DR. COMBS WAS an essential part of my path back to good mental health after suffering with PPD AND PPA. About her work, she says: "My approach to psychotherapy is collaborative and interactive, creating a safe environment to discuss and reflect on the current issues that bring you into my office.  I work with the goal of relieving your immediate suffering while also thinking of the longer term goal of better understanding yourself and your relationship to the world around you – work, school, relationships with friends, your partner or other family members.
