Bad things have happened to you and you wonder if life will ever get better. You desperately want happiness, but it always feels out of reach. You feel irritable and overwhelmed by worries and your relationships are suffering because others just don’t get it. You're trying to hold it together, doing the best you can, but you feel like it's never good enough. You can’t stop thinking about the past even though you try. You wish you could just "get over it", you're angry that you can't, and you're wondering if you'll ever feel normal. More than anything you want to feel connected to others and start feeling excited about life!

Life can be scary and uncertain. Especially right now. We are all trying to figure out how to feel "normal" during this crisis/pandemic which we weren't prepared for. We often don't consider the importance in asking for help until we feel so heavy we don't know where to turn. My role is to help you identify your strengths and help provide tools to manage the difficult emotions. Anxiety, depression, and fear are all exacerbated during a time of crisis. Some of us are isolated without much social support & or are experiencing strain in our relationships being stuck at home together for longer periods of time.

Life is difficult, transitions can be hard. Things can go along well and then you can find yourself uncertain about past, present and future. Uncertainty can bring about further emotional challenges, feelings of sadness, confusion, worry and possibly fear. Healing can be discovered within the self and having someone come along side providing safety and guidance can help the process. Experiences in life have a tendency to shape who we become, our thoughts and our beliefs. Some experiences unknowingly can close avenues of growth and potential. I believe in the importance of knowing, understanding and accepting self.
