About

Are you tired of needing everyone to like you? Are you sick of doubting all of your your decisions? Are you fed up with intrusive people who take advantage of your kindness? People pleasing has its roots in childhood when certain conditions and circumstances in your family of origin made it necessary for you to find a coping strategy. It is not your fault— it was a means of survival. While people pleasing was necessary and useful when you were young, it has proven to be detrimental in adulthood when not addressed; You do not know yourself, are easily controlled, have low self-esteem, and feel hopeless to overcome this pattern.
I understand, because I too used this coping strategy for many years until good psychotherapy, which included learning direct communication skills, helped me believe in my own value, and break out of the pattern of people pleasing. If I can do it, so can you. From our work you will reduce your anxiety, get to know yourself and learn to be on your own side.
Our meetings will become a regular safe space to let go of your burdens and speak your truth. You will gain a newfound sense of self and a new appreciation for your own uniqueness. From our meetings, you will acquire the confidence necessary to assert yourself, and be respected. You will learn to say no, set boundaries, and trust yourself. Please reach out.
