The needs of others come before your own? Sometimes, as children, we fundamentally altered who we were to adjust to trauma, role-reversals, and cold parenting. This can create an underdeveloped sense of self or we are sensitive the slightest shifts in the moods of others. Relationships are scary. When happiness finally starts to seep in, an overwhelming fear sets in that it will all collapse & disappear.
Joy, true joy, is often the scariest thing of all. Let’s change that. It is an honor to be your therapist. Through the safe, empathetic, & non-judgmental container of therapy, we will work towards authenticity and self-acceptance, processing past hurts & learning to set healthy boundaries while communicating with kindness & confidence.
Your family history doesn’t have to define you. Through inner work, you can begin to trust in yourself & others. Things can change, if you are willing. The past can be haunting. Divorce, infidelity, narcissism, addiction, depression, & anxious parenting can all leave their marks. But change is possible. *Reach out for more Info*
