Raising a baby is a wonderful experience but it is also a challenge. We get that. This year on Bell Let's Talk Day, we are hosting a low-key informal Pajama Party for you to come out with your baby to meet other moms and chat.  We'll have a speaker to give a short talk about self-care and what we can do to take better care of ourselves while caring for our little ones. 

The speaker will talk about self-care and wellness followed by a 20 minute circle time, and 20 minutes of mingling. 

Coffee/snacks will be provided. 

Hosted by Christina.

Talk lead by Dr. Tanya Cotler: 

Dr. Cotler is a licensed Clinical Psychologist in Ontario, Canada and New York State specializing in reproductive and maternal mental health and parent-child attachment. Dr. Cotler brings the value added dimension of experience as both a child and an adult psychologist. With training in working with individuals across the developmental spectrum she is uniquely able to relate to parents and their children. Similarly, her specialized Post Graduate Certification in Parent Infant Psychotherapy from Columbia University, New York allows Dr. Cotler to work with parent(s) and their infants/young children (ages 0-4) to help build, restore or maintain a secure attachment bond. By involving both parent and infant in the psychotherapy process, each member of the dyad can feel understood, known and recognized.  

With well over a decade of experience in CBT, DBT, Mindfulness-based practices and Psychodynamic Orientated Psychotherapy, Dr. Cotler is committed to helping women, men and families cultivate the necessary tools to sustain thriving and fulfilling lives. Dr. Cotler works with women and men trying to conceive, once expecting, through prenatal and postpartum adjustments, postpartum mental health issues, and relationship challenges after birth. A strong focus of Dr. Cotler’s practice is also on pregnancy loss and miscarriage as well as infant loss. In addition to individual and family therapy, Dr. Cotler offers Mindful Parenting workshops throughout various locations in Toronto as well as Mother2Woman/Woman2Mother groups for new mothers. M2W_W2M groups focus on the transition to motherhood and the many postpartum changes that occur both psychologically and physically for women. The primary therapeutic goal is to help each mother re-connect to her pre-mama identity while fostering new connections to her maternal identity as well as to other new mothers.

Dr. Cotler’s clinical work is supported by her doctoral research and thesis, which focused on the primary attachment relationship formed between a child and parent and the importance of this relationship in emotion regulation, and how one connects, feels and thinks about themselves and others. Dr. Cotler has published a number of works and book chapters on the motive to connect to others and its implications in the real world.
