Hygeia Public Health

Dr. Jill is your guide, support, and educator through maternal and family issues such as perinatal depression, PTSD, FASD, trauma, and other mental health concerns.  She focuses on mother–infant dyads affected by these issues which show promising effects on family and parenting relationships and infant regulation.

At least 8% to 10% of children younger than 5 years experience clinically significant and impairing mental health problems, which include emotional, behavioral, and social relationship problems. By providing psychoeducation, guidance, and support, Dr. Jill is able to help empower families to become more responsible and attentive with decreased rates of disorganized attachment.

 In the most stressed families, this type of intervention is also associated with decreased infant behavioral difficulties and increased parental sensitivity (2).
