The Mama Nest Therapist Family Irvine, CA
About Sahar
My husband John and I are parents to two wild boys, Sammy & Jamo. I'm a therapist and am currently finishing up my doctoral program (!!!). I am fascinated by how parenthood shapes and impacts families. I am currently in the process of developing a program for mamas to have a space to process the experience of entering into motherhood.

Wherever you are, be all there

What special skill, talent or gift would you like to give back to the community?

I want to hold space for others. I want to normalize the postpartum experience for women and not make it be so isolating if it doesn’t match the cookie cutter experience of others. My research is in the experience of individuals and couples after welcoming a child (postpartum care/maternal mental health), and my goal is to find ways to make that time feel more inclusive.

What is your biggest business challenge right now?

Standing out amongst the sea of therapists in the orange/la county area and sorting out how to provide a continuum of care

What do you want to achieve in 2018, personally and professionally?

I'd love to launch a 1 day event/retreat/dinner for mamas to connect and process the motherhood experience

What is one thing that would be game-changing for your business right now?

Finding the work/life/creative/professional/academic balance. Easy, right?

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

I love the idea of mamas coming together to support one another and create space for creativity, growth and fun
