There are so many reasons why you might find yourself seeking therapy at this time. Maybe you have found yourself recently experiencing feelings of anxiety, depression, or hopelessness, or perhaps you have struggled with them for awhile and have finally hit your breaking point. Perhaps you feel a sense of emptiness or a lack of confidence, but are having trouble locating the source of this feeling. Or possibly, you find yourself struggling in your relationships and want to understand why you keep having the same issues. Whatever concern or issue is bringing you to therapy right now, rest assured that you are not alone.
GRIEF & LOSS
A large part of my work has focused on sitting with individuals experiencing grief and loss. It is an unfortunate truth that we often do not allow people experiencing a loss the space to talk about their grief, the conflicted emotions that they find themselves cycling through each day, each moment. If you are going through a loss right now, you might find yourself bottling up your feelings and presenting yourself as “ok” to others, even when your grief is all you can think about, the only thing you feel. Therapy can be that one space in your life where you don’t have to be “ok,” where you can be sad, angry, lonely, guilty. In my experience, I can tell you that while therapy will not make your grief go away, it will give you the space to talk about what you’re going through, to remember your loved one, and to start to feel less alone with your feelings.
