Why people call
Life can throw overwhelming problems at us: Job loss can challenge our very identity. Health problems can rob us of time and opportunity, Loss of a loved one can leave us devastated, adrift and alone. The arrival of a new baby can turn a solid relationship into a pressure cooker.
And so on...
We cannot always control the problems in our lives, but we usually do have some say in how we face them. My role is to help you find clarity about how you want to move forward, and to help you (and your partner, if a couple) marshal your skills and identify your resources so that you can face problems and pursue the life you want to live.
What's it like?
It's pretty informal: I'll ask you how you're doing and off we go. I listen and ask questions designed to help you make choices that are in line with what you hope for and what you value.
We will talk about problems big and small, and along the way there may be laughter and there may be tears. There will not be interrogation in search of what's "wrong" or "abnormal" about you. I won't be seeking to identify a disorder or a diagnosis. I won't tell you how to live your life, but I will help you figure out what life you want to live.
To figure out if this is for you, let's chat. Just give me a call at 310.776.5299 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
