The decision to start a family is fraught with myths, expectations, and ideals. In reality, parenthood is different for everyone, and filled with ups and downs of enormous magnitude. When we try to fit parenthood into a perfect box, we leave little space for people to create their own story. If you are planning a family, expecting a child, have recently had an infant join your family, are struggling with parenting your young children, and/or are feeling disconnected from yourself and your loved ones, therapy can be helpful for you!
With warmth and compassion, I will get to know you and your hopes for therapy. My practice is absolutely judgement free, highly trauma-informed, and I am passionate about healing within relationships. I have specialized my training in Infant Mental Health and am pursuing my PMH-C from Postpartum Support International.
I firmly believe that you can have mixed emotions about parenthood, experience the baby blues, or even have a perinatal mood/anxiety disorder and still be a good parent. If you’re curious about how therapy can help you, please reach out to Attuned Families for a consultation with our Client Care Coordinator.
