You are not alone on this journey
Transition to Motherhood
I strongly believe that a woman’s journey to motherhood is complex and varied. Since children do not come with manuals, you are in the position of having to continuously create one that works for you and your family. Together our work will focus on supporting you in ridding yourself of being the mother you need to be or supposed to be to discover your confidence and comfort in being the mom that you are.
Struggling with Pregnancy
Pregnancy Anxiety & Depression
You may find that your racing thoughts keep you from sleeping and your feelings of overwhelm keep you from feeling like yourself. You are struggling with uncertainty, fears and anxiety of what the future may look like. The discomforts of pregnancy and the constant expectations for what this time in your life is supposed to look like are driving you crazy. I provide a space for women to focus on themselves and their own needs during this time in their lives.
Infertility & IVF
Infertility can be a painful process filled with relentless loss and grief. It can be a painful spiral when you are constantly asked by friends, acquaintances and strangers if you want children and why you don’t have them yet. You are constantly reminded of your loss every time you are invited to your friend’s baby shower, a child’s birthday party, or seeing children run around at the mall. Flooded by the shame, feelings of failure and self-blame, it may be difficult to overcome.
Miscarriage & Pregnancy Loss
Loss is loss, and grief is grief. Simply put, loss at any stage can be felt deeply and painfully. Oftentimes, we try to minimize or rationalize our loss to not make it seem so bad. Yet, doing so does not give us the healthy opportunity to process our loss. A miscarriage is no exception. I am committed to providing women the space where it is okay for them to experience their emotions without having to make it more comfortable for others so that they can grieve on their own terms.
Struggling with Postpartum
Postpartum Anxiety & Depression
When the experience of motherhood does not turn out the way you had hoped, it can be difficult to find enjoyment in your day to day. When you don't feel like yourself and fearful of how you will ever feel like you again, it's easy to become overwhelmed by sadness, guilt, and shame. If you are struggling with connecting with your baby, please know that you are not alone and that it will be okay, even if does not feel like it right now. It can be difficult to navigate this trying time when you are fearful of how others may judge you in your experience. Part of my commitment to you is to embrace you as you are, I am non-judgemental and focus my work with new moms on supporting you to feel confidant as a mom and more importantly feel empowered as a woman to be yourself.
Every woman's experience of motherhood is different. Let me be the first to tell you that your needs matter. Your mental health and well-being is important.
