Most everyone experiences some stress of anxiety in their daily life. From work issues to excess household chores and financial problems, it is easy to see how stress can affect your daily life and emotional well-being. Unfortunately, an estimated 6.8 million people in the United States live with a more severe form of anxiety known as generalized anxiety disorder. Also known as GAD, generalized anxiety disorder does not have to consume your life.
Some relationships stop working, and both parties are able to understand why the relationship is over. The breakup can be amicable, and the two people move forward in their lives. In the case of a relationship with a toxic person, the behaviors and treatment you received that were harmful during the relationship will often get more intense as you try to end things. A therapist can help you identify strategies to establish boundaries and to learn how to cope with the treatment you may still be getting because you have to parent your children together.
Hey everyone, my name is Lori Grffin. When my son was born, I was completely unprepared for the difficulties of raising a sensory deprived child. The stress of trying to parent a difficult child definitely takes its toll. Eventually, I had a nervous breakdown and ended up enrolling in individual counseling sessions. The counseling appointments helped me work through the emotions generated while coping with fits and meltdowns from my son. I emerged from each session better prepared to provide my son with the support he needed. I also learned how to pay attention to how I was feeling during the process. I created this site because I want to share the benefits parents receive from going to counseling sessions. Thank you.
