IS ANXIETY KEEPING ME FROM PERFORMING AT MY BEST?
The correlation between our mind and body can be deeper than we realize on a day to day basis. Heart racing, chest pains, sweaty palms, obsessive/racing thoughts and worries, stomach aches, digestive issues, headaches, lack of sleep, depression and feelings of worthlessness, little to no energy, sadness, loneliness, and isolation (just to name a few!). These are all symptoms of anxiety and fear of something in your life. See the correlation between physical and mental symptoms? Are mind is so powerful over our body, which makes improving our mind-body connection a must.
Do any of the above symptoms sound like you? Are a majority of the above symptoms keeping you from performing at your best? Are these symptoms triggering negative coping mechanisms like poor eating habits, weight gain, substance use, isolation from friends and family, or inflicting your close relationships?

YES, IT IS OKAY TO BE IMPERFECT
Our fears have a way of making us long to be perfect, to not mess up. We may shut down, isolate, or not put forth our best effort or our best self if we have a fear of failure. The idea that we can not succeed unless everything is perfect or we are perfect is not realistic. Together, we can work on positively coping when things aren't or can not be perfect. Together, I can help you become a happy, healthy, imperfectionist.
