I've found that having a dedicated space to unpack your heart with someone who unconditionally supports your growth & has a skill set/capacity to do so is priceless. Therapy isn't just for healing trauma, working with a disorder but is a preventative gift (to you and your loved ones).

Therapy can be one of the bravest and most life-changing experiences you can engage in. It's a personal journey of self-awareness and healing. A key aspect of that process is finding the appropriate therapist to support you on that journey. The right fit is important. My belief is that each person has within them the wisdom to know how to heal. My job as therapist is to help people connect with that inner wisdom and utilize the person's strengths to address the challenges they are currently facing.

It's 3AM and you're wide awake – sleepless with that aching emptiness inside. Your heart is beating so fast you can feel it in your throat. All you can think about is the fact that your loved one is gone. Completely overwhelmed with sadness and fear, wandering from room to vacant room, you wonder when your heartache will ever end. It’s been impossible to focus on your well meaning friends. Sometimes they say things that make no sense: “Just give it time.” "You're going to meet someone new." If you have to fake another “I’m fine” you’re going to stop answering your phone. Grieving alone hurts. Isolating has become your new normal.

Do you ever wonder if there's more to life than constantly multi-tasking, being overcommitted, worrying about the past or future - basically, feeling overwhelmed? All of these can contribute to the accumulation of stress in our lives and in our bodies. The bad news is that research shows stress is harmful to the body and the brain. The good news is that stress can be successfully managed in a healthy way through the process of health & wellness coaching. What would your life look like if you could use your strengths as a powerful tool to help you change the feeling of "overwhelm" to "peace of mind"?

Karima Shamma is not currently taking new clients. Life satisfaction hinges on the quality of past & current relationships because we grow in relationship with others. This is what therapy is all about. I work with adults, adolescents, college and transitional-aged to unearth the roots of inner distress, expand awareness, curiosity, energy and empowerment. Life is not rigid, it flexibly ebbs & flows. Growth, while scary demands a surrender of outdated beliefs and behaviors, leaving a familiar comfort zone. But guess what? You will not be alone.
