I thoroughly enjoy working with new or seasoned mothers. Our role as a mother is one of the greatest roles we can play, but it can also be full of stress, anxiety, confusion, guilt, and loneliness. Coaching services can help you navigate these emotions and help you focus on behavior change that support your values as a mother.
Most of the mothers I work with are using EMOTIONS, (either theirs or their child's) as the main measurement of success as a parent. One of the first steps in working with me, is understanding how this method of measuring success can be detrimental, often leading to mental health issues.
I provide a free mental health postpartum assessment after birth. This evaluation will help you decide if counseling or coaching would support your mood and behaviors postpartum. I also work with local perinatal providers, and often make referrals to lactation support, doulas, and body work, (massage, chiropractic, craniosacral). It often takes a team to support a mom who is struggling with physical or mental changes postpartum.
I also spent time assessing your diet/supplement intake. Many postpartum mood issues are a result of nutrient depletion or underlying disturbances in the gut microbiome. It is important to rule this out, before creating a treatment plan. Nutrient deficiencies in postpartum are very common and treatable! Also see the GUT HEALTH tab for more information about how I test for specific pathogens in the digestive track.
If a mother is also interested in incorporating their faith into their role as a parent, I do provide faith-based parent coaching. Click on the PARENTING tab to learn more.
