Nurture Your Emotional Health
Maternal Mental Health Counseling
Let's say it out loud together: being a mom is hard. That's not to say there aren't moments of it you love; aspects of it that aren't rewarding; or that you don't love those children of yours.
But it IS to say that motherhood is a job that often leaves you feeling:
exhausted; unnoticed; unappreciated; even unsure of yourself altogether.
There are days you feel like there’s no way you can get to a place of feeling a bare minimum of “okay”, not even to speak of that long-forgotten feeling of “happy.”
Internal feelings of fulfillment, excitement about the future with your family, and general contentment about your day-to-day life seem unattainable—you’re too tired and just too surrounded by chaos, both in your environment and inside yourself, to believe that those aspects of life can be part of your experience.
If you’re a mother in St. Louis feeling like:
your fuse is getting too short too often; you’re upset with yourself for snapping at your kids sometimes; you’re overwhelmed with the mom gig and simultaneously nervous about doing it for the rest of your life; you don’t know who you are anymore; your emotions are out of control and you don’t want to keep feeling like this…
You’re not alone.
And, as a therapist, I can help.
Whether you're a Missouri mom battling:
post-partum depression or anxiety; a loss of sense of self; parenting struggles; feelings of isolation; hopelessness; or constant feelings of overwhelm...
I am here for you. Counseling can help you come out on the other side.
With maternal mental health counseling, we can work together to help you:
regain your footing in this mom gig. We explore and find ways to help you enjoy “momming” more often than not. I help you uncover your strengths and regularly apply them to your daily life so you can increase your confidence in yourself and your parenting skills. And I am dedicated to helping you gain control and influence over your emotions, instead of the other way around.
Moms, you are multi-dimensional.
You are strong, and brave, and talented.
And it's okay if you have momentarily forgotten that.
Whether or not it's your first baby, those first several months (maybe even the first 12-18) have left you in a place where you're pretty sure things just shouldn't feel like this.
You're out of those early postpartum days and suddenly you've realized just how hard you were white-knuckling it all of those years. You want to rediscover yourself while also strengthening your confidence as "mom."
Moms of Teens
You want back the "three-nager" years but you've arrived at the real deal: the actual teen years. And you're in shock at how hard this is and how much parenting your teenager takes out of you almost daily.
