Relationships are hard. When things aren't going well, there's nothing more difficult than trying to deal with another person, especially someone you love. It can leave you feeling overwhelmed, confused, heartbroken and alone. It can get you questioning everything you ever thought was real about your relationship and wonder how you'll ever get things right side up again. Don't give up. I know it's not easy, but it can get better.

In response to these challenges, sometimes our thoughts, emotions and actions lead to anxiety, depression and other ineffective ways of coping. I have over 30 years of clinical experience working with substance use, mental health issues and other difficulties. When someone reaches out for support, they demonstrate great determination, hopefulness and personal courage to share in their private concerns. Making changes can involve focusing on personal values; learning and practicing new coping strategies and drawing on personal strengths.

(C) Inappropriate types of behavior or feelings under normal circumstances.
