About You

What are You Struggling With?

If we were to begin working together, one of the first things I would ask you is “What has happened recently, and what have you been experiencing that is causing you to seek help?” I would want to know the most pressing and stressful part of your struggles. Together, we would then work to relieve your distress and upset as quickly as possible so you can begin to feel better. I’m not sure what you are going through right now, but it may help to learn some common challenges people were struggling with when they first began working with me. Perhaps you can relate….

“I don’t ever feel good enough. It always seems like I screw up every relationship. I don’t want to be like this, but I feel so needy and insecure. I don’t know what my problem is.”
“I was abused when I was a child, and I feel overwhelmed from past trauma memories. It’s causing a lot of stress for me, and I can’t focus at work. I feel on edge, moody, sad, and depressed.”
“I have fibromyalgia and it’s really effecting my ability to live my life. I don’t feel well, I’m exhausted, overwhelmed, in pain and I worry about the future.”
“We can’t even talk to each other without arguing, and I’m tired of the constant conflict and tension, so I brought up separation.” “I don’t feel close to him anymore and we haven’t been intimate in more than a year.”
“I’ve been feeling stressed, stuck, and depressed. I don’t know how to get my life back on track. I want to move forward, but I’m anxious and afraid and I don’t know how to fix it or even fix me.”

Struggling through these types of difficult life experiences and dealing with painful feelings of anger, sadness, anxiety, grief, loss, fear, and betrayal is something you don’t have to suffer with alone. Contemplating coming to counseling for the first time or returning to therapy to work on some new or old issues can be scary and anxiety-provoking. It may be easy to tell yourself that you don’t have time, you’ll be okay, you can handle it without help, or you can’t afford it.

Yet, something is happening for you right now that brought you to this place at this moment in time as you are reading these words. I encourage you to think about what you really need and what you are searching to find. Whatever is happening for you, you likely have a desire, need and interest in talking to someone about what you are going through so you can receive some encouragement and understanding.

We all need support, compassion, and someone to give us a safe and non-judgmental space when we are struggling. Right now is when you need it and, in case you are wondering, YES you deserve to receive it.
