Current Therapy Offerings:
Parents who experienced fertility challenges are tasked with a unique set of mental gymnastics. Just like parents who became pregnant on their own, we feel exhausted, anxious, and sad at times. After all, parenting isn’t easy, right? But, as parents who experienced fertility challenges, we often expect parenting to bring us only joy. After all, we worked so hard and wanted so much to become parents and finally have exactly what we wanted, right? Inevitably, shame and guilt for having these (everyday parenting) feelings come rushing in, increasing our isolation. If this sounds familiar, we’d love for you to join us!
There’s nothing quite like the delirious joy that comes from caring for a newborn. As you know, being called to care for someone with such tentative whimpers and delicate cries is an incredible experience. For many of us, the “fourth trimester,” or first three months after labor and delivery, can be a time not only of joy but also of uncertainty. We are exhausted to say the least, and yet we keep moving ahead, immersed in love, in our new role as parent. If this sounds familiar, we’d love for you to join our Fourth Trimester/New Parents Therapy Group with other parents who, like you, are knee-deep in the fourth-trimester trenches.
Parenting Psychotherapy Group (Virtual)
Now more than ever, parents are lonely, exhausted, held to ridiculously high standards, and judged poorly for inevitably falling short. Why wouldn't feelings of anxiety and depression come rushing in? Perhaps together we could change the self-talk from "I'm the bad parent if I don't..." to simply "I'm the parent." We're proud to offer a safe, compassionate, and supportive place to help emotionally empower parents. We hope that you will consider joining us!
Fertility and More Kids Psychotherapy Group (Virtual)
Parents who experienced fertility challenges often say that thinking about having more children is just too much. Now that we know how fragile it all is– simply being able to hold our baby in our arms– it’s too painful for us to think about potentially not being able to either become pregnant or to sustain a pregnancy. Perhaps we find that we’re hesitating to call the fertility clinic or worrying that we could add to our losses. Maybe we’re overwhelmed by trying to hold in tension the hope of having another child with the fear of excruciating loss. If this sounds familiar, we hope that you’ll consider joining our Fertility and More Kids Psychotherapy Group.
