Over the last decade, I've completed two masters degrees in mental health and developmental psychology from New York University & University College of London. I've worked at Mount Sinai Hospital as a child & family psychotherapist, conducted research on marriage and parenting at Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships, run groups Mom groups for Union Square Play, worked in public schools, oh and so much more. Yes, I've been busy.
In fact, my entire career has been dedicated to deepening my understanding of the emotional and psychological changes that accompany parenting. It always looked so challenging, amazing, and complex to me - even before I became a parent myself. So you can only imagine that when my husband and I decided to have our own child, I was totally prepared. Right?
Despite all my "education" and "experience", when I became a parent myself, I felt completely overwhelmed.
