~ Unraveling the Chaos. Unveiling New Hope. ~
Still waters run deep…and churn!
From the outside, you look like you have it all together. You’re admired for your accomplishments. Others are envious of your family, your job, your paycheck. Nothing seems to ruffle your polished exterior. If they only knew what turmoil and insecurity churned just below the surface! You worry all the time, fearing that someday you’ll be exposed as the charlatan you’re certain you are. “It’s all a house of cards,” you explain, “and I just know one day it will come crashing down.”
Painful memories and carefully guarded secrets haunt you like ghosts when no one is watching. If your admirers only knew how broken and damaged you feel! Would they still think you’re amazing then? Once in awhile, when no one is looking and you’re sure that it’s safe, you might let your guard down for a bit of relief from the pressure. On rare occasions, the pressure gets to be too much. You can’t hold the weight any more. Pieces of your darker self fly out, hitting unsuspecting admirers like shrapnel. Humiliated, you beg forgiveness, “I’m so sorry. I’m not sure what came over me. That’s not like me at all.” The meltdowns are rare enough that only a select few are even aware that this is likely to happen again. The incident is quickly brushed aside and you slide right back in to the façade and soldier on.
You deserve to finally relax.
What if you could finally shed the fear of being exposed? What if, for once in your life, you could show up as the real you? No more fear or shame…just 100% YOU. What if you were just as loved and admired without the mask? You could finally break free of all that worry and the weight of trying to hide embarrassing secrets.
What if you could finally bring those painful, shameful secrets out of the closet? What if they could finally be healed and put to rest? You would be free to express your thoughts and feelings without fear of exploding and hurting others. No more humiliating apologies — just real connections and honest communication.
Imagine what you could accomplish if you were free to create the life you wanted to live and not the one you think others want to see. You could freely say “yes” or “no” to any opportunity simply because it was your choice. No more guilt trips. No more working yourself to exhaustion. No more living your life to please others.
A different kind of therapy
Making the choice to begin healing can be a scary proposition. That’s why you need a guide — someone who knows the path and can steer you safely around the traps. You need someone who can see things from your perspective. I’ve walked the path of healing, learning to shed the haunting ghosts of the past, and discovering the real me. It’s not my style to sit up high and point you in the right direction. Instead, I’ll sit in the muck with you, showing by doing, and never expecting from you what I won’t do.
At telEspera Counseling, you’ll discover a different kind of therapy that’s tailored just for you. I’ve been helping people just like you since 2009 and have a lot of tools in my therapy bag. I’m adding new ones all the time, too! We’ll use whatever is necessary to restore (or create!) your confidence so you can finally relax and enjoy the benefits of all your hard work.
It matters who you work with and it’s not just about their expertise. You deserve to work with a therapist who is your perfect fit. That’s why I’m offering you a free consultation so we can get to know each other. Once we decide that we’re a ideal match, we’ll set up a time to begin working together. In the unlikely event that we’re not a good fit, I’ll still help you find someone who is just right for you.
