Jessie Howell, B.A is a second-year master's degree counseling intern with a passion for supporting women's needs in mental health. As a woman who experienced Postpartum Depression, she understands first-hand how moms who develop a tribe will thrive rather than just survive.
Amber Fender, LISW-CP/S is a clinical social worker and owner of Tides Therapy and Consulting, LLC. Amber Fender is a prior public health social worker who created the group therapy curriculum. Having given birth in the throes of late fall 2020, she understands the effects of PPD and need for support. Amber hopes to create and sustain approachable mental health support for moms without the stigma of weakness, but rather strength to make your needs known and meet them together!
What is support group?
Support groups are different than group therapy. Postpartum Support of Charleston currently provides this service to all moms. In this type of setting, participants may share their common experiences and concerns to support each other with encouragement, comfort, and advice. Click here for more information.
What is group therapy?
Tides Community Group Therapy is a meeting of one hour per week for 8 weeks online or in person with curriculum-based mental health therapy provided by a counseling professional to grow peace of mind. The counseling professional leading the group will guide participants through customizable exercises and worksheets just as one would in 1:1 therapy. Meeting with others in the community, participants are reminded they are not alone. Others in similar circumstances can learn and support through sharing experiences and progress over time.
What are the perks?
Exchange ideas, stories, and support in a private online discussion board with other workshop members between meeting times.
Grow your peace with interactive quizlets and reflections to track your growth.
All participants have unlimited access to curriculum material to revisit independently between group sessions.
Unlimited access to bonus material (audio/video) to help keep participants encouraged every single week.
Tides Community programs were developed in partnership with Post Partum Support of Charleston to meet the needs of our community with our best practices.
It is the mission of Tides Therapy and Consulting, LLC to help all people create possibilities by embracing life changes.

It is the mission of Postpartum Support of Charleston to put mom first with an approachable, accessible safety net woven through moms helping moms - we believe that a healthy mom makes for a healthy baby and, ultimately, she and her family living their healthiest, happiest life.
This community program is created to acknowledge the past and present while focusing on a growth mindset. Amber designed the curriculum material with years of experiences working in hospice, having a child with special needs, and 1:1 therapy with the most effective interventions from Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy interventions. The curriculum has been adapted with you in mind!
