These are unprecedented times. The loss of control people feel in the face of COVID-19 is chronic and unrelenting. The impact is vast, including job security, health fears, social systems disruption, emotional health, relationship health and for many, baseline survival needs are in question. The very state of uncertainty for prolonged periods of time can be traumatic, rocking your paradigm of how you thought the world was and not knowing when it will return to any semblance of what normalcy was for you.
Since the onset of the pandemic, I’ve worked with a lot of people under various degrees of strain as they’ve been forced to pivot and adapt, learn how to “be” in this new normal, adjust to being at home more than ever and managing their relationships including partners and children. Many miss their friends, are trying to wrap their brains around what school will look like for their children this Fall, what their businesses are going to look like in the coming months and have relationships that were already stressed before, now with more tensions bubbling up.
This is hard.
I help individuals figure out how they best navigate these rough waters through activating self care, processing emotions and problem solving. If you are struggling with an emotional roller coaster (like many are), perhaps you need some help learning how to self-soothe and better regulate your emotions. Sometimes when you’re in the thick of the forest, it’s hard to see the light through the trees. Whether you are a high level CEO, in the movie/tv industry, stay at home mom (that sounds funny these days when many of us are “stay at home”) or college student trying to wrap your head around what to think and feel around all of this, I am happy to support you. We are all in a continuous state of grieving the loss of what was and important life events that have been missed.
If you feel overwhelmed by worry, stuck in grief and hopelessness or stressed more than you can manage on your own, let me support you in the ways.
Couples are also feeling the weight of this pandemic. Our individual emotional experiences impact our important relationships so if one or both are struggling, perhaps neither can fully show up to each other. Or if your relationship was in trouble prior to COVID-19, it might feel in more crisis now. Now more than ever we need to be able to rely on each other to be a port in the storm. I help couples reconnect and attempt to re-establish their emotional safety together.
If you are having a hard time individually or in your relationship as a consequence of COVID-19 I’d like to help. CONTACT ME.
