Life is often unpredictable, complex, and challenging, even more so when you’re carrying your past hurts, present struggles, and your dreams for the future. Work, family, and relationships with others can be pushed to the forefront, but what about your OWN mental and emotional needs? Therapy is a safe space where you get to unpack, and focus on your needs, physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. It can also be a place where you can explore and gain insight to your own identity, thoughts, feelings and behaviors and how they impact your life and relationships.

Your unresolved life experiences can keep you stuck in a loop and affect how you see yourself, in relationships, and in the world. Sexual abuse can show up as low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, PTSD, difficulty expressing emotions, people-pleasing, or perfectionism to name a few. The right therapy can bring transformation, movement, and healing from the inside out. Therapy is not a bad word. Therapy does not mean you are weak - it means you need a guide to give you the space to heal and help rebuild the view you have of yourself and your world.

You aren't okay, and most days, feel nothing near strong. The only thing you wish would pass is the time it takes for everyone to leave you alone. Alone to process the grief and loss of losing someone you love. Time to figure out the next step in your own life transition. Space to start taking care of your family the way you need to. You can barely handle all of these changes! Who exactly is holding it together enough to be “okay”?
