Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor, LCAS-A
Being able to talk about things that keep you feeling distant from others can be a freeing experience. I work with individuals that have a history of addiction, trauma, addictions (substance and behavioral), history of abuse, and a number of other unresolved issues. Your thoughts and feelings are important; develop the ability to be appropriately assertive.
All of us can use a helping hand sometimes. Talking about things that have become frustrating in your life or too much to manage by yourself is not admitting weakness, it's deciding that you want to become stronger in that area. When we recognize that we need help, we have the opportunity to ignore it, or obtain/develop some tools to turn it into a strength.
