Angela Barraza, MEd., LPC

Sometimes it is ok not to feel ok. 

Do you feel angry and not completely understand why?  Have you ever been in a room full of people and yet you still feel alone? 

Do your thoughts spiral until you feel extremely exhausted?  Is stress keeping you from falling asleep at night? 

Sometimes life is overwhelming, and we just want to stay in bed hidden under our covers.

Although you may feel this way now, remember that there are things that we can do to change the way we feel.

You are not alone and all it takes is one healthy relationship to completely rewire our brain and help build resilience.
