Licensed Professional Counselor in , TX
What you see is the tip of the iceberg; no matter how hard you try to change yourself or control the situation, you just can't figure out why you keep going back to the same patterns. Thinking back, it's taken a lot from you, more than you've gained. I understand why it's so hard to break this cycle. With a concentration in addiction studies and having worked with people in recovery, I help you understand the biopsychosocial components that all go hand in hand with substance use and abuse.
Most of your life, others have made you feel a certain way, forcing you to hide behind a false truth of not feeling "good enough" for something or someone, or seeking outside validation. I recognize the effectiveness of empowerment, the importance of building up your confidence at your own pace, and the power of true, unconditional acceptance to who you are. My judgement-free space allows you to freely express yourself, without the looming fear of feeling shamed or disappointed. To be you.
Life has thrown you a lemon. Whether this transition was highly anticipated or totally unexpected, what you feel is very natural. "Had I just.." and "What if.." scenarios pop in your head. Fear or doubt became too consistent or grieving the lifestyle you cherished has been real. Prepared or not, that new chapter is here. I help you find your new normal, reframe your perspective to see the beauty through change or adversity, to see the green grass on the other side. Time to make lemonade!
