Therapy for Mom Stress, Burnout, and Rage

Your Mental Health Matters

Many moms are overworked and undersupported

You are juggling a lot.

Being a mom is hard no matter what season you are in.

It might feel like there are not enough hours in the day to get everything done - and to be honest, there might not be enough hours to do everything you need to do. Whether you work at home, or outside of the home, you are likely feeling the time pressure.

You love your children so much, and of course, you want them to experience the best life has to offer. So you push yourself.

Is it possible this comes at the expense of your well-being?

To make matters even worse, many moms do not have equal partnerships regarding the mental load, parenting duties, and domestic duties.

And you are doing this in a society with ingrained scripts about what it means to be a mom. When you do not measure up, you feel like a failure, and you might be very hard on yourself because of it.

Moms are feeling this stress and pressure.

And it is impacting mental health. No wonder many moms are overwhelmed with the stress and are burning out, experiencing anger and guilt, and feeling unappreciated, unsupported, and unprepared. You might internalize this struggle, beat yourself up, and feel like a failure.

You likely know you need self-care, but are unsure of how to fit it in. So it is easy to keep it at the bottom of the priority list.

All of this means you might be impatient, quicker to anger, distracted, and disengaged. And again, you might beat yourself up for this.

I need you are not a bad mom.

You are a good mom having a hard time struggling with the stressors and pressures that you are facing.

You do not need to struggle through this alone. We can find ways to make motherhood and life more manageable, and maybe, find some enjoyment in life.

It is time to take care of yourself!

I know with everything on your plate, fitting therapy in possibility feels impossible AND your mental health is important. You deserve to take care of yourself!

Virtual therapy makes attending therapy more of attainable. Instead of booking off several hours of your time to drive to and from and deal with parking, simply make space for 1 hour and then find a private space at home, at work, or in your car.

I work with Moms because I get it

I know the stress and pressure firsthand because I am a mom too. We all have different stories, struggles, and resources, but I want you to know you are not alone.

Since becoming a mom in 2017, I have devoted a large part of my practice to working with moms. I have completed extensive training in perinatal and maternal mental health.

You are not an angry mom or a bad mom. You are a good mom who is tired, overworked, and undersupported
