Life’s challenging, and there’s no instruction guide handed out at birth. We’d all benefit from a ‘Life 101’ and a ‘Relationships 101’ class, but since there isn’t one, it’s easy to assume you’re just supposed to know how to deal with the challenges of life.
If you’re struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship problems, or other emotional distress, and then add on the shame you feel because you think you should be able to handle everything, that’s a pretty heavy load to carry.
Here’s the thing, though: If you were never taught tools to manage stress and anxiety, have a happy relationship, or handle the other challenges life throws at all of us, it’s understandable that you’d struggle – it’s not that different from trying to play guitar when you’ve never taken any lessons! Even if you do know the tools, it’s normal to get lost at times on the journey of life – it happens to all of us. There’s no shame in reaching out for support.
If that’s where you are, I’m here to help. Whether you call it counseling or therapy, the more important part is the outcome I help my clients achieve: better relationships, increased confidence, and a happier life. Keep reading to learn more about how I can help you.
