About

The transition to parenthood can be exciting, but can also bring on feelings of anxiety, overwhelm and doubt, and many mothers feel isolated, exhausted and alone. As moms, we've been there: struggling to conceive, postpartum anxiety, the desire to do everything “right”, the constant worry about baby and wondering if what you're feeling is normal. We work with individuals and couples in all phases of life, with a strong focus on the fertility, pregnancy, postpartum and parenting periods, and have received extensive Maternal Mental Health training and certification from Postpartum Support International in Perinatal Mental Health.
We are here to listen with compassion and without judgment, and will help you gain insight, achieve growth and experience happiness. Our goal is for you to feel supported and heard and we are deeply committed to helping you to develop the tools you need to address your difficulties, to understand yourself more fully, and to live a more fulfilling life.
In pregnancy and parenthood, making appointments can be hard. We offer daytime, evening, and weekend appointments to help connect when is most convenient for you. All appointments are virtual, and attending to your pregnancy or parenting needs is encouraged - babies are always welcome! We welcome clients from anywhere in Ontario. www.bloompsychotherapy.ca

Heather Ratych's Groups

Postpartum Mom Support Group

Come and build your (virtual) community and join a group for moms (with babies up to 12 months old), where you can discuss the challenges, joys and concerns of motherhood in a safe and supportive environment. We cover the many questions and concerns that new moms often have including going through the emotional ups and downs, your adjustment to parenthood as an individual and a couple, managing overwhelm, self-care, and more. You will be invited to share and connect, and to understand yourself and grow through connecting with others’ experiences. Fees are covered by extended health plans that include social work services.
