Marriage and Family Therapists in the News


As mothers, we have many dreams for our children. There is much pressure from society about how to be the perfect mother, and despite the best of intentions, the reality is that the challenges of motherhood can, at times, be overwhelming.

Beginning counseling is a positive step in reducing painful anxiety, depression, addiction, post-traumatic stress disorder, along with a host of other mental health issues that cause us distress.
