Sometimes life can suck. I don’t know how else to say it. I know you know what I mean.
Girls come to therapy saying…
- I feel misunderstood; no one really gets me.
- My parents think they know what I’ve been through, but they don’t.
- I feel hurt inside and so I withdraw or lash out in anger.
- I’ve lost friends and important people in my life and I don’t know what to do.
- I need to know that I’m loved, but I don’t feel loveable at all.
I want you to know that you are not alone.
Sometimes girls actually ask for help when loneliness, depression, anxiety, panic, and feeling overwhelmed takes over and they just can’t take it anymore. Other times, they come because a parent, teacher, doctor, school counselor or a friend cared enough to recommended therapy. Some girls may be guarded and not want to talk… at first.
This is your time, your place, your space to be real and heal.
I’m here for you. I have six daughters and four sons so I get the challenges of being a teen. I’m not here to fix you. I’m here to be with you and share your story… the good, the bad, the not so pretty. I have hope that things can be better for you.
My oldest daughter is open and real about her struggle with bi-polar disorder. Just like you have a loved one seeking help for you, it was our family’s story too. When she was 15-years old she had to learn to manage her inner demons of anxiety, depression, severe mood swings, panic, obsessive-compulsive disorder and exhaustion. She was worth fighting for. Her life matters. I believed in her! Today, she shares her story of struggles to help others.
You’re enough! You’re worth fighting for! You matter! I believe in you!
When you’re sick and tired of being sick and tired, I am here to help.
Life can be a whole lot better, it really can!
