Therapy for the postpartum mom who feels like she's losing her mind

Asking for help doesn't mean you're weak, it means you want to remain strong!

You feel exhausted, irritable, and tired. It may feel like you are riding an emotional rollercoaster! You may have trouble bonding with your baby. You feel lost, confused, and sad. At times, you may have scary thoughts and images about your child. You feel scared to say, sometimes it doesn’t feel so good to be a parent. And it sucks to feel that way. You feel guilty and ashamed for having those thoughts and feelings. I would like you to know that you are not alone. You don’t deserve to suffer in silence.

My own experience becoming a parent led me to find my passion in parental mental health. My purpose is to help you feel like yourself again. Being with someone who cares, and listens, that itself is healing. When you come to therapy, you get to be vulnerable, explore your fears, difficult feelings, and thoughts. I understand one single approach doesn’t fit everyone that is why during our collaborative therapy sessions, I’ll help you build the skills and insight you need in order to feel like yourself again and feel emotionally balanced while adjusting to your new life.

I offer In-person/walk and talk therapy in San Diego, CA and online therapy only for California residents.

Feel free to email to or call me at 619-333-0896 to book your 15-minute free consultation.

About the FUN 'me'!

My name is Eszter Kalman, I'm originally from Hungary, previously I lived in Spain and Italy before moving to San Diego, California.

I enjoy exploring the parks and beaches of this beautiful city. When I'm not here, I like to explore the World with my family.

You can also ask me anything about Gordon Ramsay, as I'm his #1 fan. If I'm not watching his shows or Shark Tank, I listen to audiobooks and podcasts.

I need my hot latte in the morning before anything to start my day, and when my schedule allows (or better say when I choose to prioritize myself) I practice yoga or I go for a run to calm and clear my mind.

About the THERAPIST 'me'!

I'm not your typical Licensed therapist, I'm real, approachable and transparent.

I'm a mom of two, who struggled with postpartum depression and anxiety. I know, motherhood can be a very lonely experience, postpartum mental illness makes you feel guilty, and you may wonder what's wrong with YOU. Nothing at all! I'm the living proof that with the right help, you will be well.

My personal experience led me to go back to school in order to help other parents that are struggling right now. I received my degree from SDSU in Master of Social Work.

I don't think therapy should be some clinical, sterile experience. That sounds freakin' horrible.

I've been a proud volunteer for Postpartum Support International and Postpartum Health Alliance of San Diego for many years.

I also have experience working with people that struggled with past trauma (don't we all) and severe mental illness, depression, anxiety, and grief and loss.

I'm EMDR trained and obtained Perinatal Mental Health Certification.

I also speak Spanish and Hungarian.
