Juggling roles of mother, wife, daughter, friend, coworker, caregiver and more, women often mask their struggles with a smile and keep moving. We show up for others and put our stuff off to the side. You could be doing it so well, in fact, that others might be shocked to know how deep your pain can feel sometimes.
Maybe you have talked with loved ones, read a thousand self-help books, completed devotionals, prayed faithfully and listened to multiple podcasts... anything to help you find joy, peace and perspective. Women I talk with are driven, smart and caring. They often know how to read and meet the needs of others but find it hard to identify and express their own needs. We wrestle with narratives that tell us no one is interested in our needs or that we are weak and too sensitive if we have any needs at all. Maybe the idea of receiving love without "earning" it feels vulnerable or wrong.
I help women navigate challenging life transitions, find healing from traumatic experiences, discover their sense of self after unhealthy relationships, create more joy in their lives and experience greater peace. It is possible to care for ourselves and others at the same time; we don't have to choose.
