You’re frustrated from not being able to communicate!
You’re missing your family and holed up at home uncertain of how to proceed forward. Maybe you have attempted social activities or are active in some way, but you still feel different due to having annoying deafness.
Perhaps you’ve always had to try harder to understand or be understood. Hearing loss can be progressive, it can be sudden, and it can also be lifelong for some people.
The road seems filled with isolation. You have now come to the right place!
The misunderstanding from others is incessant. Hearing loss is annoying and that is where hearing loss counseling can help.
You’re fed up and angry for being dealt this hand, as you wonder if this will improve!
“Is this the way life will be?” you wonder. Am I stuck with this?
If you have a hearing loss, you’ve also had to deal with that and annoying fiddling with hearing devices that don’t always work like they should.
You’re isolated as you find yourself unable to communicate with others. You’re frustrated and scared.
You start to wonder if you’re defective in some way and should just stop truly living. You’ve likely already stopped living the life you’ve thought you were going to live.
You’re feeling frustrated, overwhelmed, and worried. I can tell you that you are NOT ALONE. You ARE worthy!
I have helped with partial hearing loss, tools to help with it, and can help you navigate the journey, and includes multiple surprises in store. Hearing loss counseling and therapy can be the assistance you need.
You want fulfilling friendships, but the ringing and embarrassment of it all prevents you from enjoying being with people. You don’t even enjoy being with yourself, alone. It’s frightening.
You want a satisfying relationship, but the noise and lack of clarity are all consuming. These things don’t just come and go – they keep coming!
I offer you HOPE with hearing loss counseling and therapy!
My name is Patrick Tully, and I am an LMFT – a therapist that is trained to provide counseling and support for those struggling with their emotions and thoughts. I also have hearing loss. This experience of losing my hearing has given me a profound look at what it is like to go through these changes and challenges. I am based in Los Angeles and Pasadena, but licensed to provide therapy in all of California, Florida, and now Texas.

One of these stories might resonate with you:
Challenges come with wanting to hear better…
Jerry’s* cochlear implant bugged him. So did his hearing aid. He was tired of tinnitus and tired of uncertainty. Jerry* had wanted to simply hear better.
But Jerry* felt powerless. He didn’t want to admit that to just anyone. He felt he should know better and have control over his condition. But Jerry* realized things weren’t working. He reached out and in doing so, his hope was renewed.

Isolation frightened Andrea*.
She was worried her son’s partial hearing loss would affect his ability to function in the world. Her husband was not always supportive either. They were trying their best to learn about technologies available but were overwhelmed. Andrea* sat in fear every night, wondering and thinking and trying to visualize life as it once was. Andrea* felt guilty doing so as she did not want to burden her son or make him feel ashamed. Andrea* would soon learn from sessions with me that she was not alone! And she was able to gather tools and learn information about how to find information and tools to be informed, and also cope better with her natural and very valid feelings.
Frank,* her husband, would annoy her with talks of getting a hearing test. But Andrea* was afraid her fears would be confirmed, and she would need to wear an ill-fitted annoying hearing device like some of her friends.
Andrea* was desperate. So was Frank. They sought support from a therapist and were relieved. Therapy they thought was only for those who had problems, much worse than their own. Because they sought help, they started communicating well and their irritation toward each other diminished. Compassion developed – it had always been there, but irritation had stuffed it down, away from view.
The intimacy of their lives was once again in full motion, and their relationship included considerations for the hearing loss. Such changes to relating came easier with time. Andrea* was the same person she always was, and this hearing loss simply made things different. It actually added a layer of character, which was an unexpected surprise, and was less of a hassle and more of a curiosity.
