Louise McDermott, MA, LPC, Counselor in Austin
Let's face it, life just sucks sometimes. Ask yourself this question: How willing am I to know the real me? Why? Because trying to mask our imperfections is exhausting. Nobody can be everything to everyone. The good news is that there are two things to try if you're feeling "stuck." They are discovering and knowing our true self, and living life in accordance to our true selves. Seldom do we objectively self reflect and identify our basic needs and values. If you relate to these statements, perhaps you are ready to discover and create a more fulfilling life.
My approach to therapy is rooted in the notion that people need to be recognized and heard. And when willing, people can change. Increased self-awareness and acceptance are vital to personal growth. Like they say, "pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional." What actions might reduce your suffering?
"Sometimes the only thing you can change is your perspective." If that statement resonates with you, then I might be a good fit for you. I enjoy helping functional adults who are unnecessarily hard on themselves. People from alcoholic homes sometimes exhibit this trait. Perhaps I can help you too.
