In the Flow with Healing Waters


Taking care of our graduates

It’s high school graduation time! This rite of passage event can create many emotions for the graduate. Even though it’s been 40+ years since I’ve graduated from high school, I remember the feelings of fear, excitement, and uncertainty of my future. Just as those fears were my reality way back then, many of the graduating seniors of 2024 have the same concerns, but in some ways, I think today’s kids have more pressures than what I had back in the day. It’s such a pivotal time in their life. Everything that they knew, is changing. 

If the graduate in your life is anxious, fearful, hesitant, depressed, uncertain or not excited about this next chapter in their life, I encourage you to talk with them to let them know that it is normal to feel this way and that you understand that change can be challenging. Offer suggestions of support to get to the root cause of these feelings. If the traditional therapies aren’t what you’re looking for, make an appointment with us and we can do some amazing things and offer tools that will last a lifetime to empower and create calm in their life. The same holds true for parents who are having trepidation about their kids going away in the fall. We always have FREE 30-minute discovery appointments for anyone who wants to come in to learn about what we do and if we are a good fit for you. 

“Floundering in a pool of hesitation and trepidation constitutes stagnation. You can’t rise from the ashes if you refuse to walk through the fire.”  David Roppo

If you are the parent, grandparent, friend or are in contact with an upcoming high school graduate, ask how they are doing. Remember how it was when you graduated and understand that they may not be on the same path as you were back then. Realize that your dreams aren’t theirs. They are becoming adults with a lot to learn. Mistakes will be made. Sometimes, failure can cause a feeling of despair. Enduring failure will build character, teach resilience, adaptability and how to overcome obstacles. Be supportive during this transitional time. 

Being supportive in the flow,
