This was supposed to be the happiest time of your life
But it’s shaping up to be one of the hardest.
You know you want to marry your fiance, but you're feeling out of sorts.
Yet you're moody and anxious. Stressed
You’re feeling vulnerable. Not quite yourself.
You’re in emotional pain sometimes, but you can’t put a finger on why.
You’re over-analyzing everything, which is exhausting.
You can't tell anybody, because you don't want to give them a bad impression of your relationship.
You consider calling off your wedding, just to make the confusion and pain go away. But that doesn't feel right, either.
Your working hard to feel better, but you're worried
You’re hyper-critical of your fiancé, finding flaws in him that never mattered before.
You’re sad and nostalgic about growing up and leaving childhood, daughterhood, and singlehood behind.
You’re worried about how marriage will change you.
You feel unprepared to become a wife.
You wonder if you and your fiancé know how to have a successful, lifelong marriage.
You worry that you’re the only bride-to-be that feels this way.
What you need is information
About the normal, natural psychological processes going on within you right now.
As you make a major transition in your identity. From single woman to married woman. From girlfriend to wife. From daughter to wife.
This transition can often arouse uncomfortable and powerful feelings of anxiety, fear, sadness, mourning, anger.
Feelings that DO NOT reflect what you thought it would be like to be a bride-to-be.
Imagine having a really good grasp on what's going on for you right now
Imagine having greater self-understanding.
Imagine knowing that these difficult feelings are meaningful and purposeful for your personal growth.
Imagine having more tools to help yourself when you are feeling stressed, anxious, sad, overwhelmed.
Imagine turning the emotional tone of your engagement around...to the positive.
Imagine feeling authentically happy.
If you are sick and tired of feeling upset...
If you’re willing to roll up your sleeves and do a little emotional digging with me, you’ll be able to calm down, get clear-minded, explore and analyze and feel happy and better prepared for marriage.
If this sounds like you.....Let me help.
"I've been to several therapists, and Allison is unquestionably the best: the most insightful,
the most non-judgmental, and the most solution-oriented. She is the only therapist I've felt comfortable enough to be really honest with.
Allison has been a safe harbor and a voice of reason during my transition to 'bride.' Don't hesitate to contact her. Ultimately, the peace of mind you'll feel when you know you've made the right decision is well worth the investment in yourself. "- R.M.
