Some Factors Affecting Singles…

According to recent statistics, 45.2% of the US population was classified as “single” and that number continues to grow yearly. As more and more individuals find themselves “Single”, hopefully the misconceptions and stigmas that are associated with this population will also change. Single individuals deal with many factors that are very unique, that married people and couples are not aware off and may even take for granted. Many individuals are single by circumstances, such as separation or divorce, while some are widowed, but there is also a large group of single individual who are “singe”...

Table for One

As a Singles Therapist I get asked certain questions more often than others. Some of those questions can go something like this, how can I do certain things by myself. How does one graduate to eating and dinning alone? And how can I go on vacation alone? These are just a few of the questions, I hear from individuals that are struggling with single-hood. While others are able to navigate and continue to maintain a sense of self, many others will continue to struggle. Being single does not mean that one should stop living life. Yes, I agree that the world is definitely not set up for a party...

Oh, How I Dread the Holidays……

I have written about the Holiday Blues in the past, but this year I decided to change it up a bit. I have a candid interview from a previous client on her emotions during the holidays. The holiday blues is the term that is widely used to describe this time particular frame. It’s a period of time that sadness, loneliness, and anxiety can occur. More specifically to individuals who may be single or those who do not have family in their immediate surroundings. These emotions are usually seasonal and can take a toll on individuals during a time, when the rest of the world seems to be in...
