"The question I’m always asking as a counselor is not, “How can I help my clients cope better?” but rather, “How can I help them not have to cope so much in the first place?” Coping gets exhausting after a while, doesn’t it? Maybe you’ve been in counseling before, (maybe for a really long time) and maybe you’ve already learned some good ways of coping. I’m more interested in helping you truly, permanently heal on a deeper level so you don't have to work so hard to just treat the symptoms. I've also learned that we usually can’t there just by talking about it. Talk therapy is often really helpful, but usually not enough. "

You appear calm on the outside but on the inside you're wondering if you're really cut out for this. Anxiety about all of the uncertainty and your ability to manage it is real. It makes it difficult to think clearly and perform effectively, let alone be present in your day to day life. What can you control during these times of sudden change? You're ready for a mindset change - to go from reacting to taking charge of your life in this new environment."
