“A tremendous support and resource…”
Robyn's PPD therapy group was a tremendous support and resource for me through the transitional time of early motherhood. Being part of a group of other women facing similar challenges inherent to motherhood that, in my opinion, are not talked about openly enough, helped normalize my own experiences of postpartum depression and anxiety, exhaustion, identity changes, relationship challenges, co-parenting struggles, etc... Robyn is a skilled and empathetic facilitator, and I would recommend this group to any mother who is struggling and feeling isolated in her experience of motherhood - for me, it was a great relief to find that I was far from alone in my own experience.
“This group was a lifeline…”
This group was a lifeline for me during a really difficult time. I felt really heard by Robyn and the mamas in the group and not alone in my feelings. I can't recommend Robyn's group highly enough. Meeting weekly and hearing that other mamas were struggling and getting through it, was so helpful.
It was hard to reach out, I was struggling and I didn't want to be, no mom wants to be. I finally got in touch with Robyn and started working with her and things began to change. I felt like someone heard me and listened without judging me as a mom. After some time working with her, I started to feel more entitled to ask for what I needed and think about myself a little more again. She really helped me.
“(H)elped us decrease resentment and increase intimacy.”
We went to see Robyn 10 months after our first child was born. We had been really struggling with communication and intimacy, since before our baby came, but it got worse with lack of sleep. Robyn helped us tremendously. We learned how to really listen to each other and when we do have conflict we now have skills to get through it. Robyn also helped us decrease resentment and increase intimacy, helping us prioritize time together, for our marriage.
“…feeling happier in my life”
I struggle with depression and anxiety and it wasn’t easy to find a therapist who understood me. Robyn helped me stabilize my symptoms through a combination of building practical skills and processing some difficult life events. Our work has become a crucial part of my maintaining that stability and feeling happier in my life.
