Parenting Support Services

Being a parent can be both incredibly rewarding and incredibly challenging. Every parent wants to give their child the best, especially the best parenting. Sometimes that's a difficult goal to achieve. A particularly challenging child, stresses from jobs and relationships, parental mental health challenges, or one's own past, can interfere with your ability to effectively parent your child.

As children develop, their brains "mirror" their parent's brain. In other words, the parent's own growth and development, or lack of those, impact the child's brain. As parents become more aware and emotionally healthy, their children reap the rewards and move toward health as well.

Prenatal/Postpartum Mood Disorders

If you're experiencing overwhelming feelings of sadness, anxiety, anger, or are having trouble getting through the days and nights of pregnancy or with a new baby, you deserve help and support. Prenatal and postpartum mood disorders go beyond the "baby blues" and can disrupt more than just your own functioning—they also impact your baby.

Couples Counseling for New Parents

The transition to becoming parents can be incredible, and incredibly challenging. As new parents or parents-to-be you may be worried about maintaining your connection as a couple, figuring out how to share the work of caring for a newborn, and where all the money goes. You are not alone! Two-thirds of new parents experience conflict, disappointment, and hurt feelings.

Learn how to work together as a team by improving communication and problem solving, creating rituals for self-care and relationship building, and improving your ability to connect with your baby.

Maybe you feel like you're becoming the kind of parent you always swore you would never be. Or you've begun to feel like a failure because your relationship with your child consists of lots screaming and defiance and very little affection.

We work together to explore your parenting style and your child's needs in order to help you build the parenting skills that best suit your family's needs.
