Tonya Strand, LICSW
In her own words…
Things can get better.
As we all know life often has unexpected and unwanted challenges that we as women are forced to face. Sometimes these challenges come at really difficult times in our lives or the burdens are so great that we cannot face them alone. Or maybe our previous ways of coping with suffering are no longer working. Building new coping skills, obtaining new perspectives and facing the challenges with someone who cares can build and instill the hope that things can and will get better.
It’s hard, but important work.
The best views are often from the top of the mountain, after you have worked really hard by climbing all the way to the top. The climb is often the hardest part. Working on ourselves or our relationships or dealing with overwhelming feelings can feel this way sometimes, like climbing a mountain. It can be challenging, but there is always a reward at the end. That reward will be different for everyone, but a very worthwhile endeavor.”
