I'm so glad you are here

Deciding to seek help in our motherhood can be a scary thing to do (because people can be so damn judgy), and it takes incredible courage to even consider therapy. 


You could power through the rollercoaster of emotions, wrestle with your shifting identity, and juggle your unmet needs while tending to a tiny human and holding down the fort.

You could continue to question and doubt, wondering if your experience is "normal" or if something's "wrong" with you, and whether or not you should seek postpartum therapy.

You may question your experiences, sweep them under the rug, or consider them not normal because they don't match up with what you see portrayed in the media or on social media.

And when you do reach out for support, you might feel misunderstood by your husband, your family, and even your mom friends (gasp* I know ).

But here's the thing: most mothers don't even know that what they're experiencing is Matrescence.

get started

let's be real.

you are a
driven, ambitious woman

You thrive on setting goals and exceeding expectations, driven by a relentless pursuit of success. 

It's time to break free from the fucking cycle of striving and exhaustion. Matrescence is not a destination to reach or a box to check off on your journey through life.

In motherhood, the stakes feel even higher. You want to get it right, to be the perfect mother, partner, and professional.

As a woman of color, this pressure is even more pronounced.

Society expects you to excel, to surpass expectations, to prove yourself again and again. It's exhausting, trying to meet these unrealistic standards while also juggling the demands of motherhood and life.

You yearn for ease, to be seen, to be heard, and validated. 

You've tried it all – meditation apps, journaling, taking "breaks" – but nothing seems to provide the relief you so desperately crave. Instead, you find yourself restless, tense, and overwhelmed by the weight of this transformation.

But let's also acknowledge the pressure you put on yourself.

What's perinatal therapy like?

What it isn't:

Therapy isn't about quick fixes or instant transformation, especially for moms navigating Matrescence. It's not a magical cure-all that erases all struggles at once. Instead, it's a gradual journey of unraveling, akin to peeling back layers of an onion. Healing takes time and effort; there are no Band-Aid solutions. It's about embracing the messiness, allowing space for exploration, and growing at your own pace.

What it is:

Therapy is like finally giving yourself permission to prioritize your own well-being amidst the chaos of motherhood. It's an empowering journey of self-discovery and growth. It's about investing in yourself and committing to deep, meaningful change. Each therapy session becomes a sacred space where you can explore, heal, and evolve, supported by a therapist who truly understands your journey. 

Enough of this! Aren't you tired of just surviving, and trying to get back to the old you?

There's this rhetoric out there that can be downright infuriating to hear, and it's this persistent notion of "getting back to the old you", you know, to "snap back".

It's as if mothers have been sold this elusive dream that they can somehow return to who they were before children, as if becoming a mother wasn't a monumental evolution of self.

This unhelpful belief suggests that who you are now, as a mother, is somehow inadequate. It whispers that there's something inherently wrong with the person you're becoming.

The truth is – you won't go back to her; the old you.

You're on an extraordinary journey of evolution, where every experience, every triumph, every stumble, shapes the woman you're becoming.

Matrescence isn't about erasing who you were or who you are now; it's about embracing the messy, imperfect, breathtakingly beautiful journey of transformation.

It's about stepping into the most authentic, empowered version of yourself – fierce, resilient, and unapologetically you.

Yes, I want this



To explore and redefine your identity beyond the roles of mother, partner, and professional.


To address any unresolved emotions or traumas from your own childhood that may be impacting your experience of motherhood.


To prioritize self-care and carve out time for your own needs and well-being amidst the demands of life.


To navigate the challenges of becoming and being a mother with greater resilience and confidence.

then, therapy with me, is for you.

I get it, Mama. I have been there too.

why I can help

You'll wonder if I can help you, and yes, I can. I not only have the letters behind my name to prove it, but the experience of Matrescence myself to empathize with you. 

If you're willing to open up, to be vulnerable and raw, I'll be here to walk alongside you.

Together, we'll unravel the layers of your emotions, uncovering the root causes of your struggles and finding clarity and healing along the way.

You are worth so much more than just getting by. You deserve to feel whole, to embrace all parts of yourself, even the messy, complicated ones.

And with support, understanding, and guidance, you can step into your power and reclaim your sense of self.

why now?

You're ready for things to change

Before therapy, you may have felt lost in the whirlwind of motherhood, unsure of who you are beyond "Mom".

You may have struggled to prioritize your own needs and desires, feeling guilty for taking time for yourself amidst the demands of life. You may have experienced feelings of overwhelm, anxiety, or sadness, wondering if this is all there is to motherhood.

After therapy, you will find a newfound sense of clarity and empowerment.

 You will have gained insight that allows you to navigate motherhood with greater confidence and authenticity.

You'll have developed practical strategies for managing stress and setting boundaries, enabling you to carve out time for self-care without guilt. With a deeper understanding of yourself and your experiences, you'll feel more grounded, resilient, and fulfilled in your role as a mother, and your experience as a woman.
