Parenting

Motherhood can be the most rewarding but exhausting job in the world! If you find yourself feeling overwhelmed and guilty, you aren’t alone. Our therapists can help you stop playing the comparison game and enjoy parenting more. The modern mother has countless expectations from her children, partner, society, work and herself. As pediatrician Dr. Harvey Karp said, “No woman has ever had to do as much on her own, as the modern mother. We don’t have the same family structure or the same neighborhood structure anymore…It’s really hard, and every woman needs to give herself a break.”

Whether you are a working mom, a stay-at-home mom or somewhere in-between, it can often feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day. Between managing work and home many mothers find it difficult to find time to take care of themselves. Some women struggle with letting go of the unrealistic expectations they have for themselves (thanks Pinterest and social media!) They find themselves focused on the things they “should” be doing instead of prioritizing the things that bring them joy.
Motherhood can feel isolating at times even if you are never alone! Many moms struggle with “mom guilt” and negative thoughts that they are a “bad mom.” In reality, there are many ways to be a great mom! Working with a therapist can help you focus on your strengths as a mother, build your confidence in parenting and become the type of mom you envision.
Our therapists understand the importance of seeking balance, building your support system and carving out time to do the things that “fill your cup.” If you are feeling burned out, overwhelmed or anxious, counseling can help you decrease your stress and enjoy motherhood more!
