“I don't recognize myself. I don't know who I am anymore. And it's all fun and games until someone loses an I.” – Don Winslow, Author
How Can You Be Yourself,
When You Don't Know Who You Are Anymore?
Often, we focus on the things that are happening to us on the outside. Career. Relationships. Success.
But sometimes it's about what isn't happening. The vocation we did not pursue. The things we are not receiving. The dreams unlived.
These lost opportunities leave you disconnected from your feelings. Feeling empty. Unsatisfied.
Critical of yourself and emotionally numb.
But every darkness has gifts to offer to those who are willing to face them.
Most therapy devotes itself to who you think you are: your conscious identity with all of its fear, doubt, guilt, and shame. It seeks to better that self in some way, so that your life edges closer to your idea of perfection.
My therapy supports you in doing something far more radical: looking deeply into past wounds and embracing what is most feared, so that you create the conditions for change. It's about taking responsibility for your life and actions and discovering deeper, more deliberate and intentional ways of being in relationship with yourself and others.
There are no smoke and mirrors. My mission is not to give you answers; it is to help you discover your own. Learn to see yourself. Open what has been closed.
We don't create a vision for you. We give voice to what's already there.
And together we shape and clarify until your light is shining like a beacon.
If you are ready to take this courageous step and embrace what's ahead, contact me for more info. I'm a good fit for curious, observant, and insightful people who feel that the old ways of coping aren't working any more.
Together, we will find you, if you desire to be found.
About Lourdes Viado
Therapy with me differs from other therapists in that there is a focus on your unconscious life. What does that mean? To put it simply, think of an image of an iceberg. The part of the iceberg that lies above the water is what is conscious. That is what you are aware of. You are aware that you are reading these words or that you are sitting in a chair.
