"We may not be able to prevent change but we can learn
how to cope with it, asking for the right support along the way."
- Jordana Perlman, LCSW
Without the right coping tools, life's stressors can leave you feeling
frustrated, confused and alone.
If you find yourself in this position, you may
choose to keep your thoughts and feelings
private, not wanting to burden friends and
family. You may think no one will understand or
that time alone will lead to positive change. Or
you may try to reach out for help, slowly
realizing that loved ones are not always able to
provide the help you need.
This is the time to invest in counseling.
Working with a therapist can help
provide insight, support and new strategies to
help you better manage stress, cope with
challenging life transitions, overcome feelings
of helplessness and strengthen your
relationships along the way.
