Understanding Scary and Intrusive Thoughts


With Marriage and Family Therapist Dr. Cassidy Freitas 



Intrusive thoughts are thoughts that seem to become stuck in the mind. They usually cause distress, as the nature of the thought may be upsetting. Up to as many of 50% of pregnant and postpartum women experience these thoughts, but due to their nature, many are too ashamed to talk about them. Join Marriage and Family therapist Dr. Cassidy Freitas and I as we dive deep into these thoughts and how to help improve them.
