MOVING FORWARD IN YOUR LIFE
Melody Jones Counseling
Support That Makes a Difference
Embrace Life’s Challenges
Life throws many surprises and changes at us. These can be planned or unplanned, joyful or sad, easy or challenging, temporary or permanent. Yet all of them can be disconcerting and all of them can leave us struggling to move forward. I can help you to identify your strengths, work towards acceptance, and to discover approaches that work for you to handle the changes in your life. I encourage you to contact me and we can talk about the next step.
Live Confidently and Authentically
Members of the LGBTQIA+ community often face different challenges in life than folks who are in the heteronormative community. Blatant discrimination as well as covert microagressions can be a daily occurrence. I can work with you to identify systems and personal feelings that may be contributing to feelings of isolation. Family beliefs, their feelings, and their actions can also be sources of distress. Relationships and parenting that are normally private, can become part of larger public discussions in our society. All of these situations can add to the everyday stress of living. I would welcome the chance to talk with you about moving forward.
WOMEN AND THE WORKPLACE
Women may struggle with their own unique changes and challenges in their careers. Sometimes women, particularly in the IT and engineering environments, are isolated and struggle with being heard in the workplace. As a former software developer, I have experienced some of these issues and been labeled as a resource. While some environments are improving, others are not. If you are a parent, this brings an added layer of stress and struggle (and joy!). I would love to work with you to identify your strengths to help you move forward.
GRIEF AND LOSS
Moving Towards Acceptance
Sometimes feelings of grief have a clear source such as a death, health change, or a relationship loss. Other times it feels murkier and you’re simply left with a feeling of loss or unease. But no matter the source, you’re feeling stuck. I encourage you to reach out and we can talk about how to work with these feelings.
Counseling Professional: MA, NCC, LPCC
Hello! If you’re here, then you may be stuck. Or questioning. Or overwhelmed. All of these can leave you feeling like you've lost your way. I would welcome the opportunity to work with you to get you moving forward.
I feel that everyone has an inner compass to help them move through their life. Our focus will be to find your path to moving forward. I will work to understand your perspective and your world. I will bring a feminist perspective and a lifetime of experiences into our work.
I work with individuals over the age of 18. Within our sessions, I can bring in the ideas of automatic thoughts and beliefs as well as dig a little deeper into the parts of our lives that have created these thoughts and beliefs. Through changes in my own life, I have become aware of the internalized beliefs that can affect our abilities to live authentically and confidently.
The world is changing rapidly, technology brings a level of anxiety into our lives that can be difficult to handle. Demands and expectations of family and friends can increase our stress. Finding your direction and authentic self can help to ease the way forward.
