Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Marriage, Anxiety and Life Transition Counseling--Are you searching for meaning and harmony in your marriage or relationships after betrayal or loss? Do you suffer from anxiety attacks or have palpitations and not sure what is triggering them? Do you fear starting over after a breakup, serious illness or loss? Do you look in the mirror and wonder what happened to the person looking back at you? Where once was a vibrant, passionate, optimistic person looking back now seems low on energy, apathetic and lost as to purpose and what direction to go? You are not alone. Everyone goes through changes in their life when what once felt comfortable now no longer does. Whether you are struggling with: • Your marriage • Controlling anxiety • A loss of job or loved one • Serious illness or accident recovery • Unforeseen midlife obligations causing a crisis • An empty nester or retiree searching for purpose If you are experiencing any of the above, it may be time to take a step back and pull the pieces apart and explore what you really want and lay out a life plan based on a new set of intentions. Exploring and changing some old beliefs and habits and learning how to be in control of your thoughts and emotions can create a new reality that brings you control over your decisions and your life as well as feelings of happiness and purpose.
