Are you going through a rough patch? Are you feeling sad, frustrated and stuck? In life, change is inevitable. Sometimes we can get through it on our own and sometimes we need guidance with finding our way out of a labyrinth of confusion and pain. Therapy can help you grieve a loss or navigate a tough life transition, such as a divorce or a change in employment. I am especially attuned to the changes we women go through in our lifetimes: the birthing, nurturing and launching of children, or the anguish and heartbreak of infertility, break-ups and new relationships, “empty nest,” peri-menopause and menopause, being a partner/wife/mother/sister/aunt/daughter, aging in a culture that worships youthfulness. As women, we need to tell our stories, share our struggles and victories, connect with our potential and make meaning in our lives. I believe, at its core, every transition is about grief: losing someone or something familiar and precious and stepping into the unknown. When we are able to process and incorporate our loss we can more fully embrace that which is emerging.
Imagine your life the way you want it to be. Do you imagine a happier, healthier, more meaningful and connected life? Do you see yourself reaching your fullest potential? Do you sense your strengths and feel validated, capable, empowered? Becoming our truest and best selves takes support, nurturing, and sometimes a lot of healing… And it is the most precious gift we can give ourselves, our loved ones, and the world. It is the gift of wholeness, authenticity, awareness and love. Integrative therapy can take you that step further, helping you heal past wounds, uncover those gems that make you unique, and unfold to your truest and best self.
