Do you feel caught in self-criticism? Do you feel separate from others- or less than? Self-criticism can affect mood, sleep, relationships, and motivation. You might feel you've lost your sense of purpose- that a good life is out of reach. You are not alone. In this post-pandemic world, so many of us feel anxious and hard on ourselves.
I can help you untangle from self-criticism and find your creative flow. My approach involves skills for: 1. Disentangling from stuck patterns, 2. Building perspective, and 3. Connecting to what's most important. We’ll engage with arts-based methods to build flexibility and confidence.
It takes courage to reach out for support. When we're really struggling, our loved ones don't always support us in the ways we need. Clients appreciate my warmth, humor, open mindedness, and expertise in working with a variety of problems related to self-criticism. Therapy doesn’t have to be a bummer. Let's find your flow!
