Announcement icon I am still accepting new clients and am offering phone and video sessions via SimplePRactice for clients who are distancing or quarantined.
Do you feel like all the other new parents seem to have it all together? Do you get easily irritated, anxious, and overwhelmed at the simplest things? Do you feel guilty because you have such a beautiful and good baby, but still feel like crap? Do you find yourself asking WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME? Having a baby changes everything! Even when you have longed for a baby the fatigue and exhaustion have the better of you. Your relationship has changed with your partner and not always for the better.
I will help you increase your confidence and embrace parenthood, decreasing your anxiety and fear. I will help you find balance between home/work/life or at least deal with the guilt that everything just can't be in balance, learn to cut yourself slack, and start enjoying parenthood more!!!
I specialize in helping couples prepare for the transition from pregnancy to parenthood by managing overwhelm, creating more ease and deepening connection. Provide counseling for women with perinatal mood and anxiety disorders and helping parents manage expectations of parenthood as well as understand developmental milestones of infants and children.

Catherine O'Brien's Groups

Just Between Moms

Being a mom can be overwhelming, frustrating, and exhausting. And now, the whole world has shut down. This adds a whole other layer of overwhelm and isolation on top of it all. (How do you even prepare for mothering in a pandemic anyway?) We know we need to do something different, but how, or where to fit in the time to do so. This group you will receive the understanding, support, and hope you need. Learn tools and techniques to trigger a calm response, regain mental clarity and emotional balance while tapping into limbic calming techniques. Please call to register.
