Kristen Jacobsen, MA, LCPC, Counselor in Chicago
Have you been feeling anxious and overwhelmed? Are you struggling with perfectionism and a fear of disappointing others? At the root of anxiety is a deep sense of caring. It's not wanting to do something wrong, not wanting to hurt someone's feelings, and a human need to be accepted. It leads to self-doubt and questioning the intentions of others. Anxiety is more than "just worrying," but rather a need to fix something that isn't yet a problem. It can lead to self-doubt, questioning the intentions of others, overanalyzing, and fear of failure.
It's challenging to confront the idea that you might need help. Our pride can be an attempt at self-preservation. There's a perception that being emotionally stoic is indicative of strength, but it takes bravery to face the things we have spent so much energy attempting to avoid.
My goal is to guide you through the therapeutic experience and offer a safe, encouraging, and non-judgmental environment. We will establish a collaborative rapport, within which you will be able to understand your emotions more authentically, gain insight into inhibiting thought processes, change counterproductive patterns of behavior, and develop healthy ways of coping.
