About

It's the most socially appropriate time in modern history to be a bit of a mess, but that doesn't make it easier for most of us. Being intelligent can actually make it harder to adapt to new things outside your frames of reference. Being empathetic can cause you to feel like you're constantly letting others & yourself down. Being unique or outside norms can leave you feeling lonely & questioning yourself. If you tend to hold & hide everything inside, or if you're someone who can't help but dump everything out all over the place, you may be experiencing miscommunication & judgment from others on top of everything.
It's easy to want to hide, ignore, or pick a fight with reality. There's nothing more normal than falling into old habits amid stress & change. But these moments also create unusual windows of opportunity to go in entirely new directions: to reinvent the wheel, to finally learn to love the wheel you already have, or to trade in your wheels for wings.
I help easily misunderstood people get out of their own way, wield their unique strengths, & thrive. My practice is 100% online, forever. Please visit my website, xc-counseling.com, for more information & scheduling.
