No one likes feeling guilty. It’s just not a happy place to be. Yet somehow mothers seem to be riddled with what is called “mom guilt” all the time. We sacrifice so much for our children, but despite that, we still feel like we’re not doing enough. For some, they feel guilty for not being able to take care of their children because they’re working, and for others, they long to be out in the workforce because they feel they’re homebound with their kids too much. Either way, it’s a difficult conundrum to grapple with all the time.
On this episode, I am joined by Dr. Terri Bacow, PhD, who is a clinical psychologist on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. She has deep expertise in using skills-based therapies to treat anxiety, depression, and related disorders, including postpartum depression and anxiety. Dr. Bacow is dedicated to empowering each client with the concrete, sustainable coping skills to better manage overwhelming thoughts and emotions. She especially enjoys working with young adults (including college students) and parents, including moms and dads adjusting to new parenting or interested in parent coaching. Ready to shed the mom guilt, and hone in on your greatest, most powerful self? Let’s do this!
