Support for New, Expecting, and Hopeful Parents
Deciding When to Have a Baby
“Are we ready to start building a family?” “When is the right time to have a baby?” “I want kids, but my husband doesn’t,” or “I want another baby, but my wife doesn’t.” Common questions — complex answers.
Many couples seek out couples counseling because they become gridlocked over the mother of all questions: if or when to have a baby. Others are faced with unplanned parenthood and need to make a major life decision — fast.
Our experienced, unbiased marriage counselors can help you create alignment in your relationship and make thoughtful choices together when building a family.
Coping With Infertility
A compassionate infertility therapist can create a safe and non-judgmental space for you to process complex feelings, get support for your mental and emotional wellbeing, and maintain your strong relationship as a couple.
Healing After Pregnancy Loss
Miscarriage, pregnancy loss, and infant loss are common experiences but not often discussed openly — leading many people to feel alone in this unique and complex grief.
Evidence-based, emotionally focused therapy for pregnancy loss can help you work through feelings of grief, reclaim power and strength, and reconnect with hope for the future.
Manage Postpartum Depression and Anxiety
Building a family and having a new baby is a joyful, meaningful experience — and a complex one, emotionally.
Perinatal and postpartum depression and anxiety impact many women and men, taking a toll on mental health and relationships. Couples with complicated pregnancies or birth experiences may need extra support.
Marriage after Baby
Positive, evidence-based couples counseling or relationship coaching can help you reconnect emotionally and sexually, communicate effectively, build a supportive, equitable partnership, co-create positive parenting strategies, and help each other grow into this new phase of life and love.
Build a Strong Family
Babies and small children don’t come with an instruction manual. Yet we all carry “parenting playbooks” forged by our experiences in our family of origin.
In addition to providing you with practical tips for new parents, evidence-based marriage counseling helps families understand each other’s values, parenting styles, and expectations so they can work toward a shared vision for a strong, healthy family — together.
