Annika O’Melia, LISW

Psychotherapist

I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker in the state of Iowa with over a decade of experience providing mental health assessment, diagnosis, and treatment. Since 2009, I have focused on working with women, primarily during the reproductive and perinatal time of life. I specialize in treating mood and anxiety disorders during pregnancy and in the postpartum period but also enjoy working with women grappling with addiction or facing unresolved trauma. It has been a great privilege of my life to sit with women as they so bravely develop awareness around their challenges, acknowledge their strengths, and cultivate a deeper understanding of how to embrace wellness.

I draw on a variety of therapeutic techniques that help you to clarify your values and goals, to raise awareness of the thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and emotions that act as barriers in your life, and to develop skills, strategies, and new ways of thinking and being in the world that move you closer toward living the life you envision.

If you think I’m the right fit for your unique needs and wants, I look forward to working with you.

Warmly,
