The Kids Are Back In School, So Why Don't You Feel Any Better?
Counseling for Moms in Louisville, CO
You've been waiting all summer for that moment when maybe you can catch a break. But, the break never comes. You feel stressed, anxious, and it's as though you are never good enough, there's never an end in sight. Just when you think things are going to relax, a kid gets sick, the principal calls, or a family member needs you. You are being pulled in so many directions all of the time.
You wish you could run away.
You fantasize about getting in the car and just driving for miles...far away from here. But you have a to-do list that is a mile long, and it's not like someone else will step in to take care of everything the way you do. No matter how much support you have, you still feel alone and seen only as someone's mom or partner, never for who you are or who you used to be before all this. It makes you want to crawl out of your skin.
The anxiety seems to be winning.
It's more than just day-to-day stress; it's how you see the world. You learn to anticipate and plan for every possible outcome and response. It's why people have relied on you because you are so dependable and prepared. But it's exhausting.
Counseling is the beginning of finding yourself.
It's the place where you finally get to share and be understood. There aren't distractions or people needing you and, instead, you will discover it is a way to take care of you, just you. I help women who are drowning in anxiety and depression to find relief. They enter into the quiet session time reserved just for them, they think, talk, are heard, validated, supported to grow, and they get the opportunity to explore their options for making changes for a more sustainable existence. They walk away feeling capable; they have agency in their lives and they know what they want.
It's time for you to take care of you.
