  • Poking Holes in Perfectionism

    Poking Holes in Perfectionism

    Did you know that some people don’t recognize they suffer from perfectionism? I was coaching a client who is a very Type-A personality. They were telling me about how “out-of-control” they were feeling–that feeling that all the plates are spinning and are about to crash at any moment. As they were telling me about some…

    Do you ever feel insecure when going out to meet a group of people because you’re afraid they’ll judge you?

    Don’t Take Candy From Strangers

    From a young age, we are taught what to believe. We are given baselines and guidelines on how to conduct our lives and what is considered “normal” or “acceptable” behavior.

    Living Your Life Without A Buffer

    Let’s be honest with each other…no one enjoys feeling negative emotions. It’s not that they can’t be useful or shouldn’t ever be present; but they just don’t feel good.
