Integrative Psychotherapy and Focused Mindfulness

Help for smart people who can't stop

thinking about the past...

"I'm never going to get over this..."

"I'm just slogging from day to day; nothing excites me anymore."

"I wake up in the middle of the night, feeling scared and knotted up... and in the morning I'm exhausted!"

"I shouldn't feel this way."

"I'm just not enough..."

"Just thinking about the day ahead shuts me down." 

Buddhists call it suffering...

 ...preoccupation with a broken heart that just won't mend, disappointments or betrayals that you can't seem to shake, chronic fear and worry, even the loss of self-trust and joy.

Emotional pain – being wounded by an event in your life – has always been part of being human.  Not one of us is exempt.
But sometimes, instead of eventually becoming less painful, an event follows you – haunting, waking you at night, dramatically altering your life.  At these times it can feel like it's never going to change, that you'll never feel better.    

I don't know about you, but I think life is already tough enough without having thoughts and feelings that make you feel this bad.  It's possible to work your way through difficulties and to go beyond the suffering.

If you've shared how you're feeling with a friend or family member, you may have gotten a lot of "helpful" advice that didn't feel so good, or that just missed the mark, no matter how well-intended.  You might have had the experience of someone close to you becoming impatient with your "moods" – which only made you feel worse.

Don't waste another day of your life feeling this way.

There are ways to turn around how you feel.  The heavy self-talk, the thoughts and old memories that make your life feel more difficult and lonely, even that murky discomfort in your belly can all be shifted.  You can learn how to show up for yourself and pay loving attention to what's bothering you, what you're really feeling, and what you need to do to feel better. You can find an island of peace in all this turbulence.

I can promise... 

Your inner healing journey is a rich opportunity for exploration and self-discovery.  You will have the opportunity to learn new skills and solutions for what's bothering you now, as well as to develop personal strengths and resources you can use for the rest of your life.



I’m Betsy Wright Loving, a therapist in Arlington, Washington.
