Looking for support for yourself or your family?
Are you pregnant or a new parent adjusting to life changes?
Have you recently experienced a loss or are struggling with fertility?
It is not always clear what causes someone to suddenly seem withdrawn, worried, stressed, angry, or tearful. If you feel you or someone you know needs help coping with a difficult life event, trust your instincts. Therapy can help develop problem-solving skills, provide the emotional support during times of need, and work through a difficult experience.
Families can benefit from counseling during times of change and transition such as becoming a new mother or father, being in a new relationship, parenting struggles, grief and loss, and so forth.
