Join other first time moms in this new group opportunity for support and connection. Becoming a mother is fully transformative yet it can also be stressful and isolating. This group provides a break from that isolation and stress in a comfortable, non-judgmental, safe space. We will discuss all relevant issues that arise from going through the incredible transformation into motherhood. Join us as a way to build community with those who deeply understand what you are you experiencing.


This 4-session weekly group will be facilitated by Stephanie St. John Olear, MHC-LP, a mental health counselor who was once a new mom herself. Mothers and their babies (newborn to under a year old) are invited to join.
