You feel like the needs and feelings of others come before your own.
It's as if your sense of self-worth is dependent on how helpful or accommodating you are.
You can't say no, and if you do, the guilt is just overwhelming.
You keep your emotions bottled up, until you inevitably explode. Or you shut down and withdraw.
How I Can Help:
When people think of boundaries they think of being rude or harsh. But in reality, setting boundaries for yourself is one of the most compassionate things you can do for yourself AND others. Without them, you're stuck feeling frustrated, drained, and resentful. It doesn't have to be this way.
In our work together I will help you:
Identify and become more aware of your feelings in relationship to others
Gain a better understanding of the barriers that are limiting your ability to set limits and boundaries
Learn to recognize how boundaries are being crossed
Develop skills necessary to communicate needs and feelings
Work on establishing self-care strategies
Sessions are available in-person or online for your convenience.
