I serve children, teens, and adults with high needs (developmental concerns, behavioral difficulties, addictions, trauma, etc.) In servicing those needs, I have found that too often that the rest of the family can be neglected. Similar to the wind chime affect, when one is blown, all the chimes are affected, and often not addressed in therapy. I believe in seeing all of you and working on all things that are affecting the family.
For example, as moms, it is so important to find time for yourself, because in the shuffle we lose ourselves. We know well how to put other needs before our own. To often we are trying to keep our head above water. YOUR NEEDS matter and is a necessary part of the healing process. That is why I believe in providing quality therapeutic services to the family unit that is under stress with life experiences such as trauma, addiction, mental health, and developmental needs.
In the midst of it all, don't forget about you...
Often feel UNCOMFORTABLE in social situations? Or at times even in your own skin? Feel like your worries or emotions take over? Ways to feel more comfortable and less frustrated..
Support and Balance
Mother. Sister. Friend. Wife. Caretaker. Cook. Teacher. Etc. All these roles, but you still find yourself questioning, "WHO AM I IN THE MIDST OF THIS?" Finding balance can look like..
You wear multiple hats, taking care of the needs of others but you. You are EXHAUSTED and everything takes so much energy. Setting boundaries can help..
