Exhaustion & Overwhelm

Tired AF...Of Being Everything To Everyone

Your spouse says that there’s something wrong... that you need to see someone. People notice that you don’t have the same spark that you used to and you notice things are starting to slip through the cracks. You’re not as focused on what you need for yourself, you’re fighting with your spouse and kid(s) more, and your patience has been wearing thin. Very thin.

You notice yourself snapping easier than before and you know that there’s something wrong, but you’re just not sure what it is, let alone how to fix it. In fact, even figuring out what to fix sounds downright exhausting.

You don't have to worry. I can help.

You’re tired.

Tired of fixing and being the one that everyone comes to for everything.

You used to be a person who knew what she wanted and who she was but somehow that’s fallen by the wayside while you were busy raising your kid(s).

You’re everything to everyone and, you know, that used to work well but now you’re becoming resentful.

There’s nothing that anyone is actually doing to you, but you have come to realize that you don’t even have time to take care of yourself with all of the things that you’re doing for everyone else.

Life now seems like it’s just a series of work roles - sets of expectations about what you should do, how you should do it, and what you should be doing for other people.

You’re doing all the right things, but instead of enjoying them because you want to, everything has just turned into a chore.

If you’re being honest, you just aren’t as happy as you thought you were. I can help.

Every day, there’s an ever growing list of “shoulds” to keep up with: cook the dinner, play with the kids, have sex with the partner, go above and beyond at work, remember the friends’ birthdays, clean the house, bake the cookies, and on and on it goes.

Lather. Rinse. Repeat.

You struggle with saying "no" and your laundry list of things to do keeps getting longer and longer. And the longer your list gets, the less you want to do any of them. 

Your relationships have taken a toll - you notice it everywhere - work, home, and even in how you’re ignoring your own needs.

It’s all so overwhelming.

You are not required to set yourself on fire to keep others warm.

Being a people pleaser has actually worked for you...until now. It created a sense of security but now you only feel important to people when you’re doing something for them. It’s left you feeling exhausted, stuck, and unfulfilled.

You are tired…. Of everything…

You are so. Fucking. Tired… of being tired.

You want to feel better, but you also don’t want to let anyone down.

I'm here to help you make this a reality.

Imagine that things don’t have to continue to be this way.

Imagine that you can find balance again and “all the things” don’t feel so overwhelming. Imagine your relationships, romantic and otherwise, are more fulfilling. Imagine you feel like you’re killing it in all areas in your life, instead of life being sucked out of you. Imagine you are tending to your emotional and physical needs.

By integrating Mindfulness and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), therapy can help you rediscover the person that is inside of you. I know, I know, it feels like one more thing that you have to add to your “To Do” list.

But something has to change, right?
