Caregiver Stress

On the outside everything looks pretty put together.

 

You have been able to manage a lot.

You are a high achiever and you really capitalize on your time.

But your energy is low because there hasn't been much time for you to stop.

 

Maybe you don't even know what "stopping" looks like.

 

Your friends tell you that you do a lot,

but they really don't even know.

Your family also sees it,

but they do not know how to help and often just keep asking for more.

The time you feel the most anxiety is right before bed. When you go to lie down and the to-do list begins flooding in: all the things you haven't done.

 

Your self care keeps falling to the bottom of the list. Maybe you've also been engaged in negative coping that has set you back further.

 

You know you want to make a change but you're not sure how to.

You don't want to be selfish, but this isn't working anymore.

You're getting burnt out.

 

It's time to try another way.

 

Higher Ground Wellness specializes in working with medical professionals, therapists and those who feel this overbearing pressure of functioning as a caregiver, empath and high achiever.

 

Within therapy, we work to find clarity for you and your needs so boundaries are not blurred, and you can begin putting yourself as a priority. This includes taking a good look at the anxiety, trauma, depression and frustration you are experiencing while also creating positive changes within your life for you to make adjustments and meet your goals. We utilize a Solution Focused and Mindful approach to get you to Higher Ground and keep you there.
