Highly Sensitive People (HSP) make up a 15-20% of the population. It's not a disorder or a weakness. In fact it is estimated that 50% of all people in therapy possess this trait, so there is a 50/50 chance right off the bat that you might be an HSP! As an HSP you are meant to do great things. Your trait is here for a reason and your superpowers make you very valuable. Therapy provides the roadmap to understanding yourself and designing your life in order to take advantage of your gifts.
Shame seems to be baked into our consciousness, as an almost virtuous thing we are told we should feel and work to make up for. But you are not here to prove you are worthy of being a human, you already are. The journey is not to be ‘enough’, but to realize that you are and always have been. We don’t work to fix our ourselves, we work to discover and cherish our true selves, our most authentic selves and our most authentic lives.
Many of us started dieting at 10 or younger and have been on some sort of diet or “lifestyle plan”ever since. It feels like dieting is the only option if you ever want to accept yourself (or be accepted). But there is a different way, a way that can reconnect you to the wisdom of your body and free you to pursue your dreams. I help people find peace with their bodies using a non-diet, weight neutral approach to food based on permission, allowance, self compassion and trust.
Mid Life Crisis! Feeling stuck, disillusioned and purposeless when you are supposed to feel only gratitude sucks. You have no energy, you're crabby all the time, and nothing really matters. It's not just anxiety or depression, it's your life/soul calling you to grow. Midlife gives you the challenge of realigning to a new purpose. The problem is we can't see the new purpose and meaning while the old is still hanging around. I help support and guide this process.
In therapy we can start with some tools that will help to alleviate some of your suffering as soon as possible. Cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness are excellent, evidence based practices that are effective with anxiety. After some tools are in place we will start to go deeper and see where the anxiety may have originated. We will focus on your feelings, behaviors, and thoughts. and goals as well as exploring values, purpose and passions.
