Jody Barnes, LCSW-C
Perinatal Mental Health Therapist
“I love working with mothers and birthing people to create space for connection and healing throughout the parenting journey. I want to see our culture center the care of mothers and birthing people, particularly during the perinatal time. I truly believe that the future of healthy families begins with maternal wellness.”
Jody Barnes is a perinatal therapist, certified yoga instructor, and doula with over 20 years of experience supporting families through postpartum care with body-inclusive care practices.
Her expertise in trauma-informed care and maternal wellness is reflected in her ability to bridge the neuroscience of bonding, attachment, stress, and trauma healing, with traditional wisdom. Her care practices are personalized and are aimed to restore the mind, body, heart, and spirit.
Her therapeutic orientations are trauma-informed, strength based, attachment focused and experiential.
Jody lives in Maryland with her husband, daughter, 5 chickens, 2 horses, 2 cats and 1 dog. When she is not working, you can find her spending time with her family, hiking, gardening, cooking yummy meals or thrift shopping.
