Therapist in Silverlake, CA
Often my clients wish they didn’t need so much validation from others in order to have confidence in themselves or they want to be more assertive. They might feel strangely alone even in their closest relationships. Despite being capable and smart & having some degree of insight about how they were raised, people I treat know there is more to the story. Why do they have so much self-doubt or a harsh inner voice or look to others to say “you’re okay”?
This is where I come in.
I help people dig deep into the stories & experiences that shaped them and how those influences sometimes hijack their way of thinking and their sense of self. It is possible to feel more comfortable with who you are, though flawed, sometimes insecure, and “difficult” at times. Knowing what you need – and being comfortable asserting those needs – without guilt and with conviction – is not out of your reach.
If you want to feel more at ease, being able to not just respond to life but be in your life & have more agency with directing your life, I’d love to help you get there.
