Know Yourself Counseling
Counselor, LMHC, EdM, MFA
Breakups are immensely painful. The feelings of rejection, shock, and grief that arise in their wake sometimes seem minimized by cultural cliches that suggest we'll feel better after some couch-wallowing with Ben and Jerry's. Really, our brains process heartbreak in the same cerebral regions that physical pain is felt (to learn more, check out neuroscientists Edward Smith's breakup study) and it's understandable to need more support than sad songs or even friends can provide. We will share experiences, process our emotions, and consolidate tools for moving through this transition. We will also read and discuss sections from relevant reading material.
