My clients struggle like you do. Despite being intelligent and introspective, they overthink everything. They’re dedicated, motivated, hard workers; but they never feel good enough, no matter how much they’ve accomplished. They’re natural helpers, but nobody knows that deep down they never truly felt like they belonged. Life is hard.
When they first come in, their relationships are suffering. They don’t understand their feelings or how to communicate them, so they let problems build until they break down or blow up.
They avoid conflict like the plague, and they try to please everyone. They are constantly looking for approval and criticize themselves ruthlessly.
They often feel let down by others since they put everyone else first and don’t see themselves as very important which leaves them feeling burnt out, stressed, or depressed.
Their emotions get in the way of the life they want in so many ways. They aren’t the kind of partner they want to be. They feel like they’re failing at life. And their confidence in themselves is tanking.
Before they came to see me, they thought they could solve the problem themselves. They felt like a failure for not being able to fix it on their own. And they were pretty certain that if they went to therapy, it would mean something was wrong with them.
Like my clients, you deserve to feel balanced and at peace, regardless of external circumstances, your relationship status, or what anyone thinks about you. True happiness is not out of your reach. If you want to understand yourself and why you feel the way you do, learn how to control your emotions, communicate more effectively, develop healthier habits, and improve your relationships, I’d love to help you get there.
