I remember when I started looking for a counselor. I knew things were not right but I wondered were they so bad that I needed to go to a stranger for help. After tossing around the idea in my head I worked up the courage to start calling people. Most counselors never returned my call which was frustrating and disheartening. Still, I held out a tiny shred of hope and found myself sitting on someones couch looking at my life.

From the outside, you may look like you have your stuff together. But behind the mask you wear for others, you feel lost and filled with self-doubt. You don’t know what's next for your life. You're starting to worry all the time and feel overwhelmed. You don’t understand why you keep making the same bad decisions, ending up in the same crappy situations. You question if you are enough and what you're doing wrong. Feeling crappy, self-doubt & imposter syndrome, chronic people-pleasing, worried all the time, dealing with a breakup? I help women to make sense of the overwhelming & figure out the direction of their life.

You are a high achieving individual in many ways, but seem to come up short when it comes to having meaningful, successful relationships with others and struggle with self confidence. You have been defined by others in your life as “successful” but are still left feeling unfilled and unhappy. Maybe negative thoughts swirl around your head when you are trying to get work done or fall asleep at night. Or maybe you experience difficulty concentrating because you are so worried if the person next to you is upset with you and constantly worry if you can make the people around you happy.

This has happened to me many times and it is so frustrating. When someone is struggling with the stress of life finding someone to listen is difficult enough. Then add to that anxiety, depression, ADHD,obsessive thoughts,severe trauma or loss and the feeling of hopelessness and defeat can be almost overwhelming .This brings up the question"Does anyone really care?".
