Your best efforts to improve your connection with your partner or with your family only seem to make things worse. You feel unheard, unseen, unloved, ineffective, and you wonder if the people you love so much care about you at all. Loneliness, frustration, and a gloomy view of the future have replaced the aliveness you used to feel. Or perhaps grief has made a home in your heart and no matter what you do you cannot move on from the pain. Or maybe you have lived through events that left you feeling as if something in you changed forever, as if the best of your life is gone and you will never experience true joy again.

Everyone deserves support through life's most difficult times. For some, it may have been an event that occurred years ago, and for others it is more recent. Seeking professional help and support is often times the first step to coping with a difficult life period and is a huge sign of courage and investment in oneself. I believe that healing and empowerment are wholly achievable and begin with a trusting and accepting therapist-client relationship in a supportive therapeutic environment.
