Therapy for Moms
Therapy for Moms – From Striving & Surviving to Thriving
Integrative Counseling takes a unique approach to therapy for moms. We understand the ups and downs that come with motherhood and the overwhelm that is natural when caring for children while managing a home, personal relationships, and potentially a career or job. You have your own problems, aspirations, hopes, and dreams, but you also have children who depend on you daily.
At times, you may have it all under control. Other times may leave you feeling chaotic, stressed, and even angry or bitter. You’re trying to care for yourself while providing loving care to children and managing personal relationships, so that a wide range of emotions is more than acceptable, it’s natural.
Our mom therapy services are designed to help you stay connected or reconnect with yourself while finding creative ways to express your emotions in healthy ways. When you’re thriving personally, you have the energy, focus, and drive to help your children thrive in their own lives.
Providing excellent care for others always starts with care for self. Self-care starts with time to yourself in therapy.
What is Therapy for Moms?
Therapy for moms is a simple concept. Therapy sessions are designed to help mothers with their unique problems, concerns, and even ambitions. Motherhood is a beautiful thing that comes with trying times. It will take you through some of the most memorable and magical moments of your life only to potentially leave you with some of the most debilitating depression, anxiety, sleep deprivation, and stress overload.
Having a trusted counselor or therapist creates a private, safe space for you to let those emotions out with the benefit of professional feedback and guidance. So many mothers keep their emotions to themselves, but eventually, it comes out in moments of overwhelm that lead to mom guilt. Over time, that guilt builds up and can impact your self-esteem, confidence, and general mental health.
Therapy allows moms to work through issues that they can’t talk about with their children or even their spouses or significant others. That includes the hard emotions and mental health issues as well as the big dreams, careers, goals, and exciting personal aspirations.
Who Needs Therapy for Moms?
Therapy for moms can help all mothers transition from striving to do better and fighting to survive to genuinely thriving in all areas of life.
Maybe you have a growing family and are struggling to make progress toward your personal goals or advance your career. With the time-consuming challenges of motherhood, it often feels like there’s no time left for your personal ambitions. Mom therapy can help you find new ways to balance everything, making yourself a priority along with everyone else’s needs.
Perhaps you’re a new mom feeling guilty because you’re depressed, angry, or otherwise filled with negative emotions at a time everyone expects you to feel happy. It’s difficult to talk to your loved ones about those emotions, but a trained therapist can provide valuable space for emotional release and guidance for managing your mental health.
Even if you don’t think you have serious mental health issues, you can benefit from mom therapy. Spend a bit of time focusing on your own mental health to ensure you’re mentally and emotionally strong and stable for your family.
