-Have you had a difficult or traumatic experience and no matter what you try you just can't seem to feel better?
- Are you struggling with the aftermath of childhood abuse and don't yet know how to heal and move forward?
-Do you feel not like yourself lately and you're questioning whether you can trust yourself and your feelings?
- Do you fear if people really knew you they wouldn’t like you?
- Do others see you as successful but on the inside you feel anxious and uncertain of your worth?
-Are you grieving a loss? Have others expressed you should "be over it" by now?
-Do you doubt yourself, your career, relationship, or some aspect of your life?
