Therapy for Moms in Suffolk County, Long Island, NY
Being a new mom is “supposed” to be the happiest time of your life — or so everyone says.
For some moms, being a new parent isn’t the happiest time in your life. You aren’t alone — 80% of moms have felt the way you do. You see your friends posting all their positive moments on social media, but it’s likely that they are also hiding some negative and inadequate feelings. You aren’t a “bad mom” if you have some ambivalent thoughts about your new life. It’s okay if right now you don’t love (or even like) being a mom.
It’s okay if you aren’t perfect
By the time you've found me, you've probably spent countless sleepless nights googling “how to be a good mom” and “how to connect with my baby who cries all the time”. Most moms find that this transition isn’t as easy as all of the other changes you’ve had in your life. Your family may not know how best to support you right now.
Whether you are feeling “baby blues” or worried about postpartum depression, I’m Katy, and I’m here to help. I want you to feel connected to your baby and be able to smile when you hold them. I can help you work towards figuring out who you are now that you have someone who needs you.
