Becoming a mother is a joyous time, but what if you’re not feeling quite as joyous as you thought.

Adjusting to Motherhood

Adjusting to motherhood is a process and sometimes you may need some time to adjust to your new role. From the change in sleep to the change in routine, many women struggle with this adjustment to motherhood. That’s where Hopeful Beginnings can help. You are not alone! Our experienced counselors and social workers are able to help you make the transition into a happy motherhood. We help with discussing your concerns, providing referrals, and helping with access to needed resources.
How much does it cost?

Our counseling services are free.

Is my session confidential?

Yes. There are a few instances when a counselor may need to disclose information without written consent. Those situations include: to protect the client or public from harm, abuse or neglect of a child, the elderly, or a person with disabilities, or when there is a court order.

How long are my sessions?

Sessions are typically 45 minutes to an hour. During your first appointment, we ask that you allow an hour and a half in order to complete paperwork and an intake.
