I wanted to share this wonderful new service in Pittsburgh for helping those who have experienced pregnancy or infant loss. Support groups can be extremely helpful to mothers and families trying to process and navigate these types of loss. It is my belief that these groups are a great compliment to therapy. Where therapy can help facilitate the individual grief process, support groups can offer a space to relate to others and help to lessen the isolation of the experience.
The Three Rivers Mothers Milk Bank is located at:

I was recently contacted about being a therapist resource for an online smoking cessation support group.
If you, or someone you know, are looking for an online community to support your desire to quit, please check them out:
I recently became a participating therapist for Open Path Collective, a non-profit company helping people access affordable yet still high quality counseling services.
My specialty populations include working with college students and new moms, and managing money during those particular life transitions is a difficult task!
My intention to join this community of therapists is to break down the barrier of financial stress associated with pursuing self-care and allow these individuals to participate in therapy.
If you do not have insurance at this time and cannot afford fee for service out of pocket, this may be a viable option for you to get the help you are looking for.
