Announcement icon Hello! I am offering virtual services through Zoom, it is HIPPA compliant. Please call me with any questions, or to schedule an appointment
You are a successful career woman who is fighting anxiety every stinking day. You say “yes” without considering your schedule or your needs. You worry all of the time about what others think about you and you tend to act differently depending on who you are around. You are scared of being rejected or abandoned, and you spend way too much time in your head replaying conversations you’ve had, fearful that you said something wrong. You doubt yourself frequently and hate to make decisions! Your body has a lot of tension and you’ve been to your doctor or an ER because you thought you were having a heart attack. Time to invest in you.
I’m Karla Smith, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. For the past two decades I have helped successful career women who are overwhelmed with trying to be perfect for everybody. Together we will define the problem in concise terms, use tools to improve the situation. I don't just nod my head and listen, I will be interactive with you. Weekly action plans help!
I like to start with today and find your distress points and how they are interrupting your present life. Examining beliefs, values, recognizing depressive thinking patterns and committing to doing the work, you will improve your self-esteem and re-connect to life.
