I will help you to rally against that critical or panicked inner voice. I will help you stop comparing yourself unfavorably to others. Don't suffer with this alone... shame and self-loathing flourish in isolation. Our feelings about ourselves form the basis of our relationships with others - and our overall life satisfaction. As our self-image improves, other aspects of our lives often begin to fall into place.
Are you feeling stuck,? Have you lost confidence in yourself... or never felt confident?
I will help you take stock of your relationships, values, life circumstances, and your priorities.
Together we will work to uncover what blocks you, and open you up to new possibilities that were not previously apparent.
I understand the effects of growing up in an unhealthy or toxic family environment.
Unfortunately, many of us were raised in less than optimal family environments, and the negative impact may continue into our adult years. If you were raised by a parent(s) whose needs consistently came before your own, you may have a hard time identifying your own needs, feelings, and preferences. Even worse, you may not feel that they matter.
If you were raised by a parents who were too unstable, ill, addicted, or absent to properly attend to your childhood needs, you may need help learning to care for and regulate yourself, value yourself, and attract healthy, fulfilling relationships.
Relationship problems hang over us like a black cloud.
Your relationships are your most important assets. I can help you improve your relationship with yourself and with others. Humans are social creatures. Relationship stress, loss, and social isolation take a toll on us that can shake our most fundamental sense of wellbeing. This can manifest in painful symptoms such as worry, stress, insomnia, anxiety, health problems, depression, and serious mental illness, to name a few. You want to feel connected, secure, and loved. You want to sleep well, unburdened. I can help.
I help people become more compassionate toward themselves.
Self-awareness, self-acceptance, and personal responsibility are key to healthy relationships and contentment. We have the power to cultivate our own self esteem. Even those of us who were lucky enough to have reasonably healthy and happy childhoods can find ourselves suffering.
No one is immune from the inevitable challenges of being Human. Thankfully, psychotherapy works.
