When will you realize you are worthy of being a priority? You always put others first and you wear that as a badge of honor. You believe that it is your job to always be available to others, always be willing and barely having your needs met. You are the “responsible” one so everyone in your life always counts on you. You have always been the go-to person for your family and friends. You are used to being the “strong” friend or are perceived as having it all together. If we are being honest that makes you feel good about yourself. Other’s needing you have made you feel wanted and seen. But what happens when that stops,

Therapy can provide a place to reset, rest, grieve, and grow into the life you find worth living.

I was inspired to name my business SPEAK counseling services because I truly believe that untreated mental health and substance abuse dependence stems from our inability to understand how it is our mind, emotions, and body is trying to speak to us. Similar to when we stub our pinky toe and we get a shot of pain ; our body will send us symptoms of anxiety, depression, recurrent dreams etc in an effort to communicate pain/discomfort. Since mental/emotional pain is a foreign and misunderstood language we often lean on behaviors that sooth It quickly (e.g addiction) this increases anxiety/depression as the pain is never truly managed.
