There are times when we feel like we can use extra support in life. Children may feel vulnerable and need their caring adult to help them find this support. For adults, that can come in the form of reaching out to a friend. We don’t always seek support because we feel shame, are too nervous, or are worried about what others might think. Talking to someone outside of your circle, in a non-judgmental environment, can often relieve some of that stress.

Issues of concern include mood disorders such as depression and anxiety, marital difficulties, communication problems, child/adolescent behavior, bereavement and emotional trauma, among others.
We all deal with changes. Change is inevitable in our lives and you can either manage change and shape it to your advantage, or let those changes manage and shape you. We have the abilities to cope with the changes in our lives. Sometimes we don't realize that we can and feel overwhelmed in dealing with stress. At other times we find ourselves in unexpected or extreme situations for which our normal coping skills are inadequate. Whatever the sources of your stress, the result could be anxious or depressed moods, panic attacks and more.
