Do you find you are having trouble managing anxiety, have trouble maintaining and establishing boundaries with folks, juggling daily stressors, all while still carrying some of that childhood trauma you have yet to address? I see and I hear you! It can be hard managing life with current day stressors on top of past situations and stressors that continue to effect you in the present. You want to get back to feeling like you, you want to be a better you in the present and for your future self.
My goal is to continue to provide insight and awareness that you already have. My approach for therapy includes unpacking and getting to the root cause of her present day concerns. That includes empowering you, holding you accountable, challenging behaviors and keeping you focused. Sometimes we find that we may overcompensate, lack emotional awareness, may exhibit people pleasing behaviors, in turn leading us to compromising our mental and physical health at times. Through open dialogue, we will work together to find the best resolutions and behaviors that are more healthy.
My priority is our therapeutic relationship first so that you can feel comfortable and trust the process. I often utilize CBT to help assist with negative thoughts, feelings and behaviors while also being solution focused. Check out my website and schedule with me today! I look forward to working with you.
