Aren’t you tired of being compared to the generations that came before or after you? Being judged and criticized for what you are or are not? Comparing, being compared, and never feeling like you are good enough. I’ll admit, I’m guilty of this too.
I grew up in a big, loud, and most of the time, chaotic Mexican family, I know what it’s like to be afraid to ask questions, to speak up, and to try to do things differently. Because if I did, I would be faced with the question from everyone, including myself of, “who do you think you are”?
As the oldest in my family I always cared deeply for everyone (it was my job), and I forgot about taking care of myself, sound familiar?
In our families, which often carries in to our adult lives, we often struggled to feel seen or heard, and are made to feel like your emotions don’t matter, or they are just plain misunderstood. Which ultimately leaves us feeling like we’re alone in this big and sometimes terrifying world. That s**t is hard!
As a human (who happens to be a therapist) I recognize that the world I grew up in was vastly different than those around me, however, the emotions are almost universal.
Wether you are an adolescent or an adult, you are probably experiencing significant changes and transitions in your life – and in case no one told you…Change is normal and you are not alone!
Through our work together I will support, empower, and walk with you as you navigate this big, scary, fun, messy, and beautiful world.
