Has the drive to “have it all” left you feeling anxious and stressed?
It’s time to start feeling better.
You’ve worked hard all your life to be successful and yet feel stressed, down, and discouraged. Wonder where things have gone wrong? You’ve come to the right place.
Perhaps you’ve been going on autopilot for so long, that you didn’t even realize how much your happiness was suffering. You seem to worry much of the time. You worry about work, relationships or what is happening at home. You worry about the future. You’re not at peace and it feels like your fears are controlling you.
You’re hard on yourself. Many people admire you for what you have accomplished, but as you listen to them speak, you often think to yourself, “If you only knew the truth about me.”
If you’re wrestling with any of the scenarios below, there is hope!
- Anxiety or irritability: You feel stressed, anxious and irritable much of the time.
- Self-doubt: You doubt yourself, your relationships, or your work. You’re confused about what is best or what you want at times.
- Inability to relax or sleep: You can’t seem to slow down, your mind is rarely at rest, you’re either fretting about what has gone/will go wrong or thinking about what you need to do next.
- Symptoms of panic: You sometimes have difficulty breathing, have heart palpitations, or break out in nervous sweats.
- You feel you should be doing more, even though you feel like you are doing too much already: You don’t feel good enough. You strive for perfection, yet never seem to achieve it. Your constant negative self-talk is all consuming at times.
- You’re relationships are not fulfilling. You’re not getting what you need. You might feel unable to have a satisfying intimate relationship, or the one you have just isn’t going well.
- You feel stuck in a rut. You know you need change, but you can’t seem to make it happen.

It’s hard to ask for help.
I know it’s hard to ask for help from a counselor when you are accustomed to doing things on your own. But think of it this way: You’d seek a medical professional if you were sick or had an injury.
From this perspective, doesn’t it make sense to see a therapist when you are struggling to find happiness?
