Do you often feel overwhelmed?
Are you driven by a need to be “perfect” and “get it right?”
Do you feel torn between your roles as a mom, friend, employee or significant other?
Does this sound familiar?
You are stressed and feel unable to talk to anyone about your concerns for fear of being judged and criticized. Sometimes, you struggle with self esteem and self worth, but you’re afraid to tell anyone because you worry your façade will be shattered. You quietly suffer from anxiety even though you look strong on the outside and nobody would ever suspect the worry going through your head or moments of near panic. Maybe you mask your insecurity or distress by shopping, overwhelming yourself with tasks and focusing all of your attention on helping others. In fact, most people would describe you as being very put together and helpful. Maybe you feel like you don’t even have true relationships because you’re so afraid to be vulnerable or open up to others.
Do You Know Yourself?
If I asked you today who you are, can you answer the question? Perhaps you aren’t sure how to answer the question and feel embarrassed. It’s almost like you’ve been living a lie. You’ve worn so many masks (mother, wife, daughter, friend, hard working leader at work) that you don’t know who the “real” you is anymore. While you love your children and spouse, you are more than just a mom or wife. Even your work role (housewife, employee, or entrepreneur for instance) doesn’t have to define you anymore. As a women’s therapist, I understand this struggle to find yourself and define your own life.
You’ve felt frustrated, confused and lost long enough. You are ready to make a change to feel empowered, confident and have a clear definition of who you are. Counseling can be an important first step on the journey of self discovery.
We Specialize in Therapy for Women
While we aren’t exclusively a women’s counseling center, we do specialize in empowering women. Our female therapists focus on helping you learn to live as your most authentic self. We provide expert counseling services for women who feel defeated, exhausted, overwhelmed, stressed, anxious, depressed, and consumed by perfection. Women walk through our doors ready for change, however, they don’t know where to start. Sometimes, they have low self-esteem. Or you may know your worth but just aren’t sure how to stand up for yourself at work or in relationships. We are honored to help women through these difficult times and take pride in providing high-quality counseling services. We’re passionate about helping women define who they are outside the roles they play.
How will Counseling Help?
We provide clients with coping skills to challenge negative self-talk. Through our work together, you will establish a true sense of connection and learn how to stop being a prisoner of perfection. You will be able to see yourself and your life more clearly. Collaboratively, we develop a roadmap to meet the goals you want in life. This is done by providing a safe, nonjudgmental environment.
Our skilled therapists will help you identify your “WHY” and your “TRIGGERS.” What makes you want to quit? What feelings are you least comfortable with? If you can identify this then it will be much easier for you to conquer them. Lean into your insecurities and face them! The more you sit in the discomfort, the more you challenge and face your fears. I’m not going to lie, this part sucks!!! No one wants to sit in their insecurities and be vulnerable to pain. However, think of the alternative. Who wants to stay stuck?
