You are overwhelmed, burned out, stressed, irritable and no longer feel like yourself. You want to enjoy your life, but you are on edge, frustrated and exhausted. You may be struggling with the demands of work, home, parenting, your relationship, or just trying to find balance while "fitting it all in." You may have past trauma that you have not worked through because YOU are always the one taking care of others. You break promises and commitments to yourself, have a hard time trusting yourself and place more importance on pleasing and showing up for others. This is impacting your most important relationship - the one with yourself!
I help women improve their relationship with SELF. They feel overwhelmed, frustrated and stressed with life. They are used to being chronically "busy" or "doing it all". They take care of everyone else and have a pattern of abandoning themselves because they are too exhausted and have nothing left to give once everyone and everything is taken care of.
You are READY to focus on your health and wellness, so that you can find peace, joy and self connection. You are capable, strong and ready! Let's work together. Contact me to schedule a free, 15 minute phone consultation to see if we are a good match to work together in 1:1 therapy, my support groups or wellness workshops!
