Mood & Anxiety Issues

Mood &
Anxiety Issues

Depression and anxiety lie to us; they bind and gag our intuition so we cannot trust ourselves. Having a supportive, trusting therapy relationship can make all the difference. I will help you defeat these enemies and center with your true-self.

Relational Trauma

Developing in an environment in which our core emotional needs are not appropriately or consistently met has a lasting impact, potentially contributing to painful self-doubt and difficult adult relationships. 

In therapy, we work together to lessen the negative impact of those needs going unmet by...

  • establishing, over time, a trusting relationship in which I can serve to meet some of those unmet needs by providing the validation, acceptance, boundaries, and relaxation necessary for healing.

  • uncovering the root cause of damaging relationship patterns.

  • grieving for and making peace with your past.

  • building awareness of the current mechanisms that perpetuate childhood unmet needs well into adulthood.

  • revising limited beliefs and unhelpful behavior patterns with truth-based, balanced alternatives.

  • developing a healthy relationship with your vulnerable inner child.

  • countering dysfunctional levels of criticism and unrelenting standards (towards yourself and others).

  • creating limits and self-disciplines that help you meet personal responsibilities and self-care needs.

Relational Trauma

Perfect and Please

Pleasing, Producing, Performing, Perfecting...

Houston Texas Therapy Counseling

Sounds exhausting, right? People-pleasing and approval-seeking can lead to resentment, disappointment, and passive-aggressiveness. The unrelenting standards and harsh demands of perfectionism are depleting and demoralizing over time. Burnout and avoidant procrastination are not uncommon consequences. An overly harsh inner critic may be self-inflicted and projected onto others. 

Therapy can help you...

  • build self-awareness by exploring underlying causes, past experiences, and current triggers for perfectionism or people-pleasing issues.

  • confront and reframe irrational beliefs and negative thought patterns that contribute to problematic tendencies. 

  • set healthy boundaries and communicate assertively, empowering you to say no when necessary, prioritize self-care, and express your needs and desires confidently without guilt. 

  • establish effective coping strategies, stress management tools, and mindfulness techniques. 

  • develop self-compassion and flexibility in order to embrace imperfections, allow room for human error, and reduce the need for external validation. 

  • explore and honor your individual interests, values, preferences, and desires as you reduce an other-oriented focus and self-neglect.

  • set realistic goals and foster a more balanced approach to life.

  • build resilience and long term change.
