No matter how hard you try, you can’t seem to shush the inner voice in your head that’s telling you “Do better”, “Work harder”, “Don’t mess up again”, “You are not trying hard enough” or “You are not good enough”. Some days, this voice can be so overwhelming that you become paralyzed with anxiety and stress. Even so, this is the same voice that has helped you become as successful as you are today. Without this voice, there would be no advance degree, recent promotion, size 2 jeans or luxury car parked in the driveway.
You were taught early on that with hard work and perfection comes acceptance and love. As a result, your self worth is tied to your achievements and with every accolade the goalpost is pushed back further and further. This creates a life that is incredibly exhausting and unfulfilling.
If this sounds like you, chances are you are a perfectionist. There is also a good chance that you’ve spent the majority of your life toting your perfectionism like a badge of honor. But recently, you have mentally and emotionally hit a wall. You are confused on how you got here and what to do about it.
Through therapy, perfectionists are able to develop clarity, redefine priorities, and most importantly, experience freedom from the shackles of constantly having to perform.
During our time together, we will learn more about the root of your perfectionistic tendencies. You will discover that your self-worth is more than an accumulation of your achievements. You are worthy of love and acceptance just as you are, in all of your perfect imperfections.
