Feeling Stressed and Overwhelmed?

Do you ever feel like you’re consumed with life’s demands? Like you’re so busy tending to work deadlines, childcare needs, school requirements, social engagements, that by the time you’re done there is no time left to pour into your needs. If we aren’t mindful about what we are doing or how we are allocating our energy, we may inevitably lose ourselves and the beauty of life around us. Did you know that Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) teaches skills needed to be more mindful about our daily practices... to be intentional in the way we express our needs and boundaries with others, and to accept our everyday realities?

According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, stress can have a variety of impacts

on a person’s physical and mental wellbeing. By identifying the cause of stress, individuals take the first step in being able to alleviate the negative impacts brought on by stress and re-establish a sense of control.

At Compass of Hope Counseling, we have worked with clients who are overwhelmed and unsure of how to manage stress brought on by their overwhelming responsibilities. Whether you need help identifying the source of your stress, support in setting boundaries for yourself and others, or need help in identifying coping skills to help you along the way, we are ready to help!

Wishing you the best,

Kelley Lebrecht, Intern Therapist
