In order to be the "the perfect" employee, parent, or college student, you feel pressure to push yourself to the brink of exhaustion & throw your life out of balance. Externally, you might look like you have it together, but your inner critic is the loudest voice you hear. You’re overwhelmed by thoughts of worries and “what if’s”, constantly comparing yourself to others & being self-critical. Making decisions feels paralyzing because you’re constantly afraid of making the wrong choice. Anxiety & perfectionism can be crippling and prevent you from thriving in your personal life, excelling in your career, and fostering strong bonds.
Many people come to therapists seeking someone to "fix" their problems, "relieve" their stressors or "heal" their personal pain and traumas. This is not what we do; it is something, however, that you will learn to do. Our purpose is to work with you to awaken the strength already residing inside of you, and to make you conscious of it, so that you may be your own cure. We are way-finders. We will walk with you on your journey within to discover your way to self-actualization and becoming your highest self.
