Navigating the mental health system can be overwhelming. Finding a therapist trained in the reproductive period that takes your insurance, is affordable, accessible and available is next to impossible. PS-WA is dedicated to reducing barriers people face in accessing high quality mental health care. Our new therapy program is designed to provide the care you need, where you want it: in your home, in the community, online, or in the office.
Due to COVID-19 we are only offering online services at the moment. We look forward to being able to expand our services in time. We have 5 highly skilled therapists and interns with both lived and professional experience serving childbearing families.
Online therapy for common experiences including:
We treat a variety of common concerns including infertility, perinatal loss, birth trauma, postpartum adjustment issues such as depression, anxiety, and panic, breast/chestfeeding stress/trauma, relationship concerns since baby, and unwanted feelings such as anger, rage, irritability.
To access any of our programs please call our Warm Line or request a call back.

Jessica Duty, LMFTA
I support birthing people and their families nurture the capacity for self reflection, insight,
discernment and change. Beyond the initial reason for engaging in therapy, I often work with
people and their loved ones to explore the underlying patterns in behaviors, relationships and
overall life engagement that hinder growth, progress and satisfaction.
