My Approach to Helping
Are you feeling the brunt of COVID? Scared, lonely, hopeless, depressed, anxious, unhappy, stressed,
angry, or a roller coaster of emotions, maybe your feelings are attributed to the loss of a job, difficulty at work, concerns related to maintaining your home, financial issues, concerns about your children and
family, or maybe your aging parents, lack of social and emotional support, experiencing a health scare,
or fear and uncertainty. You may wonder, who I can speak with, without feeling that you are burdening
others, complaining, or alone. Are you wondering who can I speak with without fear of being judged or
stigmatized? You are not alone nor are your loved ones. Maybe you are wondering, who can help me,
does anyone care? Are you nervous about reaching out because maybe you have always been that
individual that everyone comes and talks with and you provide the answers, and now you need
compassion, a listening ear, and sound advice? You do not have to be consumed with fear or daily
negative thoughts. You can schedule some time to simply, talk.
