Lorissa D. Eichenberger

Lorissa received her master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of Houston-Clear Lake in 2010. A self-described “birth nerd,” she began her journey into motherhood in 2008 with the birth of her first of four children. As new parents without family locally, it was a struggle for she and her husband to find resources for mental health support following a traumatic birth. So, Lorissa joined local birth/breastfeeding groups, and she subsequently attended trainings for doula and lactation support to further enhance her professional capacity as a therapist. Lorissa then chose to specialize her practice and focus her passion by supporting the mental wellness of mothers and their families in the Greater Houston Area.

Lorissa is a member of the International Cesarean Awareness Network (ICAN) and fiercely believes in helping women make educated and informed choices about their pregnancy, birth provider, and preferences for childbirth when possible.  Lorissa is an active member of the Houston Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (HAMFT) and the Texas Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (TAMFT). She is recognized by Postpartum Support International as a Certified Perinatal Mental Health Specialist (PMH-C) with advanced training and experience working with perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs). She periodically speaks at local moms’ groups and presents at conferences each year on PMADs. Lorissa strives to create a nurturing and safe place for clients to feel heard, validated, and empowered.  Her areas of special interest include but are not limited to birth trauma, perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, partner support systems therapy, and parenting education.
