holistic maternal mental health

We help mothers overcome anxiety, postpartum and maternal mental health challenges so they can feel more calm, confident and connected with their children.



We believe in nurturing mothers to birth a new culture. When mothers thrive, their children thrive too.



So we start here, with you.


Your Mental Health Matters

Society tends to focus care on the baby without ensuring the health of the mama. Willow Tree Therapy believes that the two go hand in hand as one. Your experience of conception, pregnancy and birth matters. Your postpartum well-being impacts your relationship with baby. We support you in restoring your emotional health because even though you may feel forgotten, you are so important in the most intimate interchange that exists. When you are healthy, so is your baby.


Women come to us feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, ashamed and afraid.  Using a combination of psychotherapy, mindfulness and healthy lifestyle, we help mothers shift from feeling anxious, stressed and powerless to feeling healthy, worthy and confident. They experience a greater sense of wellness that supports healthy attachment and helps their baby thrive.

Our job is not to deny the story, but to defy the ending—to rise strong, recognize our story, and rumble with the truth until we get to a place where we think, Yes. This is what happened. This is my truth. And I will choose how the story ends.

I’m Gillian

I’m an integrative psychotherapist who helps women who are experiencing postpartum anxiety or maternal mental health challenges have a healthy, empowered motherhood journey so they can be their most authentic, present self for their children. I’m also a mother.


In both psychotherapy sessions and the programs I offer, I use a combination of evidence-based approaches including Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Emotion-Focused Family Therapy (EFFT) and Internal Family Systems therapy (IFS). I also rely on my training in holistic nutrition and as a perinatal personal fitness trainer to inform my integrative approach.

The beliefs you hold about yourself and the world, your emotions, your memories, and your habits all can influence mental and physical health. These connections between what is going on in your mind and heart, and what is happening in your body, form the foundation of health.
