Hi There! We are very happy to meet you here, as we have some exciting news to share with you. We are two women who are both mothers and who also trained as therapists. In our personal life, we see friends and family struggle with the new transition into parenthood. Issues of postpartum depression, conflict between couples, and the lack of emotional support for mothers can really impact our overall well-being. As professionals, we have learned ways to help women cope with this adjustment, and have a wealth of tools and resources to help women during this time.
As we are very passionate about supporting women with their overall well-being and wellness, we opened our practice in 2015 to provide therapeutic support that covers perinatal and postpartum issues. For instance, body image issues, transition into this new phase of life, parenting concerns, struggles you have with this new identity as a parent, birth trauma, postpartum depression/anxiety, infertility, stillborn/miscarriage loss, and relationship/couple counselling. We also believe that issues around being a parent can come up in any stage of life, and so we can provide support to you regardless of your child’s age. We are here to help with the transitions you go through!
We know that new mothers can be quite isolated from getting support in those first early weeks. But as studies prove, postpartum care needs to include a holistic approach to ensure that depression or further mental health concerns do not escalate. With this in mind, we are available to come to woman’s homes, in order to provide more accessible and tangible support. Sometimes when we have children, we get stuck in judging ourselves and not feeling the happiness that is expected of us. We can work with you through feelings of depression, low self-esteem, anger that you have experienced and/or ‘mom guilt’ that you’re stuck feeling, negative body image, and creating a more intentional way of living.
Please note that while our focus is on women and mothers, we also strongly believe that all families are valued and equal. We work from an anti-oppression lens and support women and any form their relationships take, be it a cis-gendered heterosexual relationship, single/sole parenting, same-sex couple and trans or gender fluid.
We also provide groups for expectant and new mothers, with a focus on maternal wellness and mental health. Please go to the Mother Wellness Care Group page for more info and dates.
