Team Approach

You will be able to forge a close relationship with your provider from the convenience of your home.  I am dedicated to taking the time to listen to, know, and partner with my clients.  You are not alone.

Inclusive and Welcoming

All children deserve to have mentally healthy parents and all parents deserve the opportunity to find joy throughout their parenthood journey.  We aim to be accepting, and compassionate to clients from all walks of life.  We will meet you where you are and help you get to where you want to be.  

What if my symptoms are something more?  I've got you covered!

  • Previous depression or anxiety

  • Difficulty with hormonal fluctuations (especially before your period)

  • Family history of postpartum mood or anxiety symptoms

Hi, I'm Heather

A Nurse Practitioner for moms who are interested in optimizing their mental health during preconception, pregnancy, and early parenting.

Whether you are just considering pregnancy, already pregnant, postpartum, or a mom-of-many, you can find more joy in your motherhood journey!

Depression, anxiety, irritability, mood swings, or general feelings of being overwhelmed, can lead to resentment and fatigue. These struggles affect self-confidence, relationships, and overall well-being.

I can help you better understand, not only why this happens, but what you can do to safely and effectively find your path to wellness with evidenced-based therapeutic modalities and/or medications (if needed).

MEDICATION MANAGEMENT AND THERAPY
I see you momma.  With over 20 years experience in healthcare and 3 children of my own,  I understand how difficult making time for your own care can be.  I also know how traditional services fail to really meet your needs.  My services are offered through a HIPPA secure Telehealth platform to meet you where you are.  Longer appointments mean I will take the time to take CARE of YOU!  Available virtually for maternal mental health patients in NC and VA.

TRAUMATIC BIRTH PROCESSING WITH BRAINSPOTTING
Where you look affects how you feel!  Have you ever noticed that when you are deep in thought, especially with an uncomfortable memory, you may "get stuck staring"?  According to rapidly expanding research, by accessing the position of gaze, we can facilitate brain healing.  This gentle, patient-led process allows the brain to process trauma so that healing occurs and trauma loses its power.  Transformational healing!
Available for virtually for maternal mental patients in NC and VA.


ONLINE WORKSHOPS
Information you need to develop understanding and direction for taking control of the challenges of motherhood and your mental health.  Accessible, convenient, and engaging.  Bonus tips, worksheets, guides, and more..the course catalog is constantly expanding to bridge the disconnect between physical and mental symptoms and bring access to care to patients that would otherwise be unserved.  
Available for all.  You do not have to be a patient to access 
workshops.  Workshops are for educational purposes only and do not establish a patient-provider relationship.  They are asynchronous so you can learn at your own pace and convenience!

Heather Herman, NP, perinatal menatal health specialist for clients in NC and VA

You don't have to wait until a crisis to ask for help.  
It is simply enough to think:
"Being a mother is hard.
  
I could use some help".  

Taking care of your health

My platform is HIPPA compliant and easily accessed on desktop, laptop, tablet, and smart-phone devices.

I am an out-of-network provider. I will verify your out-of-network benefits, explain the cost of services, and file on your behalf so that you can receive the benefit of out-of-network coverage.

Seeking help requires courage.  Let me alleviate common concerns about mental health care and maternal wellness options.

Be the first to know when new workshops are available!

Let's stay in touch!

Thanks for submitting!
