Welcome to Harris Counseling, LLC where services are provided by Andrea Harris, MA, LPC. I have a special interest and training in reproductive and maternal mental health concerns. Individual counseling is available for adults (ages 18 & above) who are struggling with:

  • Infertility

  • Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss

  • Perinatal/Postpartum Anxiety

  • Perinatal/Postpartum Depression

My goal as a counselor is to provide a non-judgmental environment where you can feel safe exploring the challenges that brought you to counseling. My approach seeks to empower you by helping you to better understand your struggles, recognize your  strengths and find ways to help life feel more manageable. I utilize an eclectic approach, which often includes cognitive behavioral techniques,  to tailor services to your individual goals.  

INFERTILITY

It can be overwhelming and exhausting when you are experiencing difficulty in conceiving or maintaining a pregnancy.  You may feel like you are on a roller coaster as you go from feeling hopeful to devastated depending on the result of a test, cycle, or treatment.  You may feel stressed regarding the uncertainty of your future.  

 Counseling may be helpful if you are:  

  • struggling with feeling down, anxious or worried

  • exploring options related to treatment or family building

  • seeking support during a treatment or after a failed treatment

  • experiencing difficulty in relationships with loved ones

MISCARRIAGE & PREGNANCY LOSS

The loss of a pregnancy, whether you are newly pregnant or further along, can be devastating. You may feel overwhelmed by your loss and have difficulty focusing on anything else. You may feel angry that life has not gone as it was supposed to. You may feel hurt by the reaction to your loss from family or friends. 

Counseling may be helpful if you are struggling following a:

  • chemical pregnancy

  • blighted ovum

  • ectopic pregnancy

  • missed miscarriage

  • recurrent pregnancy loss

PERINATAL & POSTPARTUM

Pregnancy and the arrival of your baby will likely bring both expected and unexpected changes.  Some women and men may develop significant symptoms of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs) during pregnancy or within the first year after childbirth. These symptoms differ from the "baby blues" and can significantly interfere with your ability to enjoy life or function well. 

You may wish to consider counseling if you are: 

  • feeling down or guilty

  • feeling anxious or frequently worried

  • feeling angry or irritable

  • having difficulty adjusting to pregnancy or motherhood

  • struggling with thoughts that are concerning to you
