Solution Focused Therapy for Mental Health
Becoming an adult is hard work-there is so much to learn and do (and this learning never stops)! Anytime we are learning and growing there are bound to be mistakes and frustrations along the way, especially during the transition to adulthood, pregnancy, lactation, and the postpartum and early parenting periods. When this leads to feelings of overwhelm, anxiety, depression, irritability, or hopelessness (which are commonly seen during these times), focusing on solutions and clearly determining and communicating your goals, hopes, and aspirations can help you find your path to success and mental wellbeing. What would your life be like without the stress and challenges at hand?
