Be Honest with Yourself - 'Ask Dorothy'
Be Honest with Yourself - 'Ask Dorothy'
The anxiety of my 17-yr old client was over the top.  She is a high performer in every aspect of her life; and excels in all of her courses as well as the game of basketball and soccer to which she plays at an elite level. Her anxiety was a lot bigger than she ever admitted to.  The stress of always needing to do her best; and to compete with her peers in school and in sport, took its toll on her body. She was diagnosed with a bleeding ulcer. Join me in the episode of 'Therapy Best Practices' and the certain truth that frees you from anxiety whenever you are willing to be self-honest. 😉👌 Have a Therapy Question for Me?
