By Rebecca Horch, BACYC, CPC READING TIME: 6 minutes One of the questions I often ask clients is “Who were you before the world told you who you had to be?” I’m usually asking this when we’re exploring concepts of life purpose and core values. I’m not one who believes that our values have to […]

By Rebecca Horch, BACYC, CPC READING TIME: 4 MINUTES Is it a problem to be solved or a feeling that needs support? This is the question I’ve learned to ask myself when it comes to my kids, my friendships, my relationship, and my clients. The answer isn’t always as clear as you think it should […]

By Brittany Moffitt, LICSW You know that feeling, don’t you? The one that’s perfectly summed up in an N’SYNC lyric: “It’s tearin’ up my heart when I’m with you, but when we are apart, I feel it too. And no matter what I do, I feel the pain, with or without you”. It’s a feeling […]
By Sarah Gyampoh, LMSW We’ve all been there before…something we said or did affected someone we care about. And we realize that it is our responsibility to apologize to them and make things right.

At the end of May 2019, we wrapped up the first birth trauma therapy group here at Wellness & Co. For eight weeks, four mamas learned; developed relationships; processed through hurt, pain, abandonment, and anger; and worked on forgiving themselves for not making choices they might have made had they felt empowered to do so. It was a privilege for me to watch them work through their struggles together, especially as a survivor of birth trauma myself. It was amazing to watch a mother soften in her judgement of herself and also feel completely accepted by those around her, something that these women admitted to previously not feeling very often, if ever.
When I started seeing clients in Maryland five years ago I noticed that people often had the same comments or questions regarding the therapeutic process. They typically go something like this: “but you haven’t experienced [parenting] so you don’t really know what its like,” “you must have the perfect marriage,” “I didn’t want to come because people in therapy have real problems and ours isn’t a problem,” “I figured that if I came to therapy once a week something would change”
….these types of comments and more go on and on. In short, people think ALL sorts of things about therapy.
Do you ever feel like your relationship is stuck? Running on autopilot? Or completely thrown off course?
I get it, I really do. I want you to know that if you answered yes to any of those questions, you’re normal. Your relationship is totally, 100%, normal.
We all get stuck. We all let our relationships run on cruise control without the proper love and attention they need. And, we all let our partnerships run off course. All of us, even therapists.
