Therapist of the Week: Missy Hem at Peaks and Valleys Perinatal Counseling in Batavia, IL

Meet Missy Hem, Licensed Clinical Social Worker of Peaks and Valleys Perinatal Counseling in Batavia, Illinois.

Specializing in trauma-informed therapy for people experiencing perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, Missy's mission is to walk alongside her clients toward a place of restoration and confidence.

"Taking care of your mental health is equally important as tending to your physical health," says Missy.
"I created Peaks and Valleys Perinatal Counseling to support people who are navigating the highs and lows of the family growing stage of life."

Missy supports pregnant individuals and parents and has a deep appreciation and reverence for the vital work of stepping into a parenting role.

During weekly sessions, Missy helps clients create a safe, caring, and confidential environment.

"The family-building stage of life can be stressful, overwhelming, physically grueling, and taxing on relationships," explains Missy. "Pregnant and newly postpartum people are navigating a highly personal and profound transformation--one which can elicit feelings of astonishing, expansive highs and painful, disorienting lows.

It can be hard to have such conflicting feelings, but it doesn’t mean that you’re a bad parent."
