Experience Connection and Authenticity

LIVE into the knowledge that you are worthy

Online Individual Therapy throughout most of the United States

You’re thriving on the outside, but inside is another story.

Becoming a successful professional was natural, and you received high marks for your job performance. But underneath, you doubt yourself and never feel like you’re good enough.

People respect you at work or school, but you struggle to respect yourself and don’t trust your decision-making.

At times, the perfectionism you experience is crippling, and you have trouble extending kindness or compassion to yourself.

It’s been this way for as long as you can remember.

Growing up, you always learned to perform, present, and produce at the highest level.

You were taught that you had to be the best to receive anything like love, connection, or praise.

So, you always worked tirelessly to earn the highest marks, be the most devout, and put in the most effort.

But genuine connection eludes you.

Allowing yourself to be vulnerable and open with others is terrifying for you.

This could stem from abuse, neglect, assault, discrimination, or experiencing a devastating loss.

Whatever the cause, you began hiding parts of yourself you thought others wouldn’t like and shapeshifting to fit some form that people would find more acceptable.

And the tools you’ve used in the past aren’t working.

Compartmentalizing your life and hiding your feelings have been your only recourse to protect yourself, but lately, you can feel your authentic self struggling to break free.

These habits are eroding your relationship with yourself and others and have begun to hurt you rather than help.

You have a brutal internal critic who is holding you back.

You know that if you don’t make a change, these patterns will just continue to lead to more self-destructive behavior, unhealthy habits, and toxic relationships.

There is another way.

What would it mean to know you are worthy of
real love and connection?

Imagine having the confidence to feel whole as your
authentic, imperfect, and natural self.

It’s possible to regain your sense of purpose and live in
alignment with your values. And therapy can help.
