As individuals, we all have a happy, healthy baseline where we find ourselves truly thriving in life. When we are struggling, we oftentimes begin to live our lives in extremes. We might begin to see these extremes manifest in working too much, maybe drinking more than we usually do, or noticing that our emotions seem out of our control and difficult to manage.
When we live in these extremes we can find other aspects of our lives beginning to suffer. If work has become too much of an extreme, our family relationships and social lives might begin to suffer. If we have begun to engage in more extreme substance usage, our employment, relationships, and health might become neglected. If our emotions feel out of control, we might feel as if all aspects of our lives have been impacted. It may seem impossible to identify where to being in fixing our problems
In working with my clients, I strive to help you find a healthy balance in every part of your life, whether it is school, work, relationships or health. Finding a balance is important. Balance does not allow one area in your life to become too extreme, pulling all of your focus. In session, we will work to identify where life has been impacted for you. We will develop personalized strategies that will help you feel more in control, making your concerns feel more manageable.
For clients, it is important to do work with me in each session and then apply those strategies in your daily life in order to begin to see real improvement. As you begin to live your life in healthier ways outside of our sessions, you begin to get away from your extremes. You get closer to finding your balance. Once you find that balance in your daily life, you are able to live at your happy, healthy baseline. You begin to thrive.
