There are moments in life when you feel stuck in having to make life altering decisions, you are emotionally drained due to previous or present experiences, you worry about the future and what it has in store for you, or you feel grief due to a loss. It is these moments, and all in between, that create the pathways of your life. The realizations, epiphanies, or catalysts for change are often times not visible through a black and white perspective because of the intricacies of ourselves and our relation to others. This is a place where you are able to be vulnerable with yourself, enhance your strengths, continue your road of resilience, and discuss all that lies in gray.
Pain doesn’t discriminate. Children often feel residual effects of parental relationships due to separation or divorce. They may be experiencing their own emotional disturbances, trauma, or adjustment issues. There are substantial benefits for children who process their experiences therapeutically as it allows them to learn, understand, heal, and grow.
I would like to add that there is absolutely no shame in attending counseling. It takes a tremendous amount of strength. The courage of being vulnerable with yourself is by no means a sign of weakness. It is a sign of your continued resilience.
