About Me

Hello! My name is Sarah Fell and I am a RN, Psychotherapist and Prenatal Educator. I live and work in York Region and am the mother of two precious boys.

Drawing on nearly 15 years of experience in obstetrics, infant and child health, and maternal mental well-being, I’m here to provide you with a lifeline of understanding and support during one of  the most transformational and unique stages of life– the transition to motherhood.

Combining my experience as a nurse with specialized training in psychotherapy and counselling skills, I offer a holistic approach to therapy that integrates my deep understanding of and connection to the perinatal period with evidence-based psychotherapy techniques.

Don’t let sorrow, fear, and doubt dim the joy of motherhood. If you are seeking solace and support, know that you are not alone. I am here to help!


At BECOMING Psychotherapy and Counseling Services you will receive compassionate and comprehensive support and guidance through specialized psychotherapy services aimed at protecting and promoting your mental health and well-being during pregnancy, postpartum, and beyond!

Frequently Asked Questions

Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorder is a term used to describe the full range of struggles that new moms, birthing people, and parents might face during pregnancy (prenatal), after experiencing a miscarriage, and any time during the first year following the birth of a baby (postpartum).

Perinatal Mood and  Anxiety Disorders include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Panic Disorder
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Postpartum Psychosis


Approximately 1 in 5 women and birthing people and about 1 in 10 new dads/partners will develop a PMAD.

PMADs greatly impact mental and emotional well-being and daily functioning, including parenting capabilities.

Without proper treatment and intervention, PMADs tend to persist and can have lasting adverse effects on the mental health of mothers, fathers/partners, and consequently, the entire family.

ALL new and expectant parents can experience a PMAD. However, the following are some factors that can increase risk:

  • Previous experience of depression or anxiety
  • Family history of depression or a mood disorder
  • Stressful life events
  • History of trauma
  • Difficulty getting pregnant
  • Unplanned/unwanted pregnancy
  • Pregnancy with twins/multiples
  • Medical complications during pregnancy
  • Complicated or traumatic birth
  • Sensitivity to hormonal changes
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Difficulties with breastfeeding
  • Relationship/marital problems
  • Financial insecurity
  • Little or no social support network


It's important to note that these risk factors do not guarantee the development of a PMAD and individuals without these factors can still be affected.

A Nurse, Psychotherapist or RN, Psychotherapist is a Registered Nurse (RN) who combines their nursing expertise and background in healthcare with specialized training in mental health, counselling skills, and psychotherapeutic interventions to provide holistic mental health support and psychotherapy to individuals experiencing emotional, psychological, and behavioral challenges.
