The rise in the popularity of social media has resulted in the false impression that most people are loving life and living their dreams. Each day, you see countless Facebook posts of people showing off their luxurious vacations, well-posed family pictures and announcements of yet another promotion at work or new home purchase.
You look at their life and think, “Wow…they have it all, and what am I doing with my life? Is this really what my life is going to look like forever?”
You wonder how you got here with all of the hard work you’ve put in and resent the fact that despite your hard work, you still experience sadness and disappointment as you compare your life to others. Soon, that disappointment turns to jealousy, resentment or feelings of inadequacy.
In truth, adulthood can be a difficult journey that no one really warned you about (or you didn’t want to listen when they did). And when you don’t talk about the frustrations and challenges of adulthood, they get worse.
Whether you are experiencing new problems in your life or issues that have been present for many years, I can help you. I provide counseling to women who are searching for balance, harmony and happiness in life because of these challenges and more:
- Adjustment to separation, divorce and remarriage
- Family of origin issues
- Recovery from childhood or adulthood rape, abuse, and assault
- Relationship issues
- Adjustment to parenting a child with a disability or medical condition
- Parent, childcare provider and teacher mental health
- Grief and bereavement
Not sure that individual therapy is the best choice for you because your biggest challenge in life involves your significant other? That’s fine! Bring your significant other in and we can work together in couples counseling with the goal of providing balance, harmony and happiness for both of you!
