Dr. Allison Davis, MS, LPC(C), PhD
Founder, Southwest Perinatal Counseling
As a counselor, educator, and researcher of maternal mental health, Allison's psychoecological approach to maternal wellness, grounded in the natural world, helps mothers root into who they are and who they are becoming through the perinatal period and beyond. As founder of Southwest Perinatal Counseling, she brings a developmental approach to mothers and clinicians in New Mexico and Texas through counseling, courses, and clinical community. Her research on the development of a mothers' ecological growth in the transition into motherhood, or matrescence, focuses on reframing eco-related distress as resilience and offering a path through the mental health dangers of idealized green motherhood.
