Path to Hope Counseling
Helping you Live a Mindful Life
Are you facing your first major life transition? You may be transitioning to college or getting your first job and figuring out "adulting" and all the stressors that brings as a young adult. You have a fear of failure and aren't sure you can trust yourself to make the best decision to move forward. You are uncertain about what direction you want to go in and wonder if you are on the right career path.
You feel easily overwhelmed and you've been struggling with worry for so long, you don't remember what your life was like without it. It causes issues in your relationship, your job and your friendships. You feel others are always judging you and its hard to feel confident in yourself. You keep your feelings locked away and have a difficult time opening up to others. You find yourself saying "yes" and agreeing to demands and requests from friends and family even though you know its not what you want to do. You want to please others and be liked but it is at a cost to your own mental, physical and spiritual health.
You find yourself thinking:
"What if I never get better?'
"Will I ever get this under control?"
"What if I make a mistake?"
"What if I am not good enough?"
You end up feeling alone, unable to move forward in your life and meet each day with feelings of overwhelm. You are not sure what else to do to manage your life or your anxiety. In reality, you deserve a life where you are not just surviving, but thriving. You deserve freedom from fear and a life of peace and contentment.
If you don't take action, things can get worse and this can cause more issues in your relationships and cause you to isolate more and feel disconnected. You will continue to beat yourself up and your self-esteems plummets. It gets harder for you to speak up for yourself and people continue to take advantage of you leaving you resentful and exhausted. This causes you to withdraw more from those supports that you need most.
Your days could end up being filled with worry and realizing you will never reach the goals you set out for yourself. Or you could reach out for help and start down the path to hope. Relief is closer than you think!

Special notice regarding COVID-19
In response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak across the world, and in keeping with recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, we encourage all of our clients to limit exposure to large groups, frequent handwashing and keep social distancing from others (six feet) in order to help contain the spread of the virus. Online therapy offers a safe and efficient solution by allowing you to keep your appointment despite the chaos that COVID-19 may be causing in your life.
UPDATE: 4/28/21 Since many clients and clinicians are getting vaccinated and the numbers are dropping for our local area in Raleigh, NC, Chris McDonald is offering part time in person sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Regina Gould and Meredith Van Rensburg are only providing telehealth.
Online therapy will allow for the health and safety of our clients and our Clinicians. Online sessions are easily accessible through our online patient portal. You just need a webcam and a microphone. Phone Counseling is also being approved by insurance so all clients can access services through phone if video is not available. Many states have made changes in policy and if you are out of state contact us to see if we are able to provide services through COVID 19 based on your state guidelines.
