About Us

our story

MMHETX was created by two local therapists with the same vision in mind: to provide specialized care for parents in all the phases of parenthood. In 2021, Katherine Stanglin and Melodye Phillips met, discovered a shared passion, and joined forces to create a specialized space for parents. Katherine brought years of experience as a doula and Melodye brought years of experience as a therapist. The vision of MMHETX was born from seeing that the needs of moms, dads, and birthing persons often go unmet. Specialty treatment for perinatal mental health was lacking in East Texas and Katherine and Melodye stepped in to fill in that gap.

A focus on maternal mental health

Maternal Mental Health of East Texas values compassion, inclusivity, safety, and trained support. We want to provide a space where you can explore the entirety of parenthood. We work with parents suffering from infertility, anxiety/depression during pregnancy, postpartum depression, postpartum anxiety, and offer support for parenting and parenthood in all stages.
