You’ve always managed to maintain control but life just became overwhelming and your usual coping techniques aren’t working. Not knowing what else to do, you find yourself doing more of the same. When working long hours does nothing to soothe your fear that you are an imposter, you work more. When one glass of wine fails to take the edge off your work stress, your pour yourself another. Now, others are starting to notice you don't have your act perfectly together and your frustration with yourself has built itself into a litany of self-criticism.

I believe one of the bravest things you can do is take that first step in beginning to understand your own story. You may be feeling like no matter what you do, you cannot live up to the expectations of what others want you to be. Maybe you feel especially anxious and overwhelmed about what is happening in your life, making it seem like things are spiraling out of control. You may even feel like you want to take control of your life but have no clue where to start or are overpowered by fear.

Are anxiety, anger, alienation, sadness or confusion causing you to feel overwhelmed trapped or hopelessly thwarted in reaching your goals? Or do you feel a deep longing for change? The call to deepen your understanding of yourself, of others and your situation is often signaled by negative thoughts, painful feelings, or a work or relationship crisis. The opportunity to talk with someone who is accepting and takes a practical approach restores hope, rekindles desire, resolves conflict, and directs the flow of energy towards positive movement.
