• Therapy for women dealing with mom burnout

    Banishing mom burnout and reclaiming yourself as a person and parent.

    Therapy in Frederick, MD and Counseling in Chambersburg, PA via online therapy.

    Reclaiming yourself as a person and parent is possible.

    You might just need a new plan.

    My clients have had a plan since they were 10, including the college they wanted to attend, and the name of their first kid. They make dean’s lists and earn promotions, always striving for that next gold star. They’re deeply sensitive, highly empathic, and loved by many. They’ve been doing their absolute best to keep smiling, despite feeling like they’re crumbling from the inside out; no one would ever know that they wake up each day dreading how they might even make it ’til noon without a nap or a breakdown. Despite their burnout, they somehow continue to check all the boxes: they make the dinners and they keep everyone on track. When it’s time for bed, they find themselves spinning in anxiety, unable to sleep, thinking and rethinking schedules, presentations, and the endless tasks that need to be done.

    By the time they come to see me, they feel helpless, run down, and they’re terrified that the “spark” that has been such an essential part of them has gone out for good. They feel stifled at work and unappreciated at home; they yearn to reconnect with how vibrant they used to be. Asking for help is NOT on the to-do list, but staying where they are seems impossible.

    If you’re ready to take charge and learn how to deal with burnout, it is within your grasp. You can reclaim yourself as a person AND parent.

    Hi, I’m Leah Rockwell.

    I’m Leah, a lovingly direct therapist and co-parenting mom of two. I’m a former “professional striver” who knows how scary it is to let go of earning the next gold star.

    I get it. You’ve found yourself googling, “how to deal with burnout” one too many times, and you’re just over it. If you’re ready to break free from the pressure cooker that’s holding you back and burning you out, I’m ready to help you do it. 

    Women’s therapy for recovering from burnout

    Busy women seeking counseling often prefer online therapy because it is accessible, flexible, and allows them to engage in self-care on their own terms from the comfort of their own homes. I offer licensed professional online counseling services for women located in Pennsylvania or Maryland.

    The issues that clients most often seek my help with, and for which online therapy works well, are:



    constant need to feel productive, trouble resting

    co-dependency & people pleasing

    burnout and toxic work environments, career concerns

    compassion fatigue

    difficulty setting boundaries

    grief or loss of identity

    postpartum counseling

    trouble managing time off or down time

    issues related to becoming a mom

    People who have worked with me on how to deal with burnout often self-identify as:

    • Moms whose careers are on hold or detoured while they raise children
    • Highly Sensitive People (HSP’s)
    • Medical residents, physicians in training, other healthcare professionals
