Have you ever been told any of the following phrases? “You don’t need therapy. Therapy is for crazy people.” "Suck it up, you're fine." "Your issues are a family problem. Why do you need to talk to a stranger about our business?" If you've heard that or anything similar, I’m here to support you in unpacking those talk tracks and working through any guilt and/or shame that may have caused. Your feelings and experiences are important and valid. Those views have a tendency to trickle into our own self-perception, self-esteem, regulation tools, reactions, and communication styles, which we can identify and work through together.
