When your past just won’t let you move forward

Maybe you left the relationship, but you can’t leave behind the words they said to you or the way they made you feel. Your relationship or your job ended and you feel hopeless and stuck and so sad. You are worried for your kids, who are acting out or withdrawing since big changes came to your family. Or you are afraid to repeat painful patterns from your childhood with your own children.

You tried so hard and things didn't work out. You know you don't want to repeat what you have been through, for you or your children, but you don't know how to make it different. It can start to feel hopeless when moving on doesn’t make you feel better.

Wherever you feel stuck, you don’t have to struggle alone.

There is a path forward, and I can help you find it.

Hi, I’m Bessie. I offer counseling for people of all ages: adults, adolescents, school-aged kids, and even expecting or new parents with their infants and toddlers. I help people to change patterns, break cycles, recover, and thrive. I create a safe space for you to explore what you’ve been through and how it changed you. I help parents learn how to support their kids. Together we will find the understanding and tools to free you to create the life you want to live.

She sits with her right elbow propped on the wooden armrest of the chair, leaning slightly forward, ready to listen to you with counseling in Fairbanks. She wears a blue shirt and jeans, and there is a maroon and green striped blanket over the chair behind her.
