Licensed Mental Health Counselor -
My clients are exhausted and overwhelmed like you. My clients are juggling a number of balls, especially those that are juggling chronic illnesses/pain/syndromes. They are tired of doing their best to keep all these balls (work, school, parenting, relationships, self-care, health and wellbeing, sleep + more) up in the air (even though admittedly they are pretty darn good at it). But when they inevitably drop a few because something else pops up or they get tired, life feels messy and they are quick to place judgements on themselves.
My clients are expert problem solvers and fixers. Some are the type of person who the people in their life lean on for support or to always have an answer. Some have tried a number of ways to fix or problem solve their way our of their emotions, medical challenges, or exhaustion. They find these behaviors to work for a little bit but aren’t moving them towards the life they imagined for themselves. Some realize they aren’t sure they can keep up with all of what needs to be done to feel “okay”.
When some of my clients do take time for themselves or the rest they need, their mind struggles with feeling guilty, worrying about what they “should” be doing for work/school/person (fill in the blank with any responsibility).
Like my clients, you deserve to find ease and connection in your body without a to-do list flowing through your head or scanning your body for what’s wrong now. Not being defined or consumed by your productivity or your current health challenges and symptoms is not out of your reach. I’d love to help you get there. Contact me today for a free consultation.
