WORDS TO LIVE BY:

“We come into being parents with a lot of experience in other areas of life. Parenthood may be new, but you bring a lot of experience from life—humor, warmth, and love. As a new mom, you need to be reminded of whom you were before and who you still are.”

ABOUT Evelyn:

Even before you start trying to have a child, when you just have that spark of an idea that you want to have one, you’ve already started shifting your identity and your relationship with your partner. Building a family is truly life-changing, and it will impact your roles as a woman, partner, daughter, sister, etc. Evelyn Coleman Gama, a therapist who has specialized in working with families for the past 5 years, understand how important it is for women and couples to have support when they are taking on new roles as parents. She believes that every family is a system, and for the whole system to be healthy, each member of the family needs to be healthy, nurtured, and connected. Evelyn loves working with families as they are just starting to grow, helping then to navigate the transition and maintain their sense of self in their new roles; as a mom of a preemie, she also specializes in helping parents through time in the NICU with the transition home. She uses a strength-based perspective that starts with the strengths a family already has and helps then utilize their strengths to grow and thrive. Relationships are the most important thing that we have, and Evelyn will help you strengthen yours to help you find your new normal.
