Join Valerie and fellow therapist and perinatal specialist Heidi McBain in a conversation about the work that Heidi does in helping women from conception through the postpartum period. This period can include miscarriage, heightened anxiety, depression, and support around the multitude of challenges that come with a transition into motherhood.
Join Valerie in this follow up conversation with former client Becca, who shared her journey through postpartum depression and other young motherhood struggles (see last episode) in this follow up conversation a few years after terminating therapy. Becca shares long term benefits of working closely with a therapist in transitioning into motherhood.
Join Valerie and her guest expert and attachment therapist Rene as they dig into the nitty gritty of parenting littles. Rene specifically addresses the challenges that it is for adoptive parents to parent adoptive children who bring with them a “suitcase” filled with their untold (and untellable) stories. These “suitcases” sometimes clash with the parents own suitcases (histories, struggles, insecurities, relational traumas) and make parenting feel somewhat daunting. PS this does not just happen in adoptive parent/child relationships!
