“As children develop, their brains "mirror" their parent's brain. In other words, the parent's own growth and development, or lack of those, impact the child's brain. As parents become more aware and emotionally healthy, their children reap the rewards and move toward health as well.”
― Daniel J. Siegel
The Challenge of Parenting
Parenting is HARD. I think we can all agree on that. However, despite knowing this there is still so much societal pressure to be the "perfect" parent, to not need support, and to do things the "right" way. These pressures can lead to feelings of helplessness, stress, and disconnection from not only your children and family, but from yourself. And it doesn't need to be that way. I am here to support you through every aspect of parenting: the challenges, the joys, and everything in-between.
Coming Back to You
When we decide to have a family and become a parent, there comes a lot of self-sacrifice. Our lives are no longer only ours, but the lives of our children depend on us. I am here to encourage that you and your needs as a parent belong in this relationship too. In fact, it is extremely hard to take care of others without being able to take care of ourselves. We will get burnt out, resentful, and defeated. In our parent support sessions, we prioritize you and your family equally, so we can explore what it is that YOU need to feel good about being a parent and a family. You deserve to have a space to be heard, felt, and put first.
