    Psychologist Dr. Carol Francis Addressing Empty-Nest Syndrome

    in Self Help

    Empty Nest Syndrome on Dr. Carol Francis Talk Radio, August 30. Mothers and fathers who dedicated the last 18 plus years of moneys, marital bliss, prodding, laughing and sweating through parenting confusions launch their college students out of the house. Relief and parenting pride intermix with loss, depression and sense of “now what.” Dr. Carol Francis as a Clinical Psychologist has helped teens and parents successfully move to this day. Empty-Nesting is for real and Dr. Carol Francis for over 37 years has helped parents regroup after their household becomes quiet and their time is once again their own. Program is available on podcast and archived at this link as well on Dr. Carol Francis Talk Radio.


    The primary caretaker, still typically mothers, are the ones most suffering from this sense of loss. Empty Nesters feel depressed, frequently crying. Beyond the loss and this type of bereavement, Empty Nesters experience a type of existential crisis. This “now what” reflects a type of meaninglessness. “Effectively, raising children is all-consuming. Every minute become consumed raising the child by either doing, planning, thinking, worrying, helping, struggling, and losing sleep. Now, suddenly, those children are not dependent and not needing the daily demands, at least in the western world,” explains Dr. Carol Francis.


    “Unless the Empty Nester create sdynamically enjoyable and meaningful activities which replace the importance and time-consuming nature of parent, the Empty Nester is doomed to confusion, feeling impotent, unimportant, devalued; bottom line the parent feels completely empty,” describes Psychologist Dr. Carol Francis in Los Angeles South Bay area at 310-543-1824.

    Depression Thoughts & Feelings of Darkness Dr Carol Francis

    in Psychology

    Depression, sadness, grief, tearfulness--yes these are reactions to life that are genuine and inevitable at certain junctions. Death of loved-ones, divorce, disasterous losses, romantic failures, shared empathy with other sufferers, etc., are part of every life and no one is left untouched by such depressing moments.  When can depression migrate into a condition of your brain, your thoughts, your personality so you become enslaved to the master of depression?  When does sadness become your black cloud that you never escape?  When do you create those situations and relationships that perpetuate your dark moods, pessimisms, depression and negativity?  More importantly, how can you come out of the cave of depression when it immobilizes you and renders you motionless and motivation-less?  What are the steps you must take to free you up from being victimized by your own enslavement to the lure of depression?  This program examines some of these ideas--at least what 30 minutes can share.  Oodles of research and 32 years of giving effective therapy fighting against depression- and seeing recovery with many  patients and also living life authentically--and in touch (with plenty of experience with many dimensions of life and how it can cause depression), Dr. Carol Francis, Psychologist will walk us through depression recovery steps, models and options.  Call ahead 310-543-1824 and leave your questions.  drcarolfrancis.com, doctorcarolfrancis.com, relationshipsuccessnow.com, evolvingwomensconsciousness.com.
