You don’t have to struggle in order to be successful. 

By the end of each day, you’re completely drained. You scroll through a mental list of all the things left undone, all the ways you could’ve done better or more. You struggle to let go of this inner angst and maybe even see it as a necessary evening ritual. 

You long to quiet your fears but are terrified of losing your drive and sense of control in the process. And so, day after day, you keep pushing yourself to meet loftier expectations. Dreading the thought of letting anyone down.

I know how it feels to live like this, because I’ve been there myself. And through my work as a licensed psychologist, it’s my pleasure to support clients like you. I’m Carolyn Rubenstein.
