Interrupt Your Inner Critic
Do you feel overwhelmed just thinking about keeping up with your responsibilities at work or in day-to-day life? Are constant worries and fears getting in the way of building deeper relationships or performing well in your career? Do feel restless, stressed out, and unable to concentrate?
Is daily stress leaving you too exhausted to show up as your best self in your professional and personal life? Do you feel unfocused, barely there, and like you’re missing out on living your own life?
As a young woman living in the modern world, the constant societal pressure to be, act, and look a certain way can be overwhelming in itself. Adding negative self talk, the ever present anxious pit in your stomach, and low self esteem can make it feel as though there’s an enormous pressure sitting on your shoulders at all times. Symptoms of anxiety often include: panic attacks, difficulty concentrating, rapid breathing, hyperventilation, fatigue, and insomnia.
When anxiety disrupts your ability to live a calm and healthy life, then it’s time to reach out and get the support and guidance you need to learn how to interrupt your inner critic and change the narrative in your mind.
Step Into a Life You Love
Arriving at this page signals you’re on the right path to change your life. Most people struggle with anxiety for years before getting help. By the time you’ve found yourself here, you may feel overwhelmed with self-criticism, sadness, anxiety, loneliness, or fear. All of which can leave you feeling like giving up.
Anxiety can feel overpowering. It can leave your self esteem in the dust and keep you from reaching life goals or from forging deeper connections with friends and family. When we work through your inner thought patterns and learn how to use techniques, such as cognitive coping affirmations, to overcome limiting beliefs and mindsets, you can turn negative self talk into self-love and kindness.
Through the therapy process, we will work through the causes of your anxiety and learn healthy ways to cope with stress, anxiety, and the messy parts of life. You will get the tools you need to reclaim your life and peace of mind. Our goal through therapy is to shift your focus on living a life of full expression and enjoying the things that are truly most important to you.
