Therapy for Working Moms in Chicago, IL

You barely have the energy to be reading this page. In fact, you’re at your wit’s end and it is the umpteenth time you’ve felt like this in recent memory. You’ve tried telling yourself that “it’s just a phase” and that “as soon as x happens, things will get back to normal and you’ll be okay again.”

This Gets Old Fast

 

As that mantra gets used over and over and over again, it has started to get worn out. It used to have a pretty good impact-you’d take a deep breath, square your shoulders, and walk into your next meeting feeling okay again. But now when you try to tell yourself that it’s going to be okay, the impact lasts about 1 minute….if that. 

As a working mom, you’re expected not only to give 100% in every environment but to have that 100% available for anyone and anything 24/7. You’d laugh at the ridiculous expectation that’s been set up for you if it wasn’t so not funny. Maybe you'd cry about it if you weren’t so utterly spent and exhausted. 

You Feel You Have No Control, Therefore Therapy for Moms in Chicago is on Your Mind

And because you can no longer summon any emotion, you’re here. Looking at what therapy for a working mom even has the potential to do for you. Especially since you're moving from stressed and burnout out to overwhelmed mom. 

You’re probably hoping it can at least help you feel again…..as a working overwhelmed mom, the feelings you long to experience again likely include:

  • capable

  • rested

  • happy or content

  • grateful

  • excited

  • cared for

  • did we say capable?

You’re looking to get rid of the nagging emotions of:

  • on the verge of tears

  • too tired to even think

  • dissatisfied

  • hopeless

  • flat

  • blunted

  • irritable

  • intermittently explosively angry or frustrated

  • postpartum mom, transitioning back to the office after maternity leave

The Marble Wellness Approach to Therapy for Moms in Chicago, IL

We do this by first taking the lead in the therapy room. You’ve taken charge of everything else so far. And while we want…and need… you to be an active and engaged participant in the relationship, you can actually walk in without a plan.

 

That’s right. You can just come in and dump….and we will construct a road forward from there.

What You Can Expect in Therapy for Working Moms

Our therapy process consists of a lot of validating. Because you’re probably not getting much of that. And having someone help you see very clearly how much you’re doing can be the right start to the rest of the change process. Plus, we will work on change, because we know what you know: how things are operating right now is not sustainable.

The change process will be something we walk through with you. What does that look like? It’s a combination of interventions that are tailored to you and delivered in a timeline that makes the most sense, but often includes a combination of:

  • providing accountability;

  • helping you gain insight into yourself and your patterns;

  • increasing communication skills;

  • shifting perspective that is holding you hostage in your current habits;

  • adding small- and medium-sized daily habits that rejuvenate your spirit and build your energy;

  • and establishing boundaries that serve you across environments.

Techniques That Work in Therapy

We do this through a series of techniques and interventions that include skills from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy; Motivational Interviewing; Narrative Therapy; Acceptance and Commitment Therapy; and more.

These techniques and interventions mean we’re often also digging into, and then making changes around:

  • Core beliefs

  • Relationship patterns

  • Thought patterns (especially the distorted ones!)

  • Expectations (those stated out loud and otherwise!)

  • Maladaptive stories you’ve engrained into your self-talk

 

On the other side of in-person and online therapy in Illinois, you’ll feel like you can:

  • Enjoy time with your family again

  • Go to bed without thoughts racing about what all needs to get done in short order

  • Quiet your mind so you can actually enjoy quiet (when you find it!)

  • Delegate better in your household

  • Take time to do things you enjoy

  • Navigate times of stress in a way that you can feel proud of

  • Manage the chaos, instead of the chaos managing you

 

You deserve all of that and more. And you deserve it sooner rather than later. You’re doing better than you think, and we’re here to help you do as best as you want. That's why when you're ready, therapy for moms and therapy for working moms in Chicago, IL is waiting for you!
