The transition to parenthood is often filled with a myriad of emotions. It is so important that new parents have a safe place to share the challenges they may face when adjusting to this role. This is a time where you may be receiving advice or feeling pressure from family, friends, as well as societal messages that may not reflect your true values or beliefs. My goal is to help you identify and develop the path that feels right for you. I aim to provide a warm and supportive environment, meeting each new parent where they are on their own individual journey.
