About

A Preventative Model Of Care

Starting a family can be enormously gratifying as well as very overwhelming at times. Being a parent is not easy and parenting methods are often drawn from one's own childhood experiences. We offer you parenting classes, relationship support, and counseling services that can bring fresh understanding, growth, and empowerment to your family. Well Baby Center offers each member of the family the opportunity to learn new ways to mediate struggles and enrich their relationships, which has been especially challenging during and post-pandemic. All services are low-cost and provided on a sliding scale. We can help you gain the confidence and skills to have a balanced work and home life once again.

Our Mission

Well Baby Center believes that every family deserves a place to feel supported, especially in the beginning. By strengthening family connections, healing past traumas, and providing social support, we help families and communities thrive.

Well Baby Center's Philosophy

Well Baby's integrative, multi-disciplinary perspective is drawn from the fields of psychoanalytic theory, developmental psychology, infant brain science, and attachment theory -- all of which have shown that when we as parents are able to mindfully reflect on our interactions with our children, three things occur: we don't burden them with our own unresolved childhood issues, we help them to reach their full developmental potential, and we help them to build satisfying, lifelong relationships with others. We strive to guide parents through the process of self-healing and discovery so they can be present with their new child's budding sense of self. By sensitively working with new parents, we aim to nurture early relationships that are the cornerstone of an infant's emotional, cognitive, and physical growth and development. Our parenting and counseling center provides another vital element for parents: a like-minded community where they can truly belong. We know it is difficult to find trustworthy, experienced professionals to guide you. We would be honored to be a part of your journey to wholeness.
