I moved to Arizona 20 years ago from Fargo, ND leaving 100 inches of snow behind! The valley has been my home ever since. My husband and I have three kids, ages 10, 13 and 14 and I have two grown step-children. I've been in private practice now for over 10 years, but since receiving my first counseling license in AZ in 1998 I have worked in agency settings, mobile crisis teams, contracted with the juvenile court, and have seen and heard it all!
Do you barely remember life before the guilt? Find out how to be free and happy with who you are. Are you exhausted from trying to managing what people think of you? Are you hiding how you feel or something you have done? Are you having an affair? Drinking again? Have you had an abortion and it still keeps you up at night? Are you jealous of your step-children? Resent your partner? Have everything and are still unhappy?
Maybe you feel the secret is more than anyone could accept. So scared or trapped you can hardly breathe?
Perhaps you think you will never be able to face the people you love or those you have hurt. "If they knew, would they still want me?" You are wonderful and amazing and absolutely CAN face your past, your present, and your future with courage and honesty.
With help, you can face your fears and regrets. You can listen without taking everything personally, communicate honestly, love who you are and BREATHE again!
