Estelle & Gabriel


Living with chronic pain and learning from doctors that it would likely not improve was devastating for Estelle. Her exhaustion from the pain was affecting her marriage, family relationships, and the active lifestyle she once enjoyed. Falling into depression, she knew she needed professional help to manage these difficult emotions and changes in her life. She and her husband, Gabriel, began meeting with a Catholic Charities counselor. “It was a matter of helping Estelle accept that there were things she couldn’t do anymore. We talked about things she enjoyed and could still do. Although I couldn’t help with her physical pain, I could help her look at life in a new way, focus on her strengths, and find the support she needed” her counselor reflects. While Estelle is coping better and finished her counseling sessions, Gabriel decided to continue in her place meeting with the counselor. They are both benefiting from healthier, more positive relationships with each other and their family.
