Julia D. Ayraud - Embrace Your Life, MA, LPC-S, NCC, CCTP, CGRS, Counselor in The Woodlands
You look like you have it together but you know things are not what they seem. You have lost a loved one that life will never be the same. You are lost and grief-stricken. You don't quite know how to cope with life without your person. Deep down, you question how you will even go on and make it without them. You feel like you don't know who you are anymore. If you are at the point where it is overwhelming and may be difficult to keep these feelings hidden anymore, know that you are not alone.
You ask, "Will life ever be the same?" Imagine being able to embrace this loss and feeling hopeful about the future. I can provide a calm, kind, and compassionate space for us to process all of the feelings and doubts you might be carrying. Together we can work through this.
I have the expertise to help you work through your loss. As a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist, I offer appointments that meet your needs and lifestyle through a user friendly website. Visit my website today to learn how I can help in person or online.
