Have you noticed a shift in your relationship since you became a parent?
Maybe you feel like the parental load isn't shared...
Maybe just being in the same room as your partner is triggering...
Maybe you feel that much of what's going in your home "isn't fair"...
Or maybe you feel like an afterthought most of the time and perhaps that your needs aren't as important...
It takes time to adjust our expectations of parenthood with the reality of our new roles.
A lot of times you may feel unseen or unheard by your partner, because it can feel like a lot of the work of caring for your baby falls on you.
This can give birth to resentment, especially in new parents.
It’s really easy to be angry, hurt, or resentful that your partner keeps their individual role, and their life doesn’t change much while you’re isolated at home caring for a newborn.
A lot of this resentment comes from our needs being unmet and then how these feelings are communicated...
Just because you're having these feelings,
doesn't mean that things have to remain this way.
It's time to do some digging and figure out what your unmet needs are, how to divide the responsibilities in your home, and how to better communicate your needs.
The Unpacking Resentment workshop was created for parents like you, who may be desperate for answers, but don’t know where to look.
In this workshop, Dr. Ream and Erica will provide you with tools to resolve feelings of resentment with your partner and give you the skills to create a fair partnership.
After taking this workshop you will know:
What resentment is
How resentment builds in our relationships
Common patterns that play out in relationships
Your communication style
How to communicate in productive ways
How to divide parental responsibilities

Hi there! We’re Dr. Ashurina Ream and Erica Djossa, MA. Together, we have more than 20 years of clinical experience helping moms navigate the overwhelming feelings that come with parenting.
We created the Unpacking Resentment Workshop because 67% of parents are unhappy with each other during the first few years of their child's life.
This theme kept coming up in sessions and in our other workshops. Parents are dissatisfied in their relationships. They want more. They expected more. Their needs aren't being met. They've stopped communicating. They've argued more than they'd like to admit. They haven't prioritized one another. They've grown apart.
Add to this the toxicity of comparison and we're headed to a dark place.
If your relationship is not what you want it to be, we're here to remind you that you are NOT alone. We also want to remind you that it can get better.
We created this workshop to reach as many parents as possible. We’ve done all of the research and we want to share this information with you in the most clear and practical way.
The best day I've had in a while!
Thank you so much for this! We attended the workshop because my husband listened to the Intrusive Thoughts podcast. This is the best day I have had in a while!
