It can be so hard to say no. You never want to disappoint the people around you. But never saying no is costing you. Your friends, your family, your job, your dog all come before you. And you find yourself committing to things you really don’t want to do. You never find time for yourself, and when you do, you feel selfish and guilty. But when it comes to your expectations of others, you’re always letting things go, even if they actually really bother you. You find yourself beating yourself up over the most minor mistakes, replaying moments in your mind over and over again. And when it’s time to make a decision, you feel paralyzed.

You still want to take care of those around you, but you also want to be able to take time for yourself without the guild. You want to stop overthinking every word, every decision, every action. You want to finally feel comfortable and confident in your own skin and you want to ditch the constant worry and self-doubt.

It’s entirely possible to say no and take care of yourself without guilt and I can help get you there. My practice is fully online through secure video sessions, making therapy convenient & accessible to people anywhere in TX. I also offer convenient online scheduling. I invite you to my website (www.tailwindscounseling.com) to get learn more & get scheduled
