Six-Week Healthy Mom’s Group

A “healthy” mom is someone who takes care of herself in mind, body and spirit. This looks different for each woman and is based on her values and culture. In this group we will focus on self-care, support and setting healthy boundaries. During the six weeks we will cover topics such as stress management, finding balance, communication and setting limits. The group dynamic is based on the people involved so topics may vary to fit the circumstances of the members. This group is for any mom who is having difficulty “managing” it all, feels overwhelmed or just wants to learn new ways to take care of herself and/or get support from other moms.

Groups are currently offered on Tuesday and Saturday mornings. Groups will consist of 4-6 women and will be 1½ hours in length. Participants will meet individually with me for an orientation session (45 mins in length) to discuss the group in more detail. We will discuss your needs and expectations for the group as well as determine if the group is an appropriate fit for you.

The fee for the Healthy Mom’s Group is $320, which includes the six group sessions and the individual orientation session. This averages out to about $32 an hour.

Call or email your contact information for a free phone consultation or to schedule an individual orientation session.
