"If you find yourself struggling with feeling overwhelmed by so many life demands that you are unable to tend to your own needs, I can help you to recognize what is contributing to getting stuck and learn ways to get your life back. You may be immobilized by old, self-defeating habits, being driven by "shoulds", fears of being judged by others, or a general sense that taking time to take care of yourself will result in negative consequences. This likely impacts the quality of your relationships, health, and your sense of empowerment."
