Two Registered Psychologists & Alberta mamas here to help you navigate all things parenting & mental health
Who are we?
We are Caitlin & Chelsea, both registered psychologists in Alberta 🇨🇦. We created this community as a way to share resources & support on all things motherhood and raising littles!
Our account touches on perinatal mental health, maternal mental health, topics we are both very passionate about and secondly, raising your littles!
We both are trained in play therapy, child development, and work with children and moms who have experienced trauma and/or mental health issues. Chelsea is certified in perinatal mental health and complications related to that. Caitlin is certified in EMDR and applying EMDR to kids (a research backed highly effective form of treating trauma). We both have various other trainings behind us, if you are curious we will tell you more.
I (Chelsea) have one little boy who was very eager to see the outside world at 27 weeks 5 days, which has given myself and my husband the unique experience of NICU life for nearly 4 months, together we raise every animal under the sun on our farm in southern Alberta. I
I (Caitlin) have one boy toddler (3yrs) and a baby girl (8 months) and they keep my husband and I, B-U-S-Y. I am always on the go and cannot start the day without drinking a cup of coffee-can’t happen.
