Louise McDermott MindOverMattersCounseling, MA, LPC, Counselor in Austin
As we sail into the summer months, ask yourself this question. Am I afraid to know my TRUE self? Why? Because hiding our imperfections is fruitless and exhausting. Nobody can be everything for everyone. Exceeding other's expectations drives crucial parts of our psyche into hiding. Looking outside to measure our insides can leave us depressed and anxious. How often do we truly recognize and support our own needs and values? Therapy empowers us to accept ourselves "as is" instead of "should be." Summer is a time for improvements, why not start with you?
My counseling approach stems from the belief that people need to be heard and understood. Through realistic mindsets, people can change. Increased self-awareness and acceptance aide personal growth. As they say, "pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional." What new steps today could reduce your suffering tomorrow?
"That by which we fall is that by which we rise." If that statement resonates with you, then I might be a good fit for you. I feel honored in helping functioning adults gain autonomy and thereby improve decision-making. These vital characteristics are often missing with unhealthy codependent relationships.
