About Melissa Spaulding | CMHC
Therapy in St. George, UT
One of the most difficult things about your struggle is that you feel all alone with it. It is hard to share it with others especially when they know you as the girl-who-can-do-it-all. That disconnect from others is painful but even worse is the disconnect you feel from yourself.
I’m talking about the pain of how you imagine or remember yourself to be and then the reality of what’s happening right now: the depression, the anxiety, the overwhelm, the stress… It can make you question everything you thought you knew about yourself. Sometimes you’re not sure who you are or what you want.
As a counselor, my first goal is for you to walk into my office and breathe a deep sigh of relief, certain that help is on it’s way and reassured that no, you are not crazy. Never will I make assumptions about you or your lifestyle. Never will I make light of your story. You matter and you will be empowered with a process and tools to take healing into your own hands
What you’ll get from me is plenty of curiosity and the enthusiasm that comes with knowing that this struggle is not forever. Your emotions don’t have to run all over you. We can take charge of this together.
I believe that life is meant to be an adventure. For me, that means trail running half marathons, burning the occasional gluten-free pizza in the oven and becoming a licensed therapist. Some days it means digging into the latest book (if my kiddos allow time for that!) or a training that helps me bring even more skills, strategies and research into our sessions. But for you adventure might mean shaking off your anxiety to ask for what you really want in your relationship or stepping into a new phase of your life unafraid.
Whatever your goal is, counseling can help you get there. Call for a free 15 minute consultation and we’ll clarify what your hopes are. Based on that, I can give you all the information you need to make a decision about whether or not counseling is the next step for you.
