  • Postpartum Anxiety (PPA): Intense worry, racing thoughts, and physical symptoms of anxiety that can interfere with daily life.

  • Postpartum OCD (PPOCD): Intrusive thoughts, obsessions, and compulsions that can cause distress and interfere with daily activities.

  • Postpartum PTSD (PPTSD): Recurrent flashbacks, nightmares, and hyperarousal linked to a traumatic childbirth experience.

  • Postpartum Psychosis (PPP): A rare but serious condition characterized by delusions, hallucinations, and disorganized thinking.

Our Programs

At Innerspace Counseling, our dedicated therapists and psychiatrists at are committed to providing our patients with the support and tools they need to not only overcome their mental health concerns, but to also manage them better once the program is complete. Instead of offering individual therapy once a week as is most common with traditional therapy, to help you in the best possible way, we’ve created two unique programs: our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). Each program is designed to focus on the individual needs of each patient, and choosing the program that is right for you will depend on the amount of care necessary to help you heal. Unlike traditional therapy, our programs at Innerspace Counseling meet at least three days a week, depending on the program in which you are enrolled.

Partial Hospitalization Program

For those navigating the unique challenges of pregnancy and postpartum, our Perinatal Wellness Program (PWP) offers a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), with a specialized avenue of care. Ideal for gestational parents grappling with a range of mental health issues, such as postpartum depression, postpartum anxiety, postpartum PTSD, postpartum OCD, postpartum ADHD, postpartum psychosis, and more. This program also serves as a bridge for those who've recently transitioned from a hospital setting or seek a higher level of supportive therapy.

In this comprehensive program, you'll engage Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., in a blend of individual counseling, group therapy, family sessions, and medication management. Co-occurring substance use treatment is also available if needed. After completing the PHP, most patients transition to our less-intensive IOP, equipped with invaluable tools to manage and improve your mental health throughout your perinatal journey.

Intensive Outpatient Program

Our Perinatal Wellness Program (PWP) can also be coupled with our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) as the perfect next step for those transitioning from a PHP or for gestational parents seeking more in-depth care than traditional therapy. In this tailored program, you'll engage with our specialized therapists and psychiatrists three times a week, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. With a flexible Monday-to-Friday schedule, you can choose the days that align best with your needs. Duration is typically between eight to 12 weeks, customized to your individual progress and well-being through your perinatal journey.
