Perfectionism & High Achievers

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 don't fully understand. Your family also sees it, but they do not know
how to help and often just keep asking for more.

When you try to rest 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.

Perfectionists aren't perfect. Rather, they spend a lot of time trying to meet personal expectations and goals that they construct and do not feel a sense of accomplishment with 'good enough'. Perfectionists are constantly striving to be better and get frustrated and overwhelmed when something doesn't work out the way they planned. 
 
It's time to try another way.

Your time and energy are the two things you cannot get back. 

Nichole Coyne specializes in working with Perfectionists and High Achievers as well as giving professionals (medical professionals, therapists and other providers).
 
We give back to the Givers because we know how hard it can be to provide support while doing what you love.
 
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.
