Postpartum Therapy in Las Vegas & Summerlin

Finding Strength in Motherhood

Get Started

Figuring out how to be a “good mom” can be daunting and overwhelming. But in my years of motherhood and my years as a therapist, here’s what I’ve learned: It starts with us.

The healthier WE are, the healthier THEY can be. The single best thing we can do to benefit our children is to work on ourselves.

Navigating the challenges, anxieties, and fears of motherhood can sometimes feel like too much. And that’s where therapy can come in.

Postpartum therapy allows you to lay it all out on the table and work through the challenges with the help of someone not only with therapy expertise but motherhood experience as well!

It doesn’t matter how slow you go, as long as you don’t stop.

Why should you get therapy for postpartum depression and challenges?

You deserve to feel empowered and at peace in motherhood, and that isn’t always easy.

After giving birth to my firstborn, I felt a lot of overwhelm. Nursing was difficult for me and I felt panic every time she woke for a night feeding, which made me feel even more overwhelmed and inadequate. I felt that I was not only failing as a mom, but I was failing because I couldn’t shake these thoughts and my experience with Postpartum Depression.

I’ve personally experienced the pain and fear of motherhood and know just how powerful therapy and counseling can be!

Postpartum therapy can help you:

  • Manage overwhelm and pressure
  • Increase self-awareness
  • Set healthy boundaries
  • Improve body image, self-worth, self-talk & self-care
  • Learn to build your “mom tribe” and more!

We owe it to ourselves as mothers to find the peace and joy that can, and should, come from motherhood!

It is only in our darkest hours that we may discover the true strength of the brilliant light within ourselves that can never, ever, be dimmed.

How postpartum therapy works

Therapy is awesome. It’s so empowering! You get to come in, lay it all out on the table, process it, and together, we’ll figure out your game plan.

We believe that self-awareness is the key to unlocking emotional and behavioral change. It’s a process that can be incredibly rewarding and, at times, surprisingly fun. We’ll shed some tears and have some laughs and along the way, and when you leave you’ll feel stronger and more at peace.

Therapy is a safe haven where you can feel heard, understood, and validated. We’ll dive into your experiences and feelings and help you navigate your way out of it.

Our goal is to provide an environment where we can openly process your thoughts, feelings, emotions, and behaviors without fear of judgment, and you can leave feeling empowered, confident, and free.

Chrissy lawler therapist in las vegas

Hi, I’m Christine Lawler.

I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and I’ve been practicing therapy for almost 13 years. I have an amazing husband who I’ve been married to for 12 years, and we’ve got four darling little girls.

I’m a big believer that therapist fit is really important. Too many people give up on counseling in general because they had a poor fit with a therapist and decided counseling didn’t work. Counseling DOES work, but the therapist/client match-up is important. You want to work with someone whose personality you can jive with, and you need to believe that your therapist can actually help you. So, I’m going to tell you a little bit about myself and what sets me apart, and you can decide if I sound like the right fit for you:

I graduated from Brigham Young University, the #1 Marriage and Family Therapy program in the country. I’m not saying this to brag, only to confidently report that my education was top notch. We were constantly taught how important it is to be a fantastic therapist, because unfortunately, unskilled therapists can do more harm than good and often clients have no way of discerning. I was also taught that having a good foundational background is important, but what I do after graduation to hone my skills is what will set me apart. Because of this, I have thrown myself into reading and taking continuing education courses from the leaders in the field. I’m a critical consumer of information and I make sure that everything I do is grounded in theory.

Hi, I’m Leslie Frederick.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have long had a passion for helping and serving others.

I began my career as a social worker for a local hospice.  I found great purpose in helping families navigate the unpredictable twists and turns that undoubtedly come along with the end of life for their loved ones.  After many years in hospice, I transitioned to a medical social work position in a hospital, which then led me to a Clinical Social Work Intern position in an inpatient psych hospital.  During this time, I enjoyed working with a range of individuals and families.  The vast array of cases I encountered in the hospital allowed me to gain the experience and skills needed to serve a multitude of clients.  I enjoy working with clients of all ages and believe in meeting a client where they are at in order to tailor treatment to meet their individualized needs and work towards their specific goals.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work from Northern Arizona University and a Masters in Social Work from UNLV. I am originally from Northwest Indiana and have lived in Las Vegas for over ten years with my husband and our three children. We love living out west and enjoy spending time traveling and exploring our neighboring states.
