The transition to parenthood is an amazing journey that comes with a host of rewarding and yet challenging life lessons. So often I work with parents that not only need to get their family sleeping through the night, but that need support to help in this life transition. I am a firm believer that reaching out, asking for support can only be beneficial and aid in the growth of who we are and what we can bring to our parenting. So often I hear parents tell me that they live far away from family. My advise is always, build yourself a "Dream Team". Create a safe and nurturing environment for yourself to get the care and support you need and deserve. The care you give to yourself can only be positive and beneficial to your children and to your family. I am often asked "Where can I find that support?".
It is with great pleasure that I introduce two wonderful women and psychotherapists Kimberly Satin Kubler and Aliza Lerner, co-directers for Center for Growing Families.
Kimberly Satin Kubler, LCSW-C, LICSW, has been practicing psychotherapy since 1995. In addition to co-directling and providing psychotherapy at the Center for Growing Families, she maintains a general, private psychotherapy practice. As a Parent and Community Education (PACE) leader, Kimberly runs new mother support groups throughout the Washington, DC, metropolitan area.
Aliza Lerner, LCSW-C, psychotherapist and co-director of the Center for Growing Families, has been in practice since 1992. She provides psychotherapy for adults, focusing on relationship issues, loss and grief, anxiety, depression, and parenthood.
In addition to Little Sleepers offices, I am pleased to announce that I am currently seeing families at this new location.
