At the Nurture Tree we offer counseling, consulting, and educational presentations.

Individual Counseling

In a calm and supportive environment, Kathryn gives you a place to discuss thoughts, feelings or situations that might be interfering with your daily life.  Sessions are generally one hour, but one and one-half hour sessions can also be arranged.

Babies up to six months old are welcome at appointments.  For those wanting their baby nearby, but not in the session, your baby’s caregiver may stroll the surrounding neighborhood and enjoy close-in parks, coffee shops and restaurants.

Group Counseling

Connecting with others who are experiencing similar issues can add perspective to what may feel like an isolating experience. Facilitated by a professional counselor, group therapy is also a place to learn stress alleviation techniques and tools to improve your mental health. Sessions are 90 minutes in duration.

Career Counseling

Becoming a mother often changes a woman’s ideas about her career and interests. Often, former careers don’t give back the energy they once did after a baby enters the picture. Exploring ideas about meaningful work, and taking a certified career interest inventory test can be enlightening, and help to provide a way to channel energy toward a new work identity.


New mothers face a particularly challenging time when headed back to work. In order to make this transition as healthy and free-of-worry as possible, we work with employers, human resource managers and assistants in creating back-to-work plans, workplace parent support groups, and policy for their employees who have babies and young children.
