I work with clients of diverse backgrounds on a multitude of concerns. My approach is, at times, directive, yet always curious, nonjudgmental, collaborative, and validating.

Everything, nothing, siblings, parents, pets, and honesty anything. You have to understand it and try to find a way to distract yourself from the sadness.

A person is sad for different reasons, maybe he's hurt , maybe the person he loves Is hurt, maybe he lost someone and maybe there is no reason.

Negative thoughts or negative life events or situations or a chemical imbalance. It can be any one or combination of those 3.

Different things can make a person sad. Not everyone reacts the same way to everything that they see. What makes me sad, might not make you sad.

There are many things that can make a person sad. For instance, loss of a loved one. Doing bad in school can make someone sad as well. There are a ton of things that can make someone sad but always remember to keep your head up and try your hardest to get through the day.

There are so many reasons as to why a person can be sad. Perhaps they didn't get the job they wanted, maybe they got rejected by someone, perhaps even there a bereavement in the family. Sadness is a feeling that everyone experiences at some point during their lifetime. Some may experience it more often than others, though sadness/negative experiences are said to make a person stronger. Sometimes, a lot of things happening at once can make us sad, or our expectations were not met for something. The list is endless: every person experiences sadness differently, be it through a relationship, work, personal matters or general mental health.
