R.E.P (Resiliently Enduring Postpartum) Support Group
November 3 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am
We are looking for adults in the first years of parenting who find themselves in need of: support, community, resources, and assistance in their navigation of this new phase of life. Some struggling in the first year of their child’s life may be diagnosed with Postpartum Depression or Postpartum Anxiety. Time phase of life poses struggles for any gender parent/grandparent of biological/adoptive/foster children in their first years of life. Scientific studies have shown that inclusion of group therapy in their mental health support increases their outcomes and healing. Many others struggle with the isolation of similar issues and are also in need of support. No matter which of these you are, this is a space for you. We are starting a Connection Support group for new parents of all kinds. Let’s work together to help you work through this phase of life and discover where your parenting path is leading you; with your head held high, and tools in your metaphorical tool belt to handle this parenting road, and find a place of peace.

If you are interested in an online only (telehealth) group, please contact me so I get get you on the list for when that starts up. When the list has enough interested people I will speak with them for coordinating timing.
If finding childcare for this meeting is a hardship for you, rest easy. Children are welcome, we will have shade for all attending. If you would like to learn more about the Arilda Surridge LMFT (she/her) and Laural Casal AAC (she/her) who are leading this group, please go to www.wellnesscounselinginc.com.
This group is open to all parents in need. Should you be experiencing an increased level of need, such as being diagnosed or needing to be diagnosed for Postpartum Psychosis, this group can serve you as a wonderful addition to your mental health support. That said, this group alone would not support all of your mental health needs, and if you need help finding these resources, please reach out so we can help you find healing.
