About Nurturing Mama Minds


We are Vicky + Beth, and we are honored that you are taking the time out of your busy schedule to check out Nurturing Mama Minds. Vicky is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Beth is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and we are both trained and certified in perinatal mental health.

Vicky + Beth met at an intensive two-day training for perinatal mental health in San Diego, CA. We both traveled to San Diego to attend the Perinatal Mental Health training led by renowned speakers and professionals with Postpartum Support International. We quickly hit it off and bonded over our passion of helping mamas find community on their motherhood journey. 


We started Nurturing Mama Minds because we are passionate about empowering mamas and their families with knowledge, and bringing community to all things motherhood!


Vicky Rutsch, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, PMH-C

For the past 10+ years, I have been focusing on providing care

for clients who struggle with anxiety, depression, impulse control,

and life-transition difficulties through the use of

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical

Behavioral Therapy (DBT), trauma-informed interventions, and

a focus on compassionate care that revolves around the relationship

between therapist and client.


I am so excited to bring my background in CBT and Perinatal

Mood and Anxiety Disorders to this community, helping women

receive compassionate care in their reproductive journey. 


Being a mother of two and a survivor of PMADs myself, I know

how hard it is to continue managing day-to-day operations without

a set of working coping skills, and how important it is to have

someone to support us in our attachment journey with our child.

You are not alone, and this is not your fault.

It truly takes a village to raise a child.

Beth Partain, Licensed Clinical Social Worker, PMH-C

​I have been working with families, mamas, and children for the last 7+ years providing a holistic and trauma-informed therapy experience.  I have training and experience in treating trauma, Depression, Anxiety, ADHD, Mood disorders, and adjustment to life changes. I am skilled in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Motivational Interviewing among other treatments. I like to incorporate meditation, yoga, and mindfulness into traditional therapeutic interventions to help you reach your mental wellness goals. 

As a NICU mama and PMADs survivor, it is important to me to help fight the stigma of perinatal mental health concerns through awareness, education, and practical life applications.

I, too, mesh my real-life and therapeutic experiences with my training in Perinatal Mental Health to provide education and care to mamas on their journey to and through motherhood. I know how much of a difference having a community of mamas and empathetic advice can make  in the outcome of PMADs.
