Couples Therapy

Many couples experience increased tension and difficulty connecting after becoming parents. In the first two years after having a baby, two thirds of couples report a decline in relationship satisfaction. Whether you are experiencing a resurfacing of long-held conflicts and issues, or a change in interactions as you adjust to a baby, this can be an important time to strengthen your relationship. The transition to parenthood is an excellent opportunity to make changes before they become long term patterns and to learn new ways of communicating and connecting that result in more satisfying relationships.

Postpartum Depression Therapy Group

The postpartum period can be a complex time characterized by a wide range of emotions. Women experiencing difficulties postpartum often report feeling anxious, overwhelmed, exhausted, tearful, and irritable. Postpartum depression is the number one complication of childbirth and affects 10-15% of women in the first year after the birth of a child. This treatment group offers an opportunity for women who are experiencing postpartum depression or anxiety to connect with others who are having similar feelings and experiences, to gain support in coping with these feelings, and to learn tools to reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety. Often through support and connection we are able to approach mothering with revived energy. Whether you’re experiencing postpartum depression or anxiety, or are simply having a harder time emotionally than you expected, this group can be a supportive and helpful resource.
