Have you been to downtown Alpharetta lately?
Wow! You may be longing for better weather when you can browse the new shops at Avalon, sample some fresh produce at the Alpharetta Farmer’s Market, or enjoy a meal at one of the new restaurants on Main Street.
Living in this beautiful, upscale area doesn’t mean life is easy.
In fact, you may find that your struggles are amplified when you see all the “perfect” people around you.
Or, you may not get out much because:
- You’re stressed all the time
- You have too much to do
- You aren’t sleeping well
- It seems all you do is drive your kids from one place to another
- Your aging parents are requiring more attention
- You’re dealing with cancer or a chronic illness or caregiving for someone who is
Deciding it’s time to start therapy or counseling often starts with trying to find a quick fix. Maybe you’ve talked to friends, read self-help articles or books, searched online in the middle of the night for ways to cope with being so overwhelmed and tired, or tried one of the many meditation or mindfulness apps because you heard that could help,
BUT…. you’re still not feeling better.
Or maybe you don’t have any idea what to do to get out of your funk or you’re on edge, snarky and irritable, and not sure how you’re going to take care of everything you need to do.
If you’re at a point where you feel you can’t add another thing to your plate, meeting with a therapist can help.
In under an hour a week, you can gain some perspective, support, tools, and strategies to lighten your load and cope with the crap life keeps throwing your way.
Finding the right support can make all the difference.
