ACT is kind of like this...Imagine you have a baby tiger and when he whines you decide to feed him. No problem, right? Well, as that baby tiger gets bigger, his whines turn into growls. He has now grown so big and scary, it’s no longer a choice of whether you are going to feed him, you HAVE to feed him. He is now in control and calls the shots…Anxiety or Addiction is your tiger. Working together, you can learn to stop feeding him and take back control of what you do with this life.
"You can't control the waves, but you can learn how to surf." Working together, I can help you learn how to surf by starting to take steps towards a life you want while learning new ways to relate to anxiety so that it no longer dictates your life. I intentionally see fewer clients so that I can fully maximize my time and energy in order to help each client.
I get it. I’ve been there. We all suffer. Every last one of us. It’s normal and part of being human. And we all need someone with a different vantage point to help us work through our stuff. If you are a guy, it’s a fair chance that at least a part of you still considers therapy taboo. I did for the longest time. But it’s high time for us to ditch the outdated, bullshit model that men are supposed to “suck it up." and figure it all out on their own. Reach out to talk about how I can help.
