The journey to parenthood and postpartum life is full of highs and lows. It is very common for women and partners to experience challenges during this time. 1 in 7 women experience Postpartum Depression (PPD), and 1 in 5 experience Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders (PMADs). Dads and partners experience PPD and PMADs too (about 10%)! The first year after welcoming a new child is a huge transition and life change either way. Maybe you are not feeling like yourself or you feel lost or overwhelmed. Maybe you are having thoughts that are catching you off guard or scaring you. Or you may be noticing changes in your relationships that are concerning to you. Whether you are facing challenges with getting pregnant or during pregnancy, have experienced a loss, or are facing postpartum complications such as postpartum depression or anxiety, postpartum OCD, or other postpartum mood disorders, I am here to help and offer therapy for new parents, as well as expecting parents. As a mom, and professional with specialized training in treating perinatal mental health (PMH-C), I am especially passionate about this work. I offer individual and couples 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 self-paced video learning series for new and expecting parents to feel happier and less stressed after baby.
The course 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 a course to help other parents feel better prepared, or 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 course when it was convenient for you and complete our course in as little as 7 days!
We're here to help take the guess work out of it and guide you with easy to use, trusted, evidenced-based tools to better prepare YOU for baby.
Parent coaching focuses on supporting new parents in managing any initial challenges that may arise in becoming parents. Although becoming a parent comes with many beautiful moments, it can also be a time of fear, insecurity, and challenges in how to parent and co-parent with your partner. In these sessions you will learn skills specific to the transition to parenthood, parenting infants and toddlers, and problem solving specific scenarios that are present in your life to help you feel more equipped as a parent. These sessions can be taken individually or as a couple.
