A breakup can take an otherwise perfectly sane, happy person and turn them into a sad, quivering mess.
In my practice, I see a lot of these transformations.
I get at least several new clients every week who are so traumatized by a difficult break up that they have decided to seek therapy for the first time.
For people in their early twenties, the breakup may be the end of their first significant, meaningful, adult relationship.
Make a special mix of great breakup songs to keep you motivated.
