"Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and by honoring the questions, one day, you will live your way into the answers"- Rainer Maria Rilke
Dr. Fraga specializes in women's health concerns with a focus on maternal mental health. In her work, she helps clients explore and understand the many identity transitions that pregnancy and new motherhood can bring. She works with clients struggling with postpartum anxiety and depression, as well as with mothers who are mourning the loss of their own parents or mothers.
Her clinical work is rooted in psychoanalytic and psychodynamic theories, as well as mindfulness-based practices.
Referred to as 'depth psychology,' psychodynamic therapy helps clients explore how early childhood and family experiences can play out in the present moment and contribute to their distress or feelings of stuckness. From a psychoanalytic lens, therapeutic relationships help clients uncover new insights, which can alter one's thinking and lead to long-term growth and change.
In addition to her private practice, she co-facilitates a postpartum support group, "The Afterglow" for the UCSF Women's Health & Resource Center, as well as "The New Nest," a pregnancy support workshop, also held at UCSF.
