Guilt, Shame, Anger, & Irritability

You are feeling overwhelmed, on edge, and every little thing seems to bother you. You are snapping at your partner, have no patience, and feel like you are failing. You feel like you aren't doing a good enough job as a mom and wonder why other moms seem to have it all together. You may feel guilty for wishing for time alone or for yelling at your toddler. Or you feel guilty because you can't seem to juggle it all or do anything right. Sometimes you get so angry you feel you are in a rage. You worry what people would think if they saw you acting that way and feel mortified.

 

It's a vicious cycle of something setting you off, you get angry then feel shame and remorse for your behavior. You vow tomorrow will be better but it happens again, just adding to your guilt.

There are many potential reasons you could be experiencing guilt, shame, anger, or irritability. We will help you sort through and get to the bottom of the reasons why. We will learn how to manage your triggers and end the vicious cycle so you can have more control over your feelings instead of them controlling you.
