Following are some questions to ask yourself to determine if therapy could be helpful for you.
Are you repeatedly attracted to the wrong type of person?
Do you feel that you are usually the one who takes care of others, and that others rarely care for you?
Do you feel that you have to do everything perfectly and that if you “fail” people will think less of you?
Do you have a hard time believing that others really care about you?
Do you believe that you are flawed, fundamentally different or inadequate compared to others?
Do you think that you have to make others happy or they will reject you or be hurt in some way?
Do you believe that you have to protect yourself from people because they may harm you or take advantage of you?
Do you doubt that you are worthy of love?
Do you feel that you have to hide behind a mask to be accepted?
These are some of the common traps where people tend to get stuck.
You are totally unique and your life is of great value. Like the rest of us, you grew up in a world where you were not loved perfectly, so you learned to cope and adapt. Your coping style is like a relationship blueprint that was drafted in childhood; and it is keeping you stuck. The blueprint is the “deep story” that is hidden behind everything that you perceive and that you do-and you don’t even know that it is there. The great news is that you make sense, and once you clearly see why you are stuck, you can do something about it.
I will accept you while also assisting you to see things from a new vantage point. My style is individualized to meet your unique personality and circumstances, collaborative, and non-judgmental. If you would like to schedule an appointment or get more information, please feel free to email or request a phone consultation. I look forward to hearing from you.
