Life sometimes throws us a curve ball. Daily life struggles and stress that we have normally handled with relative ease can suddenly seem overwhelming. Too much stress and the inability to handle it properly can begin to undermine our potential to enjoy our work and to care for ourselves and others. Finances, parenting, relationships, school, care taking, health concerns, and loss can be stressful aspects of life. When we begin to internalize these external stressors it can lead to depression, anxiety, anger, addiction, poor health, phsysical/emotional exhaustion and relationship problems.

Or maybe you’ve “checked all the boxes” but you still feel numb, disconnected, anxious or depressed? Maybe you are growing your family, and no one told you becoming a mother would be so difficult. But the fact is, life can be hard. Really hard. And sometimes we need help navigating our thoughts, feelings and experiences.

I believe at the core of much of our struggles and pain is the need to be more aware of our feelings which directly impacts our decision making and the subsequent actions that we take. I have spent the last 20 years working with adults and children/teens in hospital, community and school settings. Especially under the current backdrop of social, emotional and financial unrest; feelings of depression, anxiety, anger and feeling out of control can often be familiar. This is a most trying time for our children and adults/parents that are trying to navigate their livelihoods and often feeling the need to be all things for all people.
