Are you the one holding everything together and it feels like no one appreciates your efforts? Do you everything for everybody? You find it very hard to say no to people, and you feel taken advantage of. Putting yourself first feels selfish and wrong! The resentment builds and you find yourself lashing out. You may even stuff your feelings and find yourself drinking more and more; just to cope. You’re afraid if you stop doing everything, they will not want you anymore. You feel if you stop taking care of everyone, you won’t have value in your relationships. You’re afraid of being abandoned and alone.
You want to stop and let everyone fend for themselves, but you don’t know how. You want to stop worrying and over-analyzing. You want to put yourself first, without the guilt. I specialize in helping people learn how to put themselves first. I can help you release the guilt. I can help you let go of unhealthy coping behaviors (overeating/binge drinking).
My practice is exclusively online. Online therapy reduces the obstacles that busy people face. It allows you to avoid travel time and traffic. It allows you to participate from the privacy of your own home.
