She was emotionally drained from keeping up with the demands of her child. With little support from her partner, she was fearful to let others care for her child, yet ready to go back to work. This anxiety interrupted sleep, causing irritability with her son. The guilt of this only made matters worse. As a nursing mom, she did not want to take sleeping or anti-anxiety medications.
After working with Dr. Kreisberg for three months, Chrissy was more relaxed. Her sleep improved and her moods. Her son successfully started daycare. She found a circle of women with whom she could rely on. She learned not only how much she needed to reach out and create connections, but also how to take care of herself through proper nutrition and meditation. She was able to return to work as a message therapist.
