Hello and Welcome! I'm Sarah Courech, a licensed mental health counselor, maternal mental health advocate, and a mom myself.
I attended Rollins College where I completed my undergraduate degree in psychology and Masters Degree in Mental Health Counseling. I have 15 years of experience working in a variety of different behavioral healthcare settings. In addition to being a licensed mental health counselor, I also have the ability to supervise and train registered mental health interns by serving as a qualified clinical supervisor.
Recognizing Orlando's increased need for mental health practitioners who provide support through pregnancy and the postpartum period, I obtained my certification in perinatal mental health. I am also certified in EMDR therapy (Eye-Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing) which is one of the most effective treatments for addressing chronic anxiety, birth trauma, PTSD, and a whole host of other issues.
I specialize in treating the following perinatal mood and anxiety disorders:
Depression and Anxiety in Pregnancy
Postpartum Anxiety and Panic Disorder
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) in pregnancy or postpartum
I also provide services to address:
Adjustment to Motherhood
Difficulty with Role Transitions after Baby
Perinatal Grief and Loss
While I have specialized training in issues surrounding Maternal Mental Health, I provide a safe and healing space where anyone who is struggling can come to get help.
In the Community:
I proudly serve as a board member on the Tough Tots fund, a local non profit who provides support, comfort and basic financial assistance to pediatric patients, their caregivers, and their medical professionals. I hold active memberships with: Central Florida Postpartum Alliance, Postpartum Support International, American Counseling Associations, and Mental Health Association of Central Florida.
If you find yourself struggling to adjust to your pregnancy, feel lost in the postpartum period, or are in the throws of new motherhood, please know you are not alone and with treatment, you will feel better. You do not have to continue to feel the way you do, and talking with a perinatal mental health trained therapist can help. please contact me for a free consultation. My office is physically in Winter Park, Florida. I am also licensed to provide online counseling services (teletherapy) to anyone who resides in the state of Florida.
Your maternal mental health matters.
