When we become moms, anxiety can be overwhelming and it makes it difficult to enjoy your time with your baby.
When anxiety interferes with your daily functioning, it is time to reach out for help. You may be having scary thoughts, negative self-talk and worries that won’t stop. You are also having a hard time falling asleep or waking up in the middle of the night and having racing thoughts that will not abate.
Having uncontrollable worry and not being able to sleep make it hard to function in your daily life. It can also impact your personal relationships and your ability to work. It is exhausting to continuously worry while also trying to take care of your family and yourself.
When you come to therapy and make yourself a priority it is possible to improve the way you feel about yourself and learn coping skills to regulate persistent thoughts. You will learn how to focus more in the present and not fixate on things you can’t control. When you take better care of yourself, you are then able to take better care of others in your life.
We will use a collaborative approach to identify your specific needs and develop a plan to help attain your goals of decreasing the anxiety you are experiencing.
