Becoming a parent is an experience unlike any other. When a baby is born, a mother is born. A mental world that forms a new identity is created. We believe in the importance of being supported while going through this transition.
For most people, parenthood can be a time of great enjoyment, but also feel challenging and difficult. Giving yourself time and space is important to help yourself and your child develop and connect.
In our gentle approach, we're not attempting to "fix" or quickly resolve you or the challenges you might be experiencing. We believe in the power of human connection and creation. By working together, looking at patterns of our past and finding inner strength we believe we can create meaningful and long-lasting change.
By offering a non-judgmental and supportive space we strive to offer caregivers a chance to connect with themselves and others to find meaning and connection during this challenging time of their life.
