Happy Monday! Control

As we move into the new week ahead, one reliable way to reduce feelings of anxiety is to remember what is, and isn’t within our realm of control. When we focus heavily on trying to control the external things/people, we often find ourselves anxious and feeling overwhelmed. But, when you are able to focus inwardly, then you can notice the ways YOU can impact whatever situation you’re dealing with. So ask yourself, are you trying to control something that is not meant for you to control? #therapy #chicagotherapist #counseling #Nowseeingclients #virtualtherapy #telehealth #onlinetherapy #onlinetherapist #blackgirltherapist #womenstherapist #therapistofcolor #messagemonday

Happy Monday! Reconciliation

There is a real lesson in reconciling that it’s okay to feel “undesirable ” emotions. It’s okay to be lonely, bored, disappointed, and even angry. In feeling it, you get to learn how to get past it. Imagine how much more in control you will feel if you felt capable of addressing what you feel and not using someone else to. #therapy #chicagotherapist #counseling #Nowseeingclients #virtualtherapy #telehealth #onlinetherapy #onlinetherapist #blackgirltherapist  #womenstherapist #therapistofcolor #mesaagemonday
