Coping with Stress

img_0401cropped

Stress is an inevitable part of life. Whether you're someone who is sensitive to stress or someone who has a lot of stress to deal with, healthy coping is what makes the difference in our ability to function and carry on. I take time to assess behavioral patterns, functions, and together we will discuss your current coping and effectiveness. You may realize that you've been spending a lot of time and energy focusing on everyone else's needs and finding that you have little energy and time for yourself. For you, self-care may be about bringing back pleasure and joy via hobbies or activities. Or we may find that your self-care actually means, having to say "no" more often and putting boundaries so that you don't feel so overwhelmed and over-committed.

Remember, an empty lantern provides no light. In order for you to be effective in managing your multiple responsibilities, you must take care of yourself. Together, we can come up with meaningful ways for you to replenish and nurture yourself.
