There is vast range of emotions that accompany a parent of a child with special needs. Whether you are feeling confused, fearful, disappointed, stressed or overwhelmed, talking to a professional can feel like a weight has been lifted off your shoulders. Karen supports the needs of the family, and works collaboratively with other professionals.
Another specialty of Karen’s, is working with clients who are experiencing symptoms of ANXIETY. If you are experiencing anxiety, like being fatigued, irritable, restless, nauseous, having a feeling of impending doom, or trouble sleeping, you know it can interfere with your day-to-day functioning and can even be debilitating. Help is available and you don’t have to suffer.
DEPRESSION also presents with a large array of symptoms. Are you: always feeling tired, had a change in your appetite, having trouble concentrating, finding yourself flying off the handle easily because everyone irritates you, recognizing that you have lost interest in everyday activities? Do any or all of these sound familiar to you? You may not realize it, but there is a possibility that you are experiencing depression and you don’t have to feel this way.
It can feel devastating and lonely when having problems with your RELATIONSHIPS. Do you wonder why everyone else seems to get along, but you can’t ace this relationship thing? Issues related to relationships can lead to depression, anxiety, and other disorders. You seem like you are in a vicious cycle and nothing ever changes. You can change your situation and improve the way you and your partner relate to one another, or you and a friend communicate. Change can be positive, and communication can improve. Don’t get stuck in the same old rut, take the plunge, get help and make small changes that will feel like enormous accomplishments
