We are going through an individual and collective trauma at this moment due to the Covid-19 pandemic that presents a paradox requiring us to find support and resist isolation in a moment where we also need to intentionally isolate ourselves to keep others safe. Therapy can help provide a space to understand these feelings and experiences and offer more care and compassion to ourselves to make way for more empathy, presence and compassion for others. When you give it to yourself, you have more to give to someone else.
When we are aware of what we are feeling and experiencing, we are less likely to act it out on others or turn it on ourselves in destructive ways that do not serve us. It has power over us when we do not have this awareness. We've got to name it to tame it. Naming helps us normalize it, put it in perspective and check our expectations.
If you are in need of support, I currently have openings and I am seeing clients online until I am able to return to the office. Please reach out to set up an appointment using the contact form at the bottom of this page.
