I primarily work with parents/parents-to-be and families with young children. I empower parents to trust their instincts and feel comfortable with their own parenting decisions. There is an overwhelming amount of expert information available and no shortage of opinions! I use my expertise to help parents negotiate all the advice and information and make the best choices for their family. For those of us who weren't fortunate enough to have positive parenting role models, the guidance of an understanding professional like myself can be so helpful in supporting you to become the parent you want to be!

I specialize in families with children birth to five, adoption, later in life parents, and highly sensitive temperaments.

I have office space in Santa Monica and Playa Del Rey. Additionally, I like to see families in-home where children feel most comfortable. I offer support groups in Santa Monica including mommy & me and first time moms over 40.

Elaine Barrington's Groups

Mommy & Me

Meet weekly with moms of babies or toddlers to share experiences and learn about infant/early childhood development and parenting in a friendly, welcoming space. Discussions blend neuroscience with practical information, allowing you to make sense of your child's experiences. We also sing songs, play, and mindfully observe the little ones grow and learn. I present a variety of perspectives while simplifying information overload that, despite best intentions, makes many new moms feel overwhelmed, confused, and insecure. These groups are a safe place to explore questions and concerns. Gain confidence and deepen your connection with your baby while making friends for years to come!

More about this group

Moms 40+

These discussion groups for first-time moms over 40 meet one Wednesday evening a month. We share a lot of laughter, and sometimes tears, as we munch on sweet and savory snacks while discussing topics of interest to older, wiser, first-time moms. A down-to-earth bunch, moms come for the warmth of connection and friendship as much as for the thoughtful discussions about life and parenting. Participating moms have children born from 2007 to present.
