Dr. Witcraft provides therapy to pregnant and postpartum people with mood and anxiety disorders, substance use disorders, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and insomnia. She has a particular interest in working with pregnant and parenting women and people with opioid use disorder.

Dr. Witcraft earned her Doctor of Philosophy in Clinical Psychology from the University of Mississippi, where she received extensive training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and related approaches, including mindfulness- and acceptance-based strategies, for adults with anxiety disorders, depression, and substance use disorders.
