One of the most challenging life transitions is the addition of a child to your life. Many women find themselves overwhelmed and ashamed or embarrassed to ask for help. Are you pregnant and worried about the challenges of raising a baby? Are you working with a surrogate or adoptive family and worried about the connection to your child? Are you experiencing irritability, guilt, shame, fear, sadness, crying spells, or other strong emotions after the birth of a child? Are you a mother who just feels overwhelmed by the daily obligations of parenthood?
If any of these situations sounds familiar, do not feel ashamed to reach out for help. We are far too hard on ourselves as parents. Every parent encounters struggles at one point or another. If you feel challenged by parenthood, I would love to work with you to develop self-compassion and restore a sense of balance to your life. You can be a fantastic parent without losing yourself in the process!
