If you’ve been searching for a place where your anger isn’t judged, or viewed as not motherly, or drives people away, you’ve found it. Deep breath. We get you here.
This is your safe harbor for now. I know how scary life can feel when your anger has taken over. When everything sets you off. When you so frequently feel ashamed and guilty. When you have tried everything to “control” your anger and nothing has worked. When it’s making you question who you are and if you’re cut out for motherhood. But let’s put that all to rest for now: it hasn’t worked because you were looking at your anger as something to be conquered rather than listened to. And you are a wonderful mother.
Let’s get you the support and understanding you need. Breathe in. Breathe out. You’re in the right place.

I will never forget the day I had my first scary thought about my baby. My daughter, the youngest of my three children, was about 8 weeks old. She was born with a tongue and lip tie, and we’d recently had it revised, so we were following up with a pediatric...read more
A good friend (who is also a mom and therapist) recently texted me asking what I thought of the depiction of motherhood in the book “The Giving Tree.” I hadn’t read it since I was a kid, so I didn’t remember any details and couldn’t give her a real answer. But I was...read more
My journey through postpartum anxiety and rage was a long and twisty one, as most women’s recoveries are. There were lots of starts and stops, things that seemed to be working and then didn’t, things I tried multiple times before they stuck, and many times I thought...read more
