When you lie down to go to sleep, your brain doesn't turn off. It keeps running you in circles, and everything gets tangled. You feel like every decision you make is the wrong one. You try to plan for it all, but you can't. And it's debilitating. Working with a therapist can help you feel confident in the uncertainty.
You might feel sad or lonely, or maybe you don't feel anything at all. You might not recognize the person staring back at you in the mirror. The lack of joy or excitement in your life is debilitating. You might not even have the motivation to get "better," you just know you need to do something. Together, we can help you move toward a life you're excited to live.
Adjusting to new things is hard! We've all been there. Your whole world might look different (or maybe it just feels like it). The only thing constant in the world is change. We all need a little help here and there to process it all. We can process through all the good and bad feelings that come with change.
You lost your sleep schedule, your favorite activities, and along with it, your identity. Your stay up thinking about all the ways you're doing motherhood "wrong," and when your baby cries, it's hard not to take it personally. Let me help you navigate these uncharted waters with grace and resilience.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) can help you not only cope with PTSD symptoms and anxiety, it can also help reprocess the event as a whole. This reprocessing can help "repair" the mental injury from the memories of a traumatic event.
Whether you're interested in healing through surfing, stand up paddle boarding, or simply being near the blue water, Surf and Ocean therapy is a great place to start. It has been shown to help people decrease anxiety and depression and can even help reduce PTSD symptoms.
Life isn't always easy, but it doesn't always have to be hard. There's hope for you. When we're struggling through things, it's hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. It's okay to ask for help. We can work together to give you a safe place to process all the emotions and create a sense of optimism moving forward.
