The journey to parenthood and postpartum life is full of highs and lows. It is very common for moms and dads to experience challenges during this time. The first year after welcoming a new child is a huge transition and life change, but these challenges can continue even as your baby grows. Maybe you are not feeling like yourself, you feel lost or overwhelmed, or you're feeling like you are failing. Maybe you are having thoughts that are catching you off guard, worrying you, or scaring you. Or you may be noticing changes in your relationships that are concerning to you. Often times new parents will tell me that this feels so much harder than they expected and they are unsure why. You are so not alone if you feel any of this and there is nothing wrong with you, you deserve support! Whether you are facing challenges with getting pregnant or during pregnancy, have experienced a loss, or are facing postpartum challenges such as postpartum depression or anxiety, postpartum OCD, trauma, or other postpartum mood disorders, I am here to help. As a mom, postpartum anxiety survivor, and professional with specialized training in treating perinatal mental health (PMH-C), I am especially passionate about this work. I offer individual therapy, and welcome you to bring your newborn to sessions if needed, as I know how difficult it can be to find someone to watch baby. I also offer virtual sessions since I know finding time to leave baby can be difficult.
Thrive After Baby is a resource for new parents to feel more like themselves again after baby and improve their relationships.
Thrive After Baby was created by Sasha (left) and Alex (right). We are 2 moms and therapists, each with over 10 years of experience helping individuals, couples, and families feel happier and more like themselves again. We poured our heart and soul into learning as much as we could from some of the top experts and founders of this field and developed resources and courses to help other parents feel more like themselves again after baby.
You may have read all the baby books (like us) out there. These are great to learn how to care for your baby, but what if instead of reading 10+ books, you were able to watch or listen to our video courses when it was convenient for you and get the support you really need.
We're here to help take the guess work out of it and guide you with easy to use, trusted, evidenced-based tools to feel like yourself again, feel good in your relationship, and feel confident as a new parent.
