"Feeling like you're standing outside your story and tired of the hustling to be "good enough"? Counseling can feel like an intimidating prospect, sharing your heart and mind with a stranger in hopes of finding something better, something different. Whether you're struggling to breathe in the chaos of life or feeling stuck and hopeless, having your own personal GPS can make a huge difference between driving in circles or discovering vitality and joy in the journey."

"If you were told you did not matter growing up, through actions or words, this will have an impact on your ability to recognize your worth. Growing up in a home with alcohol abuse, homophobia, emotional abuse, or excessive criticism can lead to feelings of worthlessness, shame, and self hatred. You may seek validation from others and fear their disapproval. This often leads to putting others needs before your own.
