When you first saw that positive pregnancy test, you may have imagined "the pregnancy glow," dotingly dressing your bump in cute maternity clothes, and feelings of pure joy about your baby's arrival. But if you're being honest, pregnancy has been ROUGH.
Sure, you can grow a tiny human while you're cuddled up on the couch with your favorite TV show (how cool is that?!), but sometimes it feels like that's all you can bring yourself to do. You're exhausted, but too stressed out to get truly restful sleep. You're hungry, but you're nauseous and grossed out by your usual go-to foods. You're wanting to relax, but are just generally (and constantly) uncomfortable with assorted aches and pains.
You're starting to feel overwhelmed by the thought that everything is about to change. You're terrified of childbirth and having racing thoughts about all that could possibly go wrong. You worry about what this new baby will mean for your relationships, your career, and your sense of self. You're grieving the anticipated loss of life as you know it, making it hard to enjoy this unique season. You feel stuck in big feelings and don't know how to find your way out.
We'll cheers our tea from afar because you have put in the work and are ready to graduate from therapy! You'll be on your way with a shiny new set of tried-and-true strategies to create a life you love.
We'll set a goal you're excited about and create a game plan to reach it. During weekly sessions, we'll break up that goal into actionable, do-able baby steps that you can take in your real life between sessions.
During your free virtual consultation, we'll talk logistics of therapy, answer any questions you have about our potential work together, and see if we're a good fit. No pressure or obligation — pinky promise.
