8 Session Biweekly Series – Begins September 15
Parenting is as hard as it feels. It takes immense courage to be a parent in this era, and we can ‘should’ ourselves to death. We are all doing the best we can with the resources we have. In this experiential therapeutic group, parents will unearth the roots of some of their shame, guilt, and internalized blame with regards to their parenting. They will also foster empowerment to be their authentic selves, improve self-compassion, emotional presence, and gain a new perspective in their parenting journey. Abigail Esquivel, LCSW, RPT-S, ACS and Kellee Clark, LMFT, RPT will be co-facilitating this group and using attachment theory as a cornerstone for parents to dive deep into their own internal responses in their relationship with their children.
