Elizabeth baron, Ma, MHC has two complimentary roles at The Motherhood Center which allow her to be involved in both external relations and treatment.
Clinically, she is focused on the transition into and through motherhood – from the preconception stage through early childhood development and parenting. On the marketing side, she has been in the treatment room with women struggling with Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders (PMADs) which has allowed her the opportunity to tap into resources and begin outreach with companies in innovative ways to support the care of more mothers. She is working to destigmatize maternal mental illness and is passionate about helping women through all stages of motherhood, both in treatment and by advocating for their needs in the systems they are in.
Her unique position helps to give voice to those who are struggling to find theirs while also getting the public to listen and better understand PMADs. She earned her Master’s Degree from Columbia University’s Teachers College and is a member of Postpartum Support International and the American Psychological Association. With a lifelong interest in holistic health, she supports the integration of different practices for optimal wellness and believes in combining care for the body and self.
