“I’m just not good enough.”
“I can never measure up.”
“I’m such a mess.”
If these thoughts are all too familiar, then you know the pain they cause. These beliefs can underlie symptoms like depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and grief. They can also cause difficulty in standing up for yourself and setting boundaries with others, leaving you feeling like you’re always getting walked on. You may have already tried strategies like positive affirmations but still feel stuck. I specialize in helping women walk through the process of uncovering the roots of these beliefs and feelings, and helping them find practical ways of shifting away from them, which then reduces symptoms.
Together we can break the cycle of self-criticism and people-pleasing so you can experience relief from depression, anxiety, and low self worth, and begin living with peace and joy. I would love to discuss how your beliefs are impacting you and what we can do to improve things.
Choosing which therapist to work with is a very important (and sometimes overwhelming) decision. My hope for this website is to share with you a bit about myself to help you decide whether I might be the right person to help you in attaining deeper self-understanding and acceptance, greater emotional peace, and better relationships.
