Moms & Parenting Group

CTCNJ is excited to announce a new group focused on Moms of children ages 10 and younger. This group will be led by parenting expert Rachel Tombari, LPC. We will cover topics related to the transition to parenthood (and its impact on your marriage), how to prioritize yourself as a parent (a major goal of the group!), common parenting challenges (and some tips to solve them), and more.

  • Do you struggle to keep a balance between your own needs and the demands of your children/spouse?
  • Are you looking for a way to combat “mom guilt”?
  • Does the end of the day leave you with a feeling of burnout?

If any of the above resonates, this group is for you!

The intention for this group is two-fold:

  • Create a community of women to talk openly and honestly and to support one another
  • Challenge the stereotype of a “good Mom”
  • Provide reliable and valuable information on what actually makes a “good enough Mom”

Some general topics:

  • Review of parenting styles and the impact of how you were parented
  • Defining and exploring the concept of “martyr mom”
  • MOM GUILT and how to challenge
  • Dichotomies of parenting: how can I feel two strong emotions towards my child at once?
  • Projection and how this can lead to poor behavior
  • Distribution of tasks within the home: do you need more equity?
  • In-laws, childcare challenges, eating, sleeping, and more

The group will be run by Rachel Tombari, LPC.

Dates:  10 Wednesdays starting March 9th 2022
Time:  12:00pm to 1:00pm
Location:  online using MS Teams (encrypted and secure)
Cost:  $60 per meeting

If interested, please email me, Mariana, at or call 908-246-3074 x1 to schedule your pre-group interview. Rachel will conduct a 20-minute pre-group interview by phone with each interested participant to review the Group Agreement and answer any questions you may have.

We’re excited to have you join us!
