Sound Healing Tools for Connecting

The magical power of Sound and Music has been used as a healing modality since ancient times. This ancient science is making a comeback and is now backed by research into its healing benefits. Sound can help you relax, find balance, heal, remove energetic blocks, connect you to source, and more! And the best thing about it – is that its simple, and accessible to anyone.

During this session we will journey into the world of sound and learn how sound can create subtle but profound positive changes in our bodies – including stress release and relaxation. Sound can also be used to create a beautiful connection between you and your baby, and other family members. Often its not our words that connect us, but a vibration that comes from our hearts. Different techniques will be shared and experienced that you can do on your own to assist in your own healing and transformation. As we fine tune ourselves, we begin living in harmony with the universe. The presentation also includes a magnificent healing sound bath at the end!

Your Marriage after Baby

About 60-75% of mothers who seek mental health counseling for perinatal mood and anxiety disorders have a relationship component or root cause related to their symptoms and recovery. We aim to normalize and validate the real struggle in adjusting marriage and partner relationships when baby makes three, and provide clear and realistic strategies for keeping the health of your relationship at the heart of your postpartum plan. Both partners are highly encouraged to attend and both partners will hear non-judgmental solutions that will help them grow as individuals and as a couple/family. Primary prevention and/or early intervention are always the goals for rapid recovery!
