Grief, Loss, and Disappointment can cause Confusion

Losing a loved one through death, disappointment, distance, or betrayal all trigger feelings of grief and loss. Grief is also real when there is a loss of dreams, financial resources, or safety and security. Grief hits us in unexpected and confusing ways.  

“Get over it” does not work.

Grief is a journey you don’t have to walk alone

Trauma and Abuse are Not Who You Are

The impact of trauma and abuse on a person is mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual. Trauma and abuse turn your world upside down, shake your reality, and twist your perceptions. Anger, fear, anxiety, insecurity, broken relationships, depression, as well as questioning one’s sanity, reality, and purpose can result. Healing from trauma and abuse is not forgetting; it is easing the intensity of the emotions. 

You are not crazy.

You can heal

Build Happy and Loving Relationships

Loved ones, friends, and family are fundamental relationships. And they often don’t function well. Broken trust, unresolved hurts, anger, and a sense of being misunderstood are several of the roadblocks to healthy and fulfilling relationships. 

You do deserve happy, loving, and supportive relationships
