"You're struggling with substance use, addiction, shame, and low self-esteem. Control, perfectionism and rigidity have become ways to manage life. If you're not achieving then you feel worthless. Nothing is good enough! You're harder on yourself than with strangers. You've felt depressed and anxious for as long as you can remember. It's felt difficult to connect with others. Relationships feel challenging. Anger is quick to come out but it's masking other feelings. It feels unbelievably difficult to connect with others, to make friends, and to relate. When people get too close your instinct is to push them away. "

"Asking for help in a society that prides its self on self-sufficiency and 60-hour workweeks can be a little unnerving to say the least. Admitting to yourself that you need help and cannot handle everything alone is something we are taught to view as weakness or failure; which makes looking for a therapist upsetting to some. However, if you had high blood pressure, you would seek out a doctors help without embarrassment; seeking help from a counselor is the same. So, if you feel stuck in a rut; have lost that drive in your life or you just need help getting over a bump in the road - You are not alone. I am here to help! "
