You're a smart, sensitive soul who knows how to get shit DONE. People can count on you because you're the responsible, reliable "giver" who makes sure others' wants and needs are met. On the outside, it seems like you've got it all together. But your mind is often a maelstrom of worry and turmoil, anticipating worst-case scenarios and disaster. Your inner critic whispers (or shouts!) in your ear: "Maybe you're just not good enough...you're failing...you're a fraud." Your outer success is a double-edged sword, rewarding you with the external validation that makes you feel worthy but keeps you on the approval-seeking hamster wheel.
I get you because I've BEEN you, and know how work with your unique challenges. I have a warm, non-judgmental and individualized approach that can help you find an inner calm and grounded self-confidence that will stick over the long term. My clients have experienced profound healing and relief from anxiety and insecurity...and this is possible for you, too.
Curious? Set up a complimentary, no-pressure consultation to see if I might be a fit. I'm truly passionate about helping people just like you and am highly invested in my own personal growth and professional development - all of which enables me to to be a better therapist and keep the focus on YOUR wants, needs and goals. I look forward to connecting!
