Parenthood is rarely picture-perfect.  Life is full of pressures to make certain achievements, and raising a family is no exception. Mara Heiman is an experienced psychotherapist and licensed clinical social worker who can help you expand your concept of what it means to become a parent, so you can face whatever challenges this new role throws at you. She wants you to be open to the struggles, because developing as a parent involves so much more than having the picture-perfect family. She loves working with future parents, new parents couples, and even children because she knows the importance of building a strong family unit early on. Whether you’re struggling with infertility, considering egg donation, dealing with postpartum anxieties, navigating your career, or just feeling the need for a little extra coaching to get through pregnancy or the experience of being a new parent, Mara is your woman. She knows that providing support for new mothers and fathers means helping a future child as well. That “village” that is needed to raise a child—moms and dads need one too!
