I help men and women engage in their lives without fear.
Clients I work with found themselves struggling, too. Despite kicking ass professionally, being everybody’s best friend, and appearing to be good at everything, they feel like they’re going through the motions. When they first come in, they’re wondering if they should stay in a relationship that has evolved into just two people sharing a space. Or they’re two clicks away from saying yes to the old flame who asks them out for drinks by way of social media. Or they’ve already been seeing someone else and aren’t sure what to do.
They are terrified of being alone, but equally afraid of conflict. They accommodate others’ needs because the prospect of saying how they really feel might lead to pushback from their partner. They find that dodging their feelings has caused them to feel stuck in their relationships, professional lives, and creative pursuits.
They have done everything the internet has told them to do: gratitude journaling, affirmations, self-care, coping skills. At some point, they feel the disconnect between what they feel inside and the uplifting message scrolled on a post-it and stuck to the mirror.
Their avoidance has impacted them in many ways. Not only do they feel they are spinning their wheels in their relationships, but they sometimes feel stunted in their careers and paralyzed in their creativity. They know they have value, but they can’t seem to get around the barriers holding them back.
Before they came to see me, my clients wondered whether they were simply destined to endure low-level life dissatisfaction. They were not sure a life of emotional connection (emotional fearlessness?) could be attainable. And even though they succeed in so many areas of their life, they were unsure of their ability to assert themselves with others. Telling someone what’s in their heart caused them anxiety.
Like my clients, you deserve to live an emotionally rich life. Understanding yourself and discovering new ways of communicating with others that feel authentic and truly “you” are possible. Attending to the relationship with your self radiates into deepened connections with others, unbridled creative expression, and a better balance between your family and career. If you want to discover new ways of relating to your life, I’d love to help you.
