Delta Larkey, M.A., LMFT, CPLC
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist
MN Board Approved Supervisor
My journey as a maternal mental health therapist began after the birth of my first daughter. My birth and postpartum experience revealed a lack of support and candor surrounding perinatal mood disorders, when birth doesn’t go the way you expected and the challenges of becoming a parent. It was this experience that spurred my desire to work with individuals and families along the reproductive journey. Alyssa Wright and I co-founded The Family Development Center in Fall 2013.
I have been providing therapy services for more than a decade in various settings. I am a systems-trained therapist that values the importance of working with individuals, couples, and families within the context of their relationships. My therapeutic approach is rooted in Experiential, Psychodynamic, and Attachment therapies. I also have training in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and Internal Family Systems Therapy. I am thoughtful, curious, compassionate and love to laugh. I use these strengths in my work with the people and families I serve. I feel particularly passionate about working with individuals and families surrounding traumatic birth,
pregnancy loss (miscarriage, medical termination, elective termination), traumatic grief, infant death, postpartum anxiety, and the transition to parenthood. I am certified in Perinatal Loss Care through the Hospice and Palliative Credentialing Center. I am also a Certified Provider in Compassionate Bereavement Care.
I have spent a large portion of my career working with children, adolescents and families struggling with poverty, addiction and trauma. That work is never far from my heart and has shaped how I work with people. I believe it is my duty as a therapist to have an intersectional framework, which means always acknowledging the interconnectedness of social categorizations and their impact on disadvantage and discrimination.
