Message to clients

You have been planning for this for so long. The nursery looks perfect, the baby gear has been assembled and you felt totally ready for this baby! You felt confident. You dreamt of the first time you'd hold your baby and fall madly in love. But that wasn’t your experience. You didn’t feel the instant bond you expected. It’s a struggle to get through the day and you dread the nights. You feel sad, irritable, exhausted, and sometimes resentful towards your partner for the sleep they're getting while you're up at night with the baby. On top of it all, you feel guilty for these feelings. This has to be more than the baby blues, right?

You deserve to have the motherhood experience you have been looking forward to. With my knowledge from clinical and lived experiences I can help you get there! I provide a safe space where you will feel supported to express your feelings and thoughts without feeling judged. I will collaborate with you to develop an individualized plan that includes learning new coping skills, identifying available support people in your life and connecting you to resources in your community.

Let’s work together to get you not only feeling comfortable in your new role as a mom but thriving in it. I can help you embrace your new role with calm, competence and renewed confidence. You are not alone. Contact me right now for a free 20-minute consultation. It’s my privilege to help you
