My clients are trying to balance a lot of things. While doing so, they are questioning "how did I get here?" Things like jobs, family, academic stress, pressure to perform, and feeling the need to appear "good" only add to the feeling of heaviness on their shoulders. When people are in this state, their past experiences of stress, trauma, and anxiety often surface. This perpetuates a cycle of emotions and behavior they are not yet aware of. My clients are willing to step out of their comfort zones in order to improve their quality of life. My clients want to strengthen their independence, identity, and sense of purpose.
