Group Therapy for Moms with Babies

Group therapy is an act of self-care, especially if you've been feeling alone on this path. Your group is your place to find your people again.

Group is for you if...

  • You want to better understand yourself
  • You want to build friendships that support & nourish you
  • You want to gain more confidence

Speaking in front of or with people you don’t know may seem daunting, but it's amazing how quickly deep bonds form in these small groups.

What happens in group therapy?

  • Your group will have 5-7 other moms just like you
  • Your group will meet online for an hour every week for 6 consecutive weeks
  • Your weekly sessions will follow a shared group topic of interest

Each session includes time for you to share anything that is on your mind. This is your place to gain support, advice, or simply a listening ear.

what we talk about

Common Group Topics

What is the role of the group therapist?

Your therapists are here to get the conversations started and to keep things on track. You have the reigns to speak about what feels most relevant. You will feel support, validation, and offer one another insights from your own experiences.

Depending on what topic comes up, your therapist may invite you to try out a tool (like a breathing strategy or visualization) or offer useful ways to reframe difficult thoughts.

Why group therapy?

Group therapy is a nourishing act of self-care, especially if you've been feeling alone on this path. We started these groups because so many moms just like you needed a mini community.

Whether you’re the only one of your friends to have a baby, living far from family, missing your co-workers during maternity leave, or feeling the isolating effects of the pandemic, your group is your place to find your people again.
