Individual Therapy

We offer individual therapy to new parents who want to process their pregnancy journey, delivery, and adjustment to parenting. We use evidence-based strategies to support you in identifying how to regain control of your life and improve your sense of self. 

Couples Counseling

Having a baby changes everything in the home but nothing changes as much as your relationship with your partner. Lack of sleep, lack of intimacy, and different expectations around parenting are all things that can add to conflict between partners. In couples counseling you will learn ways to improve your communication and teamwork as you adjust together to your new roles as parents.
