What we’re about

Hello! If you’re an expecting parent, have a new baby, or have small children, we’d love for you to come and check us out.

We’re a group of parents who are here to support and encourage each other.

Way too many parents are feeling isolated, alone, and not sure where to turn. Sometimes it can be lonely, right? So let’s get out of our house, make real connections and feel supported.

The intention of this group is to provide a fun and welcoming environment, where we all feel heard, encouraged and accepted. It’s a place where we’ll be inspired to bring out our best as partners and parents.

We’re a no-judgment zone. We’re not here to judge or compare. Instead, we’re a place to build each other up (not tear each other {or ourselves} down.)

We’ll meet at a kid’s friendly restaurant for lunch and dinner every month. We’ll have a private room, so you can choose to bring your children or not. Whatever you prefer!

We’ll start with a discussion topic (such as communication with our spouse; creating household routines; removing “mommy guilt;” embracing our “new normal;” handling the moods and emotions of parenthood; etc.) But then we’ll always open it up for just casual conversation, so we can ask questions and get to know each other.

As a Marriage and Family Therapist, it’s my passion and purpose to help parents transition into parenthood, keep their relationship strong, and build happy families.  And while I am a therapist, this is not therapy group.  If you want to have a private chat, coaching session, or therapy session, please contact me via

In Addition to this MeetUp Group - Weekly Therapy Group for Moms

I host a regular, private psychotherapy group in Midtown Sacramento separate from meetup. More details here.

If you have questions you can contact me directly or 916-718-9501 

I can’t wait to connect with you! Simply join the group and rsvp for your first meet-up.  

See you soon!
