"To become a better version of ourselves, we must first let go of fears and skepticisms" - Joan Bowla, MSW -  Life & Wellness Coach

Are you divorced and need help and guidance to balance work, parenting, and a social life? Divorce can be a painful experience leaving you scared, confused and stressed. It can affect the way you think, feel, and react to everyone in your life. Know that you are not alone. I have been there too and have acquired the knowledge, skills, and expertise to help you master your skills to regain balance. Using a combination of holistic, supportive, and emotional regulation techniques I will help you through the process.  

Shame dies when secrets are told in a safe place”

There was a point in my life when I felt that I had to internalize all my fears, my pain, my hurt and my struggles.  I was too embarrassed to let anyone know what I was going through for fear that I might be looked at as weak or as a failure.  I did not realize that not talking about my struggles made me angry, bitter, critical, resentful, anxious, and depressed.   I felt no one understood my struggles. I was unable to control my emotions and I lashed out at people who did not deserve it.

I started my career in Social Work/Counseling and grasped the concepts of “if you don’t heal from what cut you, you will bleed on people who didn’t cut you” and “hurt people, hurt people”.  I slowly started opening up to others about my struggles and learned effective ways of healing from the pain that kept me stuck.

Today, I am no longer shameful of my experiences and am very passionate about sharing my story with others about how I was able to overcome the challenges of a divorce, single parenting, job loss, financial loss, and deaths of loved ones.  Today, I can truly say I have reached the point of no return having gained the knowledge and skills to regulate my thoughts and emotions resulting in better decisions, better choices and positive outcomes. 

 

With over 10 years of experience helping others with similar struggles, I will be able to help you too.   I can relate and I am here for you.  I have learned that "nothing changes, if nothing changes"

“Change the changeable, accept the unchangeable, and remove yourself from the unacceptable”

Today, we will say the Serenity Prayer -   “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference”.  

Remember, there are some things we will never be able to change such as our past experiences, but we have the power to use our past experiences to guide the way we think and act.   Today,  let’s not get overwhelmed with the past. Instead, let us focus our energy on exploring ways we can avoid making the same mistakes, and improve our lives and our relationships with others.
