When someone asks you how you’re doing, do you just say “fine” and change the subject?
That response might be alright for strangers, but what about close friends and family? Do you feel like you need to smile and keep up appearances even with the people you love?
If you suffer from anxiety or you feel like you need to work hard to fit in and please the people around you, you might not feel like you can tell the truth about how you really feel.
It’s ok to be honest: a lot of the time, you’re not really fine. You’re struggling with worry, with the state of your relationships, with internal conflicts that just don’t feel ok to talk about.
Counseling can bring you from a less than honest “I’m fine” to a wholehearted “I’m doing well.”
A trusted therapist meets you where you are and helps you talk through your fears, your pain, and anything else that is holding you back from being who you really are.
As your therapist, I listen and hold space for you to see your own inherent worth and beauty. I don’t emphasize any specific path toward wellness. It’s my job to walk beside you and support you as you find your own way to “I’m doing well.”
