Group Counseling

Group therapy is a form of psychotherapy that involves a therapist, along with 5-10 members that are experiencing a similar concern. Group therapy can reduce wait times and give more people access to mental healthcare, and it is just as effective as individual therapy!

Evolving Into Motherhood: Anxiety + Depression Support for New Mothers (0-12mos post-birth)

Next group begins September 2024!

The first year of motherhood can be an all-encompassing roller-coaster ride. With soaring highs and devastating lows. While it can include joy, amazement, love, and excitement it can also be lonely, isolating, exhausting, scary, and guilt-ridden all at the same time. While these emotions are all a normal part of the motherhood experience sometimes, they can become overwhelming and prevent us from being the mother we want to be.


What you’ll get:
✨Support from a group of other mamas that understand what you're going through
✨Supplemental wellness offerings like yoga,meditation
✨Guidance from a licensed mental health counselor
✨Learning ways to manage your emotional journey
✨Identify ways in which to increase communication with your partner
✨Cultivate attachment + bonding with your baby

...and so much more!

Client Testimonials

"I have never participated in a group like this before but I am so glad that I did.
