Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. I can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing.
Grief is a natural human response to loss that every person experiences differently. It can show itself in many ways. Grief moves in and out of stages from disbelief and denial, to anger and guilt, to finding a source of comfort, to eventually adjusting to the loss. It’s critical that you treat yourself with patience and compassion and allow the process to unfold. Life is filled with transitions so grieving losses is essential to moving on.
While every relationship is unique, most difficulties are caused by a breakdown in communication. Partners talk at one another rather than to one another, if they are still talking. When/if silencing/withdrawing the only thing that will change is the date. If partners are communicating anything is possible. A deeper level of intimacy is possible if partners are willing to risk sharing their feelings with one another. Blaming the other is a useless waste of time and energy, if each is willing to look at their role in the conflict, healing is possible.
