Parenting & Postpartum Support
No matter what stage of parenting you are in, I can help support you to enjoy parenting more, connect, and consciously parent.
Extra Parenting Support
You're exhausted and it feels endless. Even when you can sleep, it's hard not to do the dishes or laundry that you didn't get a chance to get to earlier. You are trying to do everything you can to take care of your little human, but it's hard not to feel like you are failing despite your best efforts. You can vaguely remember a time before when the house was clean, you could shower regularly, and you could leave the house by just walking out the door. Now it's hard just to get through the day to day and keeping up with things feels like a constant uphill battle.
Maybe you can't stop crying. Or you have intrusive thoughts that leave you paralyzed with anxiety and keep you from sleeping. You feel irritable and it's hard not to get into fights over small things. If only you could just sleep.
You just want to be able to enjoy your time with your baby; it wasn't supposed to feel like this and you want to be able to connect and enjoy this time with your little one.
You're not alone. About 1 in 7 women suffer from postpartum anxiety, depression, or bipolar episodes. About 1 in 10 men have mental health struggles postpartum, too. We can work to make it so that you can enjoy being a parent more.
I have a certificate in Perinatal Mental Health (PMH-C); the reason I do is because I feel passionately about helping people who are parents be able to enjoy being parents more. To help you cope with the day-to-day struggles (which are very real) and connect with our kids more.
As a mother of 3 children myself, I can't remember the last time I slept through the night. I also have had a child who was "high needs" and we later learned was neurodivergent. As a baby, sleep was a nightmare and it took a lot of time and effort to figure out what would help. My other kids have never been "good" sleepers either and they (and I) still regularly woke up into the toddler years. I get it; it's exhausting.
And parenting can also be amazing. It's amazing to have little people who love learning about the world, who regularly make you laugh, and who teach you just as much as you teach them. That is the amazing duality of being a parent--the difficulty alongside the increased meaning in your life.
My goal is to help you enjoy parenting more, no matter what stage you are in. The first year has it's own struggles, but so do the years after that. They go from sweet babies to talkative toddlers to questioning older kids. Sometimes kids push our buttons, the ones that we still have (sometimes from our own childhood) and maybe didn't realize weren't resolved until now. We can work to figure that out and how to help you cope and ultimately to connect.
