“Some days, doing “the best we can” may still fall short of what we would like to be able to do, but life isn’t perfect on any front - and doing what we can with what we have is the most we should expect of ourselves or anyone else.”
Maybe you're looking forward to things opening up again. And you're really anxious about going back to normal when you don't know what normal even looks like anymore.
Maybe you don't want to go back to how life was, but you have no idea of what you want life to look like now.
Maybe you're grieving a loss of family or friends, of a pet or a job or a career... or the loss of community gatherings you loved.
Maybe the changes in schedule that Covid brought has taken away all of your old distractions, and you can no longer push away your hurts or ignore your dreams.
Maybe you're just tired of feeling so bad about yourself.
Every. Single. Day.
I believe that change is possible. Healing is possible.
Finding your way is possible.
What are you waiting for?
Working with me
During this pandemic I am exclusively seeing people online through a HIPAA approved platform. I am in network for BCBS (excluding Value Options), which has approved teletherapy for all subscribers during this pandemic.
Why should you consider contacting me to talk about counseling?
You feel overwhelmed by stress and find it hard to step away from that stress for even a moment.
You don't know what to do with the grief that you feel. It may be grief for a specific event that you've lost or a more general grief for the ordinary life that we used to have
You're trying to support everyone else and feel stretched too thin.
You feel lost.
This experience is nudging you to look at your life more deeply; for example, to quit running from those questions or feelings that you've always avoided.
Someone close to you has died, and you don't know how to grieve when you can't have a visitation, a funeral or even a casserole delivered.
Or, you may be ready to deal with something that was in your life long before anyone ever heard of Covid19.
You've been carrying a lifetime of grief and it's just too heavy these days.
You're tired of apologizing with every breath, tired of saying such terrible things to yourself, and ready to explore what it might be like to live a life that's fully your life.
You're not sure about counseling, but your life just isn't working anymore.
Please feel free to contact me to talk about whether or not I might be a good fit for you and what you need.
