Stressed Out

You jolt awake in bed, heart pounding and sweat pooling.

The light from your digital clock bathes the room in an eerie glow. It’s the middle of the night – again.

This anxiety is becoming unbearable.

Relationship Falling Apart

It often feels like you’re the only one putting in any effort.

Why am I always the one who has to bring up the same !@#$ topic? I’m done with this

Even when you’re with your partner, you feel desperately alone.

You wonder if there’s no choice but to stand by and watch as your love disintegrates.

Work = Chore

You stare in a daze at your screen. Any promise of fulfillment in this job has long passed.

Each day that goes by, you grow more emotionally drained and dejected.

And worse, it feels like you’re running out of time to make any sort of change.

OUT of Options

Self-help books and podcasts have proven useless. So has well-meaning advice from friends.

Relationship exercises have helped, but never for more than a few days.

No matter what you try, it’s no use. You feel like a failure.

OUT of Time

You’re slowly accepting that these issues won’t go away or improve on their own.

And it’s frightening to consider the possibility that you may be stuck on this path forever.

You’re getting older and feel like you’re missing out on a lot.

In Touch

The fact that you’re reading this right now shows you have the courage to face your fears.

You have agency and strength within you, but you can’t maximize that power without some guidance.

It’s time to, quite literally, get in touch with your feelings and someone who can help you sort them out. I am that someone.
