

I’ve trained with both Postpartum Support International (PSI) and Postpartum Support Virginia (PSVa), for whom I am a preferred provider. I incorporate PSVa’s Path to Wellness plan into my practice. The Path to Wellness is a holistic approach to postpartum therapy that looks at how motherhood impacts every area of your life, from your sleep patterns to your eating habits to your relationships and social support network.

I also draw from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which can give you useful problem-solving skills and help you overcome beliefs that negatively affect your parenting. For instance, maybe you’ve always believed that you should be self-reliant and do everything yourself. CBT can help you figure out where this belief came from and how to adjust it so that it doesn’t make you feel down about yourself.

I’ve helped numerous women weather the challenges of life after pregnancy. In addition to my training with PSI and PSV, I’ve worked as a support group co-leader in four different hospitals. I am also a mother myself, so I know firsthand the challenges that mothers face. I’m confident that I can help you adjust to your new life and deepen your connection with your little one.
