Postpartum Therapy

Find Your Balance

Pregnancy and new parenthood are exhilarating, exhausting and often overwhelming. Like most parents, you may be experiencing stress and upheaval as your new baby joins the family. 

Whether it is your first child or your fourth, welcoming a new baby requires changes in routine, affects relationships and can create emotional or mental distress.

 

Licensed therapist (and mom) Jennifer Burleson  understands those challenges so she founded a therapy practice dedicated to helping new and expecting parents regain their equilibrium and momentum on their parenting journey.
