You've been trying to find your way back to your old self again, but are struggling and stuck. Something has to change. For some reason, it seems impossible to do things well enough at work or at school or at home with your family, maybe even with a new baby. You're feeling disconnected and worried about letting people down. It's gotten really hard to keep up. Being stretched so thin and constantly fighting to tread water is taking its toll on your patience, too. Every little thing is irritating. It feels so hopeless to not be able to just pull it together and be more like everyone else around you, especially if you're a new mom.

Remember what it was like to feel capable and confident, in control of your life? Imagine liking yourself again and being kind and forgiving to yourself, even when you're not checking off all the items on that endless to-do list. Picture feeling at ease and connected to others, feeling that you fit and belong. I can help you find your way back to that place.

I work with teen girls, women, & new moms experiencing anxiety, depression, isolation, anger, low confidence, or confusion about who they are/want to be. I help my clients understand themselves better, be more authentic, and make more constructive choices. If you'd like to work with me, visit my website or call/email to schedule your free phone consultation.

Has estado tratando de encontrar la manera de ser la persona que eras antes, pero aún sigues batallando. Sabes que algo tiene que cambiar. Por alguna razón, parece que no puedes hacer las cosas lo suficientemente bien, sea en el trabajo, en la escuela o en casa con tu familia, quizas hasta con un nuevo bebé. Te sientes sola y preocupada que estas decepcionando a la gente, que no estas cumpliendo con deberes ... es difícil mantenerte al día. Estás tan cansada y luchando por mantenerte a flote. Te preguntas por qué no puedes simplemente sentirte mejor y ser más como todos los demás a tu alrededor, especialmente si eres una nueva mamá.

¿Recuerdas lo que era sentirse capaz y segura? Imagínate volver a gustarte y ser amable contigo misma, ya sea que estés cumpliendo con todas tus responsabilidades en esa lista interminable o no. Imagínate sintiéndote cómoda y conectada con los demás, sintiendo que perteneces. Puedo ayudarte a encontrar el camino de regreso a ser esa persona.

Trabajo con chicas adolescentes, mujeres adultas, y nuevas mamas que sienten ansiedad, depresión, baja autoestima o confusión sobre quiénes son o quieren ser. Ayudo a mis clientas a conocerse mejor a si mismas, a ser más auténticas ya tomar decisiones más constructivas. Si desea trabajar conmigo, visite mi sitio web o llámeme para citar una consulta.
