Smart Talk Marriage and Family Therapy
Start Feeling Better Today!
I created Smart Talk in 2017 after I had my twins and realized that it would be close to impossible to attend therapy sessions in person. Our group of therapists provides tele-therapy services to new parents in California, Illinois, New York, and Florida. We use a gentle collaborative approach to therapy.

So becoming a parent has been way harder than you thought. Between how long it took to get pregnant, the pregnancy itself, the unexpected complications during delivery, it just seems like you've constantly had to adjust your dreams around what it means to be a parent.
Now that you have your baby, things are still complicated and confusing. You've had to make endless decisions around how to care for your baby from how to feed them to how to support their sleep. Worse of all, everyone seems to have opinions about how you should do things better leaving you feeling like a failure rather than supported.
All of our licensed therapists are mothers themselves meaning that "we have been there". Our approach to therapy is collaborative, supportive, and nonjudgemental. Our job is to support you while you figure out what kind of parent you want to be.
All of our services are telehealth in order to support new parents in adjusting to parenting without having to worry about transporting a baby to an office, shower themselves, or "where to breastfeed". The best way to get in touch with us is via email or phone.
