The Parenting with Littles Group is a great fit for mothers of young kids who no longer consider themselves postpartum. This is a therapy group for women looking for support as they enter into the next phase of motherhood. This will allow you to learn more as your parenting skills grow with your child in a supportive, therapeutic environment. 

I want to create a community where we support each other, process our struggles, and learn together to have a wonderful relationship with our children and support their social-emotional development.

Parenting is tough. Parenting often stirs up our areas of struggle as we do our best to support our children. Our kiddos are rapidly changing, and so are their needs. Work-life balance is such a challenge in America, in particular. We can feel frustrated and insecure with the pressures we are under as parents, both societal and self-imposed. All parents would benefit from a place to process their experiences, brainstorm solutions to struggles and challenges, have a place to feel connected with other parents, celebrate their good days, and feel less alone on the hard days.


Group therapy is a modality that offers unique growth opportunities. We can:

  • Hear different perspectives and experiences from group members
  • Have feelings validated by other group members who are also struggling can help you feel less alone
  • Learn about other difficulties ahead of time as other topics may be brought up that you are currently not struggling with but can now feel more prepared to handle
  • Be able to laugh and cry with a group can be more powerful as members are simultaneously in the role of giving and receiving support.
  • Learn more about yourself and your relationships and how to communicate. Group can be a safe practice space for clients to speak up and advocate for their needs.

Here are a few topics that will be addressed in the parenting group:

  • Figuring out your parenting philosophy
  • Supporting sleep issues
  • Understanding behavior and ways to set boundaries
  • Emotion coaching skills 
  • Building strong attachment through attunement
  • Facilitating resiliency by building coping skills 
  • Creating strong sibling bonds
  • Maintaining a strong co-parenting relationship
  • Understanding parenting anxiety and stressors
  • Anticipating upcoming changes for our children and ways to support them
  • Learn about societal and familial impacts on our experiences as parents

While individual therapy can be helpful when struggling with parenting, cost and schedule can be obstacles. This is why we designed our group to be drop-in and donation-based. We want clients to be able to attend regardless of finances or scheduling difficulties. You may attend the group when your schedule allows. Regular attendance is helpful, but having a place to check in with a therapist, feel supported, and receive guidance when needed is also essential. Many of our clients in the group may already have an individual therapist but want group support for this transition. Research indicates that individual and group support has benefits. 

The group will meet virtually every 3rd Wednesday of the month at 2:00 pm starting on Wednesday, Apr 17, 2024. Call or text 720.675.7123 to sign up and get the link. The group is a suggested donation of $20. All donations go to the Ardent Grove Foundation, our sister non-profit mental health clinic, which provides high-quality, low-fee therapy services to the community. No one will be turned away for the inability to donate.
