Postpartum depression is the most common complication from pregnancy. 1 in 7 women experience postpartum depression after giving birth, and as many as 1 in 5 women experience perinatal depression during pregnancy, the postpartum period, or both. Without treatment, postpartum depression symptoms can last for years. But talking to someone can help. In fact, whether your symptoms are mild or severe, postpartum depression is a condition that can be effectively treated with therapy.
It can be hard to know if postpartum depression therapy is right for you, or where to start. You may not know whether you’re experiencing symptoms of postpartum depression or something else — like baby blues, postpartum anxiety, or other related conditions.
Depression symptoms can also begin during pregnancy, but it can be easy to miss the signs because stress, lack of sleep, and hormonal shifts are so common for all pregnant women and new mothers. If your symptoms are impacting your quality of life, talking to a therapist specializing in postpartum depression treatment can help you sort through what you’re feeling and build important skills to navigate early motherhood.

I have never felt super comfortable in therapy, but my therapist at Two Chairs has made me look forward to my sessions for the first time.
My Two Chairs experience has been transformative. I have started to feel a colossal shift in my mental health in just a few months of doing EMDR teletherapy and feel lucky to have it work with my schedule and be covered by my insurance.
I am receiving quality care from a great Two Chairs therapist who enjoys her work and has made so much of an effort to understand me.
If you have more questions, our Care Coordination Team would love to help.
Two Chairs provides hybrid care, which allows for a combination of virtual and in-person sessions for clients who are located near one of our clinics in the Bay Area, Los Angeles, Seattle, and Miami and would like the option to connect with their therapist in person. With hybrid care, our goal is to help each Two Chairs client find the right therapist and the right setting for therapy — whether that’s from the comfort of your home, or in one of our beautiful clinics.

Research shows that the therapeutic alliance between you and your therapist is the best predictor of successful treatment outcome. Psychologists define the therapeutic alliance as the strength of the therapist-client relationship and how aligned you are on goals. Studies show that individuals with a strong therapeutic alliance with their therapist are more productive at work, have more fulfilled relationships, can cope more effectively with daily stressors, and engage in less risky behaviors.
Currently, Two Chairs offers psychotherapy services to those over the age of 18. While we don’t currently offer psychiatric or adolescent services, our therapists can help work with outside providers for your care.
Therapy is a collaborative process based on a trusting relationship between you and your therapist. This strong therapeutic alliance allows you to talk freely and openly in a supportive, unbiased, and non-judgmental environment. Together, over a series of appointments, you and your therapist will challenge current patterns that keep you feeling stuck as well as identify and work towards fulfilling goals.
