Your mind goes non-stop even when you try to rest or sleep. Your palms get sweaty and your heart starts to race whenever you're on the spot at work. And no matter what you tell yourself, you can't seem to quell the nerves.
You know that there must be a way to heal from the anxiety, if you could just have the supportive environment and the right tools to put into practice.
This is where holistic therapy comes in. I've helped hundreds of women like you once and for all find relief from anxiety.
It's beyond having high standards for yourself. It's expecting perfection in every aspect of your life -- your looks, your work, in your relationships. And it effects your self-esteem, ability to get things done and your connection with others.
What if you could recover from perfectionism while maintaining high (but reasonable!) standards for yourself? It's possible to get at the root cause of perfectionism and gain peace.
Therapy can help you address the underlying issues of self-love and validation-seeking, so that perfectionism loses its grip on you.
Is your sense of self-worth tied up in your accomplishments and how others view you? Do you have a harsh inner critic who points out every mistake you make? Do you feel worthless when you take a day to rest?
You may be struggling with self-esteem issues. Healthy self-worth is stable and not tied to external circumstances or others' opinions.
In working with a therapist, you'll begin to practice unconditional self-love and reduce your dependence on praise from those around you. Self-love is possible. Begin your journey today.
"Big T" trauma refers those major negative events such as abuse, a car accident or a disaster. "Little t" trauma is the accumulation of emotional paper-cuts over the years such as being emotionally rejected by a parent.
Trauma is any event or experience that overwhelms our capacity to cope. We all have trauma to one extent to another as no one gets through life unscathed. No trauma is too big or too small to be addressed in therapy.
As a trauma-informed therapist, I help clients finally heal from their trauma.
Do your needs always come last? Do you feel intense guilt when saying "no" to others? Have you found yourself feeling resentful to your friends and family for asking too much of you?
If so, you may be dealing with people-pleasing and codependency issues. The good news is people-pleasing is learned behavior and can also be un-learned.
Therapy tools such as identifying your own needs and setting boundaries make a world of difference. I can help you recover from people-pleasing and begin to put your own needs first.
Has a stressful job or life situation left you feeling exhausted and cynical? You might be thinking that modern life is untenable. It might be difficult for you to see the point in working so hard.
You might be experiencing burnout. It's quite common and is treatable. With the right environmental shifts, support and self-care practices you can get back to yourself again.
Through behavior change, boundaries, mindfulness and self-compassion you'll be able to move through burnout and regain your energy and zest for life.
