AUTISM and “DISENFRANCHISED GRIEF”

Being a teacher and a counselor of children on the Autism Spectrum in Orlando, I have had the opportunity and the honor to work with some very brave and wonderful families. I have noticed over the years that one thing rings true among the families that I work with when they first come to see […]

NO MAN IS AN ISLAND

One valuable lesson that I have learned in my life is that people often carry burdens that are comfortingly similar to the struggles that other people have survived. Deep and indescribable discontent; disconnectedness with the people around you; love and lovelessness; lack of direction and desire for meaning; these feelings, along with their inverses, are […]

I HAVE A BABY …… NOW WHAT?

It seems like many of my friends are pregnant or new parents. Pregnancy is an exciting time, where you have so many wishes and dreams for your child. You imagine how they will be as adults, and what kind of people they will become. In those moments, you don’t generally imagine arguing with your child […]

VIEWPOINTS

As a counselor at Life Skills Resource Group in Orlando, I meet many people and hear lots of different perspectives expressed, especially about the rightness or wrongness of others.When I was a young girl, I used to listen to adult conversations around me.I heard lots of judging and criticizing in those conversations.Often, it seems, people […]

KIDS HAVE STRESS TOO ……

As an Orlando counselor I often meet with children who are experiencing stress and anxiety. Counseling Today, an American Counseling Association publication, in its March 2010 issue addressed the topic of stress and kids.

I don’t think there is a single person reading this that can’t vividly remember the anticipation on the last day of school before summer break. Elbows pressed against the desktop, butt already […]

WORKING FOR THE WEEKENDS

I often speak about how excited I am for the weekend to come. It is great to have time to spend with your family and to complete important tasks, and most of all to relax. However, sometimes I feel that always wishing for the weekend can make me not appreciate the good times that I […]

HAVE YOU LOST SOMETHING?

Loss is something every one of us experiences in our lifetime. Even though we all experience it, we may not know how to effectively cope with or grow from it. Several of the counselors at Life Skills Resource Group in Orlando are skilled in helping people learn how to do just that. People often think […]

COUNSELING FROM A “YOUTHFUL” PERSPECTIVE

Maybe you’ve seen me or have heard my voice, but probably not much of both at the same time. My name is Garrett Fabico, and Cindy Fabico, founder of Life Skills Resource Group, is my mother. It’s been that way since 1988. Recently though, she also became my employer and I became her loyal desk […]
