Amy Didden, LCSW 144 Kings Highway Suite 303, Dover, DE 19901 302-231-2312
In 1997, I graduated from Tufts University in Medford, MA with an undergraduate degree in clinical psychology. During college, I volunteered on the university’s peer hotline and in a domestic violence shelter. In 1999, I graduated from Smith College in Northampton, MA with a Masters Degree in Clinical Social Work.
I have been a licensed clinical social worker in the state of Delaware since 2002, and have worked in a variety of outpatient and intensive outpatient mental health settings. After having two children and recognizing the unique challenges of the transition to parenthood, I decided to focus my career on helping other moms. I earned certificates in the treatment of perinatal mood disorders from Postpartum Support International and the Postpartum Stress Center and opened my private practice in 2011. I utilize interventions based on positive neuroplasticty, parts work, and EMDR. I have a special interest in how mindfulness skills can be used to deal with the stresses of parenthood, and never underestimate the power of laughter, pets, and the great outdoors.
In 2018, I helped to found the Delaware Chapter of Postpartum Support International. In my first three years, I served as Secretary and for the last two years have served as the chapter's Chair. In my tenure, I have started a chapter Listserv for providers, a chapter newsletter for perinatal community in DE, and a Meet & Greet to engage participation in the chapter.
I am grateful to have the opportunity to do work that is meaningful to me. I feel honored to be part of the healing process with the women who share their stories with me.
