Therapy for Moms with Burnout and Stress
You haven’t slept for more than two hours in months. Honestly, maybe years at this point.
Perhaps, you haven’t showered in days.
Just the idea of washing your hair feels too heavy, so you skip it.
The to-do list is never-ending and even thinking about it makes your heart beat a little faster.
However, you just can’t bring yourself to clean out the closet or fold another load of clothes and everything is piling up.
You’re starting to resent your family. You don’t enjoy spending time with your kids or your partner and you feel everyone just wants something from you. In fact, your husband is going on golf trips, plays video games, and you’re still cleaning up, doing dishes, bathtime, bedtime, and planning for tomorrow. You’re on the clock 24/7 while he gets praise for changing a diaper. Once. Three weeks ago. It’s not that you don’t love him (or he doesn’t love you), it’s that you need help and he’s not seeing it.
EVERYTHING feels like work and you’re FAILING at your job. Maybe you’re also working from home or trying to fit your career into this new life. It feels like you’re behind on emails, and you feel weird around your coworkers who are picking up the slack. Ultimately, you also feel guilty that you just don’t have the headspace for yet another zoom meeting right now.
You honestly just need a break. I get it. Being a working woman and a mother is both difficult and rewarding. However, as your online therapist in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C., I am here to help you find some work-life harmony.

Online Therapy Can Help You Work Through Mom Burnout!
The mommy blogs, friends, and family are telling you that this is normal. This is what it’s like to be a mother! “Wash up” with some baby wipes and get on with it! That’s not normal. It’s not supposed to be that hard and suffering isn’t supposed to be the price you pay to be a mom.
Thinking you only deserve a shower when your kids are out of the house isn’t in line with how hard you work: for yourself, your partner, and your family. The mom groups, the blogs, the social media posts normalizing the hard times get one thing wrong – you’re allowed to be happy, well-rested, and content with the life you’ve worked so hard on. Therapy for moms in Washington, D.C., Virginia, or Maryland can help you get past the dark times, the hard parts, the times when you just feel like a blank slate.
Managing Motherhood is here with a different message. Being a good mother doesn’t have to mean running yourself ragged and giving up a part of yourself. In fact, honoring your needs teaches your kids to do the same.
Let me help you learn to prioritize your well-being, set healthy boundaries, and communicate your needs effectively to those around you. You will learn coping skills to reverse burnout and restore peace in your life.
Motherhood is hard, but it doesn’t have to break you or steal you of your joy.
My approach to Online Therapy in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C.
My approach to therapy is person-centered and solution-focused. We will take time to understand the roots of your stress and overwhelm. At the beginning of online therapy, we will address the issue that is causing the most stress. We’ll talk about any physical symptoms of stress such as headaches, muscle aches, or panic attacks. I will help you to work through healthy coping mechanisms. I tend to take a holistic approach to address issues like sleep, self-care, and family support- factors that may impact your mental health.
