Denver New Parent Counseling
Are you new parents discovering that parenting is not what you expected? Are you and your spouse having a hard time adjusting and wondering if your relationship is headed for trouble? Do you feel overwhelmed as a parent?
Having a baby can be one of the most joyful experiences in a person’s life. But what happens when everything isn’t so perfect? We know that the days and nights with a new baby can feel like a roller coaster – one moment full of happiness, the next overwhelming and very challenging.
The challenging realities of becoming new parents
Many new parents may feel overwhelmed, sad, or anxious. If becoming a parent is more challenging than you expected, talking with a trained therapist about your feelings can be helpful.
Whether you’re a new mom who’s feeling normal “baby blues,” someone who wonders if you might have postpartum depression, or a couple trying to manage the stress of caring for an infant, we can help.
We provide a supportive and non-judgmental place for you to express your feelings, identify coping skills, and manage stress.
Remember: Happy parents make a happy and healthy baby.
You don’t want to wait to get support until your child starts to struggle, or your marriage is in danger.
