Are you a high-performing, overachieving perfectionist who desires to learn how to enjoy a more balanced & peaceful life, deeper intimacy in relationships, greater confidence, and the ability to enjoy the sucess you have been working non-stop to get? Does trying to balance your career with being a good parent, partner, friend, or caregiver feel overwhelming sometimes? Maybe you are a new parent experiencing baby blues & anxiety about being responsible for the life of a tiny human being? Are you hating your body for not allowing you to create new life naturally nor easily despite fertility treatment? Perhaps, you feel let down, disappointed, consumed with grief & betrayed by your body after experiencing the loss of your pregnancy? Maybe you are the parent of a highly sensitive child or teenager who is anxious or depressed and looking for solutions to help you support them. Are you questioning your worth & value as a single person who has never been married, had what you consider to be a failed married or relationships? Are you grieving the loss of a parent, spouse, child or other loved ones–or perhaps an unexpected change or loss in your life? Every season of life is different and none of them are exempt from change.
“Healing requires your active participation. It demands that you show up everyday to do the work. It means refusing to betray yourself for temporary comfort. Healing always begins with choosing what is healthiest for you.”-LaTonya P. Washington, LICSW, Founder of Changing Seasons Therapy & Consulting, PLLC
The stories that we tell ourselves aren’t always kind and sometimes they keep us stuck in an unhealthy place. Ironically it is when we are going through some of the most difficult times in our lives that we can be the meanest to ourselves. Sometimes the narrator of the stories in our head sounds like the voice of a critical parent, grandparent, or ex-lover. If you heard someone talking to your child or best friend the way you talk to yourself you’d demand that the emotional and mental abuse stop. Replaying negative thoughts in your mind can keep you distracted from performing important tasks, being present with your family and make it impossible for you to sleep. You don’t deserve to feel that way. You can change the narrative, rewrite your story & enjoy a more fulfilling, peaceful life.
