“We always look at the mountains ahead of us, but we forget that the mountains behind us were just as hard to climb.”
As a woman, you may feel as though your roles are endless. You may be feeling pulled in a million directions and don’t know which to choose first. Your daily life may bring with it relationship concerns, issues with self-esteem or body image, family worries, work pressures, or just a general sense and feeling that life isn’t going the way you imagined.
We all have a need to talk, be heard, and feel as though there’s someone who understands us and can help. Support is so important when dealing with the curveballs life throws in your way.
Do you find yourself always putting everyone else’s needs ahead of your own? Are you trying to understand why you do the things you do or why others treat you less than kindly? Maybe you’re facing a transition or trying to make difficult decisions. Are you the worrier who creates all sorts of scenarios in your head, preparing for the worst? You may find yourself overthinking things or getting stuck worrying about all of the ‘what ifs’ and picking apart small details that feel huge. If you’re in a relationship, you might be questioning why things don’t feel right and wondering how to be happy again. If you’re single, you might be frustrated and losing hope that your someone is out there because it seems as though you’ve certainly met your share of frogs.
Everyone worries from time to time. It’s when that worrying starts to feel consuming and overwhelming and interferes with you doing or enjoying things, that you may start to wonder if you worry too much. It doesn’t have to stay this way. You don’t have to stay stuck in the sadness, chaos, and dissatisfaction.
Counseling can help you:
- decrease and manage stress
- feel more confident
- express your needs and emotions in healthy ways
- cultivate the strengths you already posses
- gain coping skills and clarity
- provide the judgment free support you deserve
Through therapy, you can develop tools to cope and decrease the control and power your anxious thoughts exert over your daily life. You can begin to find the calm, confidence, and clarity you desire and deserve.
Life can be hard, but it doesn’t have to feel this hard. Let’s get started on getting your life in a place that makes you feel happier, lighter, and satisfied.
