To live means life will change—and often, in the moment, this change does not always feel for the better. There is no ‘how-to’ workbook to re-adjust after divorce, separation, loss, set-back, and situational or cumulative life stress—and if that book exists, please, don’t buy it. Why? Because each life story has its own special circumstances and roadmap to recovery. Finding that place of adjustment to life change and stress is actually chiropractic in the sense that it is a re-alignment—the difference being, that under the guidance of therapy, it is a re-alignment takes place within one’s own life.
It seems far too often someone gets labeled as having ‘anxiety’—but how does that help? We all experience anxiety to some level—much of which can actually be helpful. There is a world of difference though in addressing obsessive-compulsive traits, phobias, panic attacks, and social, situational, and generalized anxiety. Recognizing these differences fuels the energy during session work, because no two persons are the same; and so when thoughtful examination of what is making the anxiety and fear ‘tick,’ then each presentation is often very manageable and treatable in the scope of individualized care.
Understanding what is causing depression can be a big first step—be it neurobiology, life circumstances, or both. Mapping these underlying causes, while addressing how to change the current presentation (how is your life being impacted in the here and now) is vital to addressing the issue. Depression only marks a state of being—it is not you—and conditions change…even ones that seem stagnate. There is a plethora of ways for externalizing depression outside of the self, so that its weight can be managed, reduced, and a sense of living from beyond its grasp can be experienced.
Be it the loss of a loved one, work, or a way of living and relating to the world, the reality of grappling with grief and loss touches all livable events. Finding a way to cope can be difficult given the roller coaster of emotions and circumstances these events often bring into focus. However, in helping cultivate intention, awareness, and patience during this process, the less likely grief is to develop into something more challenging to bear. That said, I am especially passionate about the therapeutic work of dealing with traumatic loss and complicated grief, because I’ve seen, that once the weight is lifted, the former pressure has now turned sadness into beauty.
