Having trouble seeing the forest through the trees?
I can help.
Recognizing the need for help is an important first step. In fact, rather than acknowledging a weakness, it is a sign of strength. I want to help you to build on that strength to achieve success in the areas you are struggling with.
Anxiety can be a frightening experience. I coach people who deal with this issue on ways to help themselves find solid ground, weather the storm and thrive despite feeling overwhelmed.
Certainly, a healthy balance of work, rest, and play lend themselves to better mental health. Both expected and unexpected life occurences can disrupt that balance or prevent it altogether. In either case, you still have choices.
As difficult as it can be to deal with loss, regardless of what has been lost, it need not be defeating. The common phrase “letting go” has much merit although it does not mean “forgetting.” It takes courage to deal with grief; some of us just don’t believe we have enough courage to do so. I offer ways to challenge that belief and help you get your feet back on the ground again.
Although it may be difficult to imagine, you are not powerless or without real hope. if you are suffering from depression, I provide several approaches that will help you envision the possibility of meaningful and positive change by considering what you know is true versus what simply appears to be true.
