"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you."
- Maya Angelou
The relationship that used to bring you so much joy now feels isolating, confusing, and frustrating. The more you try to make things better, the worse they seem to get. Fear is setting in that it may never get better, or could even end in separation.
Everyone said having a baby would be the most magical time in your life, but you're finding that juggling the demands of parenthood, partnership, and career are overwhelming. You and your partner are working harder and doing more than you've ever done before, but you both feel less appreciated and more spiritually exhausted than you've ever felt.
Anxiety and exhaustion are almost always running your life, and you can't remember the last time you felt grounded and at peace.
If any of this feels familiar to you, know it doesn't have to be this way.
Imagine actually looking forward to coming home at the end of the day because your marriage now provides you a sense of peace, support, and security. You "get each other" once again and feel like you get to live each day with your best friend.
Imagine trusting your abilities as a parent, enjoying the here-and-now with your partner and your baby, and being able to approach both the chaos and beauty of parenthood with humor and confidence.
Imagine being able to relax your body and mind on command, and knowing that no matter what adversity is thrown your way, you are confident in your ability to create a sense of inner peace and calm amidst high demand situations.
Good news: none of this has to be limited to your imagination! Therapy can enable you to transform your life into the purposeful, peaceful, and energizing one you've longed for.
