Grief and loss is such a taboo subject, may people are afraid to discuss. I start by building rapport, providing unconditional positive regard and empathy. A huge aspect of grief or loss is education. I believe it's important to learn about the stages of grief to fully grasp that our emotions are normal and valid. I integrate metaphors and other's experience to further normalize the process.
Anxiety is something we all have. Anxiety is good and bad. Anxiety is just one part of us, not our whole identity. I utilize mindfulness techniques to ground yourself and bring you back to homeostasis. Then we can being utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Techniques to challenge your thinking. Throughout this process, you begin to change your relationship with the anxiety to regain control.
Women's issues encompasses vast topics, but not limited to, anxiety, depression, role identity, sexual issues, relationships, self-esteem, self-worth, etc. I work to empower women utilizing their strengths to regain their power and control.
