A perfectionist and high-achiever like you may struggle to ever feel like you’re “good enough” and this is stressful and tiring. You want some relief but it’s hard to talk about it with others because you’re trying to up with these high expectations. If you’re a caretaker or people-pleaser, you’re too busy taking care of everyone and everything else but yourself. Saying “no” to someone else’s request for help doesn’t feel like an option. For people from marginalized communities and identities, It is often very hard to imagine telling someone how you’re really doing because you don’t want to burden someone else with your “issues.” I want to hear your story and help you feel less overwhelmed and alone. You can have a life that is motivated by more than just the interests of others. You can take care of yourself while still feeling connected to others. You don’t have to keep apologizing for expressing yourself or attending to your own needs. In fact, how would it be to feel confident and secure in who you are? I provide gentle and non-judgmental support to help you move from stuck places and get the validation and support you need to move forward, while also being directive and practical in my approach. I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist who identifies as a Korean American cisgender female. I value the importance of attending to peoples’ various identities and how this makes a difference in your life. Please don’t hesitate to reach out!
