“Emma struggled with separation anxiety, and cried all the time about not being “normal”. She struggled in school and had to go to the counselors office to help her cope and make it through the day. She was missing class all the time, and was always having to make up work. She was self conscious, and as a mom I was worried about her being made fun of and the impact that would have socially.
Emma really wouldn’t leave her room. She was sad, and stressed from all the school work she had to make up. When I had to leave and go to activities, she would cry and hold on to me. Someone would have to physically pull her off of me. She missed out on a lot because of her stress and anxiety. She was on 3 medications, taking 8 pills every day.
After starting care at Congruent Life, we noticed a difference in her happiness right away. We stopped her tick medication pretty soon after starting. After 2 months we decreased the other meds, and after several months she is COMPLETELY OFF ALL HER MEDICATIONS!!
What does life look like for Emma now? A couple months ago she went to a friend’s house and spent the night, she was SO proud! She is happier, and no longer has a facial tick. She is going to school FULL days and doesn’t have to go to the counselors office. She’s more confident, and she even tried out & performed in the school talent show ALONE in front of the whole school! She’s even thinking about getting into b-ball this year! Emma can just be a regular kid and be more social without anxiety or fear!”
