Life is hard.
Here are a few of the many things our mind says to us. “I’m not good enough. I am worthless. What’s the point?” It is easy to let those thoughts push us around.
We might try eliminating those thoughts by avoiding certain activities or places to feel better. We might quit trying in life and withdraw from people or things we used to enjoy doing.
We may even feel better in the short term, but these thoughts keep returning in the long term. And we keep doing the same things repeatedly – with no results.
We end up stuck, wasting our time and energy, ending up in poor health, feeling drained from our jobs, and choosing to stay in unhappy relationships because that is all we know.
It is NEVER too late.
In the face of many hardships, there is still a way forward. You can always build the life you want. No rules say you can’t change your mind or try something different.
You don’t have to give in to those thoughts, feelings, or rules you created – keeping you unhappy, stressed, burned out, and hopeless.
There is a choice as to how much attention you want to pay to those thoughts and what actions you want to take.
Believe it or not, you do have control over your actions and how you want to live your life.
Build the life you want.
There are theoretical frameworks supporting the work we will do.
Using cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and acceptance commitment therapy (ACT) as our framework, you will learn to stop avoiding and, more importantly, struggling with emotions.
You will learn to practice more effective behaviors based on your values and goals.
Set yourself up for success.
There will always be hardships in life, but these hardships don’t need to prevent you from moving forward and creating your best life.
We will work together to set you up for success by being mindful of your behavior, paying attention to your values, and committing to action.
