You know going to see a counselor is going to take vulnerability on your part and the part of you that feel imperfect will be exposed. Going on the journey of self-discovery will help you feel more open, help you with setting appropriate boundaries, and fill the void of feeling truly known. It’s easy to be a caretaker and it’s hard to be taken care. Coming to therapy can recreate those false beliefs that you’re not important enough to be known and taken care of.
I myself have gone through the journey of learning that I am IMPORTANT. Being a caretaker it’s easy to put your needs aside, but if you don’t fill your love tank up you will end up burnt out. You may have heard the common saying when you fly with kids “You have to put your mask on before your child’s”. If you’re burnt out, every area of your life will suffer because of that. I believe everyone deserves to learn to truly love themselves. The journey of self-love and self-empowerment will help you with those feelings of NEEDING other’s approval.
Being a new Mother myself I’ve learned a lot about self-care and just how important it is to have a support system. When people would asked how I was doing after having my baby I would always say “It was a shock to my system”. I no longer was just “me”, but I was me and baby. Everywhere I went I had this tiny human who needed me for their very survival, but I was in survival mode myself. I’ve become so passionate on helping new moms learn how to separate the part of them that is mom and also having an identity of self.
Based off my experience I can help you with learning how to be fully you and loving the person you are. I can help you with setting healthy boundaries for yourself and others and to create healthy levels of self-care. I’m here to meet you at your place of need to experience this journey of change with you. So email me to schedule your initial appointment and start feeling more you today.
