Prenatal and Postpartum Counselling in Bolton and Ontario
Prenatal and postpartum counselling for parents struggling with anxiety, depression, identity shifts, relationship challenges and parenting struggles.
Areas of Expertise
The transition into parenthood can be chaotic and intense. When my daughter was born I struggled with issues many new parents face, including sleep deprivation and the sudden shift in identity. Issues with breastfeeding and fussiness/colic can exacerbate this stress. Unfortunately, these difficulties aren’t normalized and spoken about enough. This inspired me to obtain additional training in prenatal and postpartum mental health so that I could better assist parents facing these challenges.
Postpartum depression, anxiety and stress can feel overwhelming and scary. It is important for you to know that postpartum mood disorders (PPMD), like postpartum depression or anxiety, are all treatable. Whether you’re suffering from a mood disorder or dealing with the natural challenges that parenthood brings, therapy can help you to manage tensions in relationships, improve mood and anxiety, and help you to feel like yourself again.
Parenthood can also bring to light old wounds related to childhood experiences and upbringing. I help my clients to deepen their understanding of these experiences, heal from trauma, and shift unhelpful beliefs and patterns.
I am passionate about helping parents discover the resources they already possess and I strongly believe in having real conversations about motherhood/parenthood that empower, inspire and normalize this rocky transition.
