Often when we have experienced trauma or emotional pain we learn to hide parts of ourselves as a form of protection. This coping mechanism, while effective, can cause us to seek out patterns in our lives that leave us feeling anxious, dissatisfied or just simply "stuck.” Thus we may start to engage in unhealthy coping mechanisms, such as perfectionism, emotional eating or seeking out “toxic” relationship patterns as a result of the hurt we feel. The good news is that you do not have to suffer this way forever! In our work together we will focus on exploring how your past experiences and limiting beliefs, have impacted your view of your self-worth and thus keep you from engaging more fully in your present. That way we can collaboratively work together for your sense of purpose and identify alternative coping mechanisms which will allow you to become the most authentic version of you!
