Motherhood Didn't Turn Out How You Imagined!

You heard about motherhood being hard,

but you didn’t know it was going to be this hard.

but deep down inside you are confused and scared.

You tried to "wait it out," but you're now wondering if you'll ever feel like yourself again.

You can't stop comparing yourself to other mothers.

You adore your baby and only want the best for your family. 

So, why are you so unhappy?  

You’ve come to the right place.

FREQUENTLY 

ASKED QUESTIONS

ABOUT OUR

COUNSELING SERVICES

Do you have evening & weekend appointments available?

 

Yes!  We are open everyday.  Our evening and weekend appointments are very popular and tend to fill up quickly.

How long will it take for me to feel better?

 

On average, our clients meet with us for 8-12 sessions.  We consider ourselves short-term therapists, so we want to give you what you need and get you on your way. 

What do I need to do before my first appointment?

 

Other than completing intake paperwork, there’s no need to prepare anything for your first therapy session if you don’t feel like it.  Most people will experience a few awkward stumbling blocks or silences in therapy - it’s all part of the journey. The likelihood is there’s no level of awkwardness your therapist hasn’t already encountered.  Aside from seeing new clients all the time, your therapist will have had hours of therapy themselves and understand how it feels to be on the other side. 

Do you meet with couples?

 

Yes we do!  We take a holistic approach, which usually means involving those who are closest to you. Your partner can come for 1 session or every session; it’s completely up to you.

Do you take insurance?

We tailor our counseling services to the needs to each unique mother and/or couple that works with us.  We would not be able to individualize our approach if we accepted health insurance because managed care companies dictate the type of therapy provided to you, in addition to regulating the number of sessions you are allocated.

Our counseling approaches are extremely effective.  You will immediately find relief and support, beginning at your first appointment.

 

We are happy to provide you with the documentation that you will need to submit an out-of-network reimbursement claim to your health insurance company.
