Mom and Baby Therapy Group

Weekly ongoing therapy group every Wednesday beginning October 16, 2019  |  Every Wednesday from 11:45am-12:45pm

This is a weekly ongoing therapy group every Wednesday beginning October 16. Minimal commitment of 6 weeks. Open to new participants at the end of every cycle of a slot opens up. Members welcome to continue in the group beyond the 6 weeks.

What is it all about?
This group is a place for moms to come with baby in tow and talk about the journey into motherhood as well as the frequent isolation and sense of disconnection from one’s prior self. It is a safe place to connect to other new moms while learning to re-connect to one’s prior self. It is a place to be real about motherhood. To come with spit up in your hair, and pjs if you need to.

Each week we will have a topic of discussion such as: parent-child attachment, infant sleep, breast or bottle feeding and solid food, social and romantic relationships, identity shifts, work/life balance, self care as well as other gems. Every group will begin with a half hour didactic component where we’ll learn the nuts and bolts about the week’s topic, followed by an open discussion facilitated by our perinatal and maternal mental health psychologist, Dr Tanya Cotler.

Can I bring baby?
Of course!! This group is specifically designed for you and your baby. Think typical mom/baby music class or play class but this one is facilitated by a mindful parenting and attachment psychologist who specializes in both adult work as a maternal mental health psychologist, as well as is a child psychologist with a focus on the 0-3 years (Dr Tanya Cotler).

Cost: 70$/session or $420/6 weeks
Weekly meeting time: 11:45am-12:45pm
REGISTRATION: Dr. Tanya Cotler, Clinical Psychologist T: (647) 502 8262 or register by email at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). Space is limited.
