In a world where there is always something to do and always somewhere to be, it can often feel like there isn't enough time to enjoy your life. We get so used to feeling stuck and exhausted by being in constant go mode, trying to prove ourselves, prioritizing pleasing others, and trying to control every aspect of life to keep things from going wrong that we begin to believe this is the way life has to feel.
Would you believe me if I said you can create your measure for success and still strive for excellence, be a high achiever, and accomplish your goals? Well, it's true, and I can teach you how to do it healthily and sustainably.
At Ascension Counseling, we are anxiety experts. While we treat all aspects of anxiety, we specialize in helping Black Women learn to live in freedom, authenticity, alignment, and peace by breaking free from the burdens of perfectionism and shame. We focus on teaching you how to unlearn and heal from the thinking patterns that make you feel you have to prove that you are not only doing enough but also trying to prove that you are enough. By reducing the underlying feeling of shame, we can minimize imposter syndrome, over-performing, stress, anxiety, and controlling behaviors, while promoting overall well-being. By becoming aware of your thoughts, feelings, patterns of behaviors, and the systemic, cultural, and generational experiences that have reinforced the belief that you have to be perfect, you can learn a more effective way to live peacefully while still achieving your goals.
