There is no such thing as normal and you're not crazy. Everyone experiences life changes/transitions. Are you feeling confused? Stressed? Do you feel stuck in your life? Substance use issues? Single parent or parenting concerns? Trying to cope with changes in your relationship or marriage? You're not alone!! My goal is to help renew and restore your life.
