I specialize in treating women with high functioning anxiety. High functioning anxiety is not a recognized mental health diagnosis but it's has a huge impact nonetheless. This term refers to people who live with anxiety but identify as functioning rather well. This kind of anxiety can even be identified as having positive aspects by the people who experience it.
Women are the safety net of society and we're typically conditioned to put everyone's needs before our own. When we collapse our boundaries to in an effort to gain the approval of others we try to be everything to everyone. This results in us feeling resentful and angry and it's the perfect storm for burnout and exhaustion. I help you identify how and why you're burned out and creatively problem solve how to change course.
Family systems, particularly mother/daughter relationships, are my personal areas of interests and dealing with conflict is a really common issue. I promise you it isn't just you and your family. Conflict in family relationships is normal but there are all kinds of ways to make it less painful and more tolerable. You can even enjoy your family when you healthy boundaries, clear communication and realistic expectations.
