Good communication skills, healthy boundaries and limits, and realistic expectations of yourself and others are all key components to forming healthy relationships. Anger management and relapse prevention services are also available.

It is very difficult to lose someone you love. You may feel lonely, lost and isolated. Brightside Counseling offers the education/support you need through this difficult time.The type of loss you experience matters on your response and can feel traumatic.
