You may have felt pressure to succeed your whole life. It may have been pressure from your family: a highly successful parent, a family legacy to live up to, or just a family culture where second-best was never enough. As a result, you may find yourself stuck in a cycle of always achieving but never feeling good enough, not liking yourself, and feeling a lack of joy, freedom, and ease in your life.
I help people who struggle with perfectionism learn to break free from old patterns and finally find true self-acceptance, freedom, and joy.
You’re caring, conscientious, and considerate. People consider you a “nice person”. You strive to make other people happy and to make a good impression. You feel a sense of duty or obligation to others and often avoid conflict. Because you spend so much time taking care of others, you aren’t getting what you want in your life and feel resentment, a sense of loss, or even feel anxious or depressed. I help people like you – nice guys/girls and people-pleasers – gain confidence, become more assertive, and get what they want from life. We will work together to help you understand the patterns in your life and how to break out of them so you can start living life on your terms instead of everyone else’s.
Does the thought of meeting new people or attending social events make you anxious? Does what other people might think about you cause you to avoid socializing with coworkers or at school? Do you feel isolated in your life? You’re not alone. Many people suffer with social anxiety for years. But there is hope. I can help you get to the root of your social anxiety and learn to navigate and control your thoughts and emotions so you can start living the life you want.
