Catherine o'brien, LMFT
Catherine is a licensed marriage and family therapist, speaker, and educator, and is the founder of HappyWithBaby.com. Happy With Baby provides counseling and coaching for new and expecting parents, facilitates courses to help parents manage expectations of parenthood, as well as understanding developmental milestones of infants and children.
Catherine is a California state co-coordinator for Postpartum Support International (www.postpartum.net) and has been volunteering with them since 2011. She also helped establish A Mother’s Heart a local organization in Sacramento that supports women and families affected by perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (http://a-mothers-heart.org/).
Catherine found her true passion after giving birth to her first child and realizing that, even with a strong relationship, adding a beautiful little baby really rocks your world. She wants to help couples have a plan to thrive during this transition, instead of just surviving.
Catherine is also married to her "perfect" partner and is a mother of a 7 year old son and 3 year old daughter. As a wife, mother, and business woman, Catherine knows what it's like to be a parent that is overwhelmed, exhausted, and doubting her competency. Her life's work is all about enabling moms to look at their own lives with the same compassion and unconditional love that they so generously give to their families.
