Does saying no make you uncomfortable or lead to ruminating thoughts?

Setting boundaries in your personal and professional lives can be challenging and overwhelming. It can feel uncomfortable to say ‘no’ or to establish limits with others. This is particularly common if you tend to avoid conflict and have people-pleasing tendencies. When you fail to set boundaries, you are prioritizing the needs of others rather than yourself. This can lead to feelings of overwhelm, resentment, and a deep sense that you are being taken advantage of.

Boundaries are an important part of any healthy relationship, be it with yourself or others. Therapy can help you learn to set boundaries in a way you feel confident about. Together, we can explore the root causes of why it is difficult to set boundaries and develop skills and strategies to set healthy boundaries in the future. Learn to say ‘no’ with confidence.

Have you lost some or all of the joy you used to experience?

Depression symptoms can manifest as feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and a lack of energy or interest in activities that were once enjoyable.

Therapy can be helpful in treating depression by providing support, understanding, and coping strategies. Therapy can help you experience improved mood, increased motivation, and a greater sense of hope and wellbeing.

Are you struggling to move forward after a loss or finding that your grief can feel like too much to handle on your own?

Do you have very high expectations of yourself and constantly reach for flawlessness? Are these standards accompanied by critical self-evaluation and constant concern for how you will be perceived by others?

Setting unrealistic standards and aiming for perfection can be exhausting and overwhelming. It can impact your self-esteem and result in anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder., and even burnout.

Therapy can help you gain control of your perfectionistic tendencies so you can embrace imperfection, set more realistic standards, and increase self-compassion.
