Are you struggling making sense of the world around you? Do you sometimes feel like everything is "too much" ? Life has a habit of throwing curve balls. Sometimes things don't go as we expected, and it can have a significant impact on how we think and feel. Relationships, of all kinds, can be challenging, and sometimes you just need someone to talk to. Problems can feel like they are taking up all the space in your mind, and weighing you completely down. I can help you unravel those thoughts and feelings, cope, and find happiness again.
