Journeying alongside families
through life’s transitions
Are you a mother or expectant mother who is struggling or feeling overwhelmed with stress in your life and don’t know how to change it?
Do you feel isolated or alone or simply want to connect with other mothers in a similar phase of life?
The transition to parenthood is exciting, but can also be overwhelming and nerve-wracking, and many mothers feel isolated, exhausted and alone. Caring for children demands physical, mental and emotional energy, and many people feel anxious about their life post-partum and making so many new decisions. If you are a new mother, you may find yourself journeying through dark and unknown places, or you may be looking for others in a similar phase to build a village of support with. As your children grow, the challenges become different, but the demands remain high, and your own mental health and wellbeing can be neglected.
As a mom of three, I’ve been there- the desire to do everything “right”, the constant worry about your baby and whether or not what he/she is doing is “normal”, whether or not how you’re feeling is “normal”, how on earth you'll ever get through these years. Talk therapy is a powerful means for change and psychotherapy can help you to find solutions to the issues you are facing. By applying a therapeutic approach customized to you and your life, we will work together to help you gain insight, achieve growth and experience happiness. Although trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Hypnotherapy and Solution-Focused Therapy, I create a warm, supportive environment, using approaches that are the best fit for you, with a focus on giving you what you need. I work with teenagers and women in all phases of life, and have received certification from Postpartum Support International in Perinatal Mental Health.
Not feeling ready for individual therapy, or just wanting some support from other moms? Come and build your village and join a group for expecting or post-partum mothers, where you can discuss the challenges, joys and concerns of new motherhood in a safe and supportive environment. Connect with others, build a community of support, have a tea, laugh and cry! Discover which of our prenatal and postpartum support groups are right for you!
We recognize that families are built in many ways and welcome any and all families! Babies are always welcome! Skype and telephone sessions available!
