Darien is a single dad with a hectic schedule. He works as a contractor and his daughters, aged six and ten, keep him busy with school, playdates, and afternoon activities. His mornings are spent preparing breakfast and packing lunches, getting his children ready for school, and driving to the office. His nights are spent fixing dinner, helping with homework, and tucking his girls into bed.
Darien is happy but stressed. Sometimes he feels like there just aren’t enough hours in the day. To add to this, Darien has always had anxiety issues that make it difficult to feel comfortable asking friends and family for help or advice. He’d love to talk to someone but he isn’t sure he has the time for it.
After years of trying to do everything by himself, Darien feels as though he’s breaking down. His boss notices and kindly suggests that Darien schedules an appointment to see someone. He contacts Thriveworks in Temecula, CA and signs up for an online therapy appointment.
Two days later, Darien has a video session with a licensed mental health professional about his anxiety and his desire to calm his symptoms so he can be more present for his family. He and his counselor review planning strategies and coping exercises that are designed to help him cope with his anxious feelings.
In time, Darien is able to better organize his day and to feel less overwhelmed by the unexpected. He stops overpromising and reaches out to his network for support when needed. He even talks to his counselor about seeking family therapy to strengthen his relationship with his daughters.
We understand that life gets busy and making time isn’t always easy.
