Olivia Bergeron, LCSW is a psychotherapist and parent coach who helps parents navigate the huge changes that come with having a child. Whether you're experiencing a sense of overwhelm, stress and anxiety during or after having a baby, or you've run out of ideas about how to manage your toddler's (or big kid's!) tantrums, Olivia works with you to create lasting change. She does this by providing clients with therapy or coaching or a hybrid of both. Olivia is a mom to twins and a singleton, so she understands the demands that come with parenting in New York City. Once her children arrived, Olivia realized that many women and men were not getting the help and support they needed to live in a balanced, joyful way. She heard from parents that becoming a mother or father was unendingly frustrating, difficult and just not the way they had imagined it. "Why didn't anyone tell me it would be this hard?" was a frequently heard refrain. And so, Mommy Groove Therapy & Parent Coaching is dedicated to creating happy, healthy families. Olivia offers help, whether you are seeking to make changes in your life, need to address anxiety/depression, or wish that you had a brighter north star when it comes to parenting. There is no need to go it alone.

I offer counseling and coaching for parents who feel they are falling short in any aspect of their lives. Stress, worry, and sadness can all get in the way of living a balanced, healthy life. If you are experiencing depression or anxiety, or just feel "off," there is help. Often small shifts in attitude and behavior can have a huge impact. Learning how to navigate rough waters means you can be more present for your family, while focusing on what's truly important: connection. When you feel better, the whole family benefits. Reach out today for a free phone consultation. We'll speak about your needs and I'll answer questions about how I help parents like you feel good again. Call or text 917.747.7017.
