Right: That's me the year I started my private practice. Creating a child and a private practice in the same year was daunting, to say the least. Since then I've added one other kiddo and many years of experience of being a Therapist Mom.
This, I feel, is a title in and of itself: the Therapist Mom. So much about my practice changed when I became a mother. Suddenly I was approaching clients through a different lens, with different responses I needed to understand and work through. My boundaries and time needs shifted as I negotiated my new identity of therapist and mother.
Being a therapist mom faces us with new questions... How do we care for our clients, ourselves, our children, and our partners without suffering compassion fatigue? How do we understand when a client suddenly begins "no showing" now that a large belly shares the room? How do we find rejuvenation and support through the personal and professional changes of having a child?
I needed a mom support group, but I needed case consultation, help understanding my role as therapist, caretaker, wife... the works. Now, I provide that for other moms to support you in your journey.
