Have a history of failed relationships that seem to have a common thread? Have you found yourself suddently agreeing to do things you formerly discounted ever doing? Do you often get off the phone with a friend, feel empty, and realize he/she didn't ask you one thing about how you're doing? You might be operating from some codependent ways of being you learned at a younger age. These traits served you in the past and may no longer be working in your adult life. Take the Codependent Self Evaluation below to explore your patterns. If you answer "frequently" to three or more, consider calling me for an appointment and we'll begin your process of living a more empowered, assertive, fulfilling life.
I'm not sure if I understand if I am self aware or practicing mindfulness
How much are you able to track your reactions, your bodily sensations during the day? Are you a product of your thoughts or are you able to be a witness to the one having thought? If you find the questions on this Mindfulness Evaluation foreign to you and you want to learn more, contact me and we'll get started on living a more mindful life.
My mind is racing much of the time and I have trouble sleeping
Perhaps you've been told you're an anxious person but never considered yourself a worrier. Maybe you are easily overwhelmed and sometimes have trouble prioritizing and completing tasks. You might even get antsy if you have nothing to be stressed about like on the first couple days of a vacation. If you score higher than 50 on this Penn State Worry Questionnaire and want to try a more peaceful way of moving through the world, consider scheduling a session with me.
I feel dull, angry, and sad all at once some days
