Our goal is to support birth parents and their families through their journeys in every way we can. We truly understand how challenging seeking support let alone making a commitment to therapy can be during difficult times. We offer individual therapy in office, via video or in your home (surrounding the beacon and Poughkeepsie area), as well as a group therapy option.

We are in network with Blue Cross Blue Shield and Fidelis insurance plans. For other insurance plans,  we will happily provide you with the information needed to submit to your insurance plan for potential reimbursement as an out of network provider.



Our first appointment will be an initial assessment.This  is a 60 minute session that focuses on reasons for seeking therapy, symptoms, history and presenting problems. It is also a time to for you to learn more about the therapy process, set  treatment goals, and address any additional questions or concerns about the therapeutic process.



Following the initial assessment, continued sessions will be 50 minutes in length and will continue to work on your treatment goals to reduce symptoms and promote overall wellness and happiness.



We will be offering a weekly postpartum adjustment group on Sundays at 10am. This is a therapeutic group facilitated by Melodie Weldon, LMHC with the goal of supporting birth parents experiencing a range of mood disruption during the postpartum period (birth to a year). Babies are welcome with caregivers.
