The childbearing years can be a time filled with confusion, guilt, shame, sadness, anger, and worry. These emotional layers are often difficult to recognize or change; sometimes causing trouble within oneself or within the family.
At Concord Therapy, the therapeutic relationship is a collaborative one, empowering individuals to recover and sustain a healthy sense of self and well-being after the major life changes of child loss, child bearing, and child rearing.
Counseling may include assistance in identifying the cause of the problem, creating tools for coping, and developing a short and long-term plan for recovery. Please note that Concord Therapy welcomes all families in regards to race, ethnicity, spirituality, sexuality, and gender spectrum.
