Margarita Baldeo, LCSW

I am a bilingual Licensed Clinical Social Worker through the State of New Jersey. I am fluent in Spanish. I graduated from Rutgers University Graduate School of Social Work with my Master's degree in Clinical Social Work. My background includes working with individuals and families in outpatient mental health programs, victims of abuse/assault, and school based youth programs. I received advanced clinical training in play therapy, infertility counseling, pregnancy loss, as well as treating perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. I am a member of Postpartum Support International, the Perinatal Mental Health Alliance for People of Color, and the Mental Health Professional Group of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine.

I have a passion for helping women who find themselves feeling totally lost at this parenthood stage in their life. Trouble conceiving and feeling anything less than blissful postpartum are not openly talked about in our society. It is an honor to hold that sacred space where you can talk about these struggles openly and find your way back to feeling confident and enjoying life again. I practice psychodynamic psychotherapy, or "talk therapy," which explores patterns of behavior, unresolved trauma, and acknowledgement of reoccurring feelings. Through the psychodynamic model, I also draw upon cognitive behavioral techniques. I look forward to working through this journey with you!
