You are a high-functioning successful professional. You are aware that people are impressed, even intimidated by you. You don't go around announcing it, but in some ways, you are brilliant.
So why do you feel like the bottom could drop out of your life at any minute?
You know who you are. I know who you are as well.
If you are ready to get to the root of it all, I am right here.
Conflict and Relationships
There are some people we wish would just go away. Whether they are family or co-workers, neighbors, or even long-time friends, they make us anxious or afraid, angry or uncomfortable - when we're around them, it just sucks!
Obviously, as long as they affect your happiness, they have power over you. And now is the time to take your power back. It may be that the person is truly toxic and unreasonable, or it may be that your own issues prevent you from keeping things drama-free. The truth is probably more complicated than these two extremes, but it sounds like you need clarity on what is really happening, and why. Together we can strategize to solve this conflict. The strength and self-knowledge which await you are deep.
Improving Low Self-Esteem
So many of our choices are driven by pictures - of who we are and who we "should" be, what we "should" do, and also how the world "should" respond to us. As these pictures change and shatter - sometimes, so do we.
A related developmental process is becoming aware of the more subtle ways that people need each other, and use each other, and grow through each other...this can be challenging and stressful.
I can help you find clarity, direction, and self-knowledge. I can help you navigate your place in the world and in relationships, and discover how you can most really love being you!
Anxiety and Panic Attacks
Anxiety is a torment, and panic attacks are brutal. Anxiety is so very personal and isolating in its terror...and yet, it is also a worldwide epidemic. It seems strange, all these brothers and sisters on earth suffering in disconnect, alone together at the same time - doesn't it? The good news is that you can get control of your thoughts and your nervous system. You can set yourself free.
You know in your own experience, even if it was brief, that you have felt peace and joy before in your life. This means that it is inside of you, waiting for expression. Together we can journey to rediscover that space, not as a moment in time, but as a state of being - a way of life. If you are willing to do the work with me, I can help you reach the infinite love and peace which is the truth of your being.
Secrets Past and Present
Many people feel tormented by past events in which they were a victim. Often it is something that they have never shared with another person. They still feel rage, and shame. Maybe they never felt safe enough to talk about, like no one else could ever understand. If you need to talk about it, if you want to set yourself free from the power of the past, I am here.
Maybe you are struggling with secrets you are keeping now - perhaps an affair; perhaps an obsession. You need to share it with someone, to work it out. I am here for you, as well.
The first time i walked into his office I immediately felt welcome and comfortable. I was free to talk about anything - there were absolutely no judgements, nothing but genuine, honest listening and feedback.
I am now in a loving relationship, reaching for my life goals, and am able to have many, many small successes as well. I no longer suffer with anxiety - I still get scared, but I do it anyway - whatever it is! I have been able to restore my business and thrive again!
I highly recommend Ray Rivers . He possess a very calming presence, excitement and passion, creating a space of freedom and safety. I honestly do not know where I would be today had I not found him when I did!
