General Counseling

Grief and Loss

Grief is, perhaps, one of the most commonly shared experiences between humans. If we are lucky enough to love, most of us will also be faced with experiencing grief at some point in our lives.

 

Following any significant loss, there can be a cascade of emotions and challenges that make it seem impossible to carry on. But some losses are more difficult to move on from.

Therapy can help provide grounding in an otherwise unanchored time. We can collaborate with you to grieve in a way that also allows you to heal from your loss and find hope again.

Communicating and Relating to Others

People are often surprised to find out how much skill and work actually goes in to successful communication and maintaining harmonious relationships.

 

This is true for romantic relationships as well as family, friends, colleagues, and the world in general.

 

Learning the skills to improve relationship patterns can be difficult and painful.

 

It can require acknowledging previous mistakes, letting go of firmly entrenched beliefs and arguments, learning to let go of people who don't value you, and increasing your comfort with vulnerability.

Improve Your Relationship with Yourself

We can be our own worst enemies. We can talk to ourselves in ways we would never talk to another human, not even someone we hated.

 

We work with individuals who constantly doubt or criticize themselves, feel uncomfortable in their own skin, and believe they are not worthy of the accomplishments they have accomplished in life.

The adage is true: you can’t love anyone else until you learn to love yourself. And learning how to talk to yourself with a kinder, more balanced voice is a necessary starting point.
