I enjoy working with individuals of all capacities as I view the role of therapist as one in which you help the client learn to cope with the pressures of daily life.

Sometimes, if you are really upset; your dreams can be affected too, you just can't seem to handle your emotions and you don't know what to do! Sometimes, waking up to reality is extra difficult.

Either due to not enough sleep, emotional exhaustion from the night before (from a trauma/sense of loss), depression.

Because you have a lot on your mind. You should try and relax and remove any negative thoughts from your mind before you sleep, so that when you wake up you feel fresh, well rested and positive.

Probably because you went to bed feeling low, too. It's important to reflect on your situation before you go to bed so that you don't wake up feeling terrible.

This can happen when your dreaming about disturbing things.. If you were sad or stressed prior to sleeping, then your dreams will reflect your waking emotions. Those reflections can stay with you when you wake, making you feel sad the moment you wake.

It's common in depression. Consult someone close to you about this an get help. It could be from a lack of sleep, too.

Try waking up with the intention of noticing pleasant things around you through out the day, be remember the things you are grateful for and and do things that make you feel happy. Remember that there's a lot of nice things happening and that you have a lot of power to change your situation if you want to. What are the things you would like to experience?

You could be having sleeping problems that prevent you from getting a good rest. Some problems that affect sleep are depression, insomnia, restless legs syndrome and so on.

The sun is bright I will see you soon But I'm missing you now Like I miss the moon You're why I get up You're why I smile Every day to see me You walk three miles You'd give me your heart If mine stopped beating You'd give me your blood If I couldn't stop bleeding My heart is like water And you are the cup I sleep without you As the night lingers by So I cry when I wake And that, dear, is why

You may feel low after the moment you open your eyes and wake up because you were extremely tired the night before, not getting a good night sleep or even not being able to fall asleep till later in the night.
