Hi! I am a licensed psychotherapist helping people feel happier, better adjust to life’s changes and improve their relationships.
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Miami, FL
Life is so busy. There are chores to do, work to do, you have to take care of the kids, and fix the car and see the in-laws. There seems to me so many things to do that time to focus on your relationship seems impossible. You might be feeling a little distant from your partner but think that this must be “normal”. You have been together so long, you are no longer in the honeymoon phase, right?
Becoming a mother might be one of the most hardest but transformative experiences of our lives. Nothing can really prepare you for all the changes that you experience, the challenges that arise but the immense love you have for your child. There are moments of pure joy, but also ones that test every part of your being. There are moments of, I can’t do this anymore. Am I the only feeling this? Why don’t I feel the same anymore. Know, Mama, you are not alone.
Anxiety impacts nearly 40 million adults. You are not alone. Anxiety can be a response to severe stress in our lives. Anxiety is our body’s response to what it believes to be a stressor or threat. It is our body’s way of alerting us that something is not okay. This might be helpful in smaller doses. It may allow you to persevere during challenging times, help you reach a deadline or let you know that you are taking on too much.
