Postpartum Therapy

Find Your Balance

Parenthood is exhilarating, exhausting, and often overwhelming. Whether it is your first child or your fourth, or your baby is four months or four years, the adjustment to motherhood affects all areas of your life in ways both subtle and profound. We are all "new" parents at every age and stage, and support for your emotional and mental well-being is available every step of the way. 

You are not alone and you deserve to be cared for too!

 

Licensed therapist (and mom) Jennifer Burleson  understands the unique challenges of today's parents, so she founded a therapy practice dedicated to helping mothers regain their equilibrium and momentum, and move through the many stages of parenthood with ease, grace, and joy.
