Does any of the following sound familiar to you?
I’m tired and exhausted. I don’t like feeling irritable all the time. I’m always people-pleasing/I’m a people-pleaser. I feel like I can’t take on anymore. I hold myself back. I feel like I’m losing myself. I’m not doing what I used to do. I feel like I’m pretending. I spend too long not being me for other people. I’m constantly questioning myself, or second-guessing myself. I feel guilty for saying ‘no’. I feel like taking care of myself or doing what I want is selfish. I feel like I’m going crazy, am I the crazy one? I’m questioning myself, is it me, or is it them? I apologize to end the argument quicker. I just can’t take this anymore. He/she always makes it about him/her. He/she always gets his/her way. I pretend things are okay. I feel like I don’t know who I am anymore. Why do I seem to keep attracting the same people? I’m anxious. I feel like I’m fake and lying to everyone. I feel bored with life. Is this it, is this all there is?
I would be honoured to walk alongside you to help illuminate your path to inner growth and transformation for greater happiness, peace, and freedom in relationships. As a registered psychologist, I offer individual and couple’s therapy in a safe and non-judgmental environment that is LGBTQ and poly friendly. With a background in Holistic Studies, I understand the importance of trauma-informed therapeutic approaches that integrate body, mind, and spirit, as well as the value of incorporating cultural and spiritual practices and ideology relevant to clients.
We all perceive relationships and the world around us through a "lens" of our individual history that is often built on fear, shame, and scarcity - a framework that we have allowed others to teach us, which often precludes us from the truth of who we are and what our lives and relationships can be. I invite you to take a look at your "lens" and to let go of that which does not serve your best interest, to be illumined to the truth of your worthiness, the worthiness of others, and the abundance and possibilities that are available to you. Tap in to your own Love-inspired inner wisdom, and remove the "ache" of not being in alignment with your True Self. The world awaits all the gifts that you have to offer.
