You strive for perfection in every aspect of your life, but despite your best efforts, it never feels like enough. The challenge of reconciling your cultural and self-identity with a sense of belonging leaves you exhausted and longing for a sense of safety and understanding. You push yourself relentlessly, aiming for flawlessness, yet even positive feedback fails to quell your self-doubt and inner turmoil. You cherish your cultural heritage and once took pride in your unique identity, but now you find yourself withdrawing from social interactions. The persistent feelings of low self-worth, coupled with a yearning to discover more about yourself but not knowing how, keep you isolated at home. You’ve noticed your child struggling as well, and it’s straining your intimate relationship with your partner. The recurring patterns of conflict are all too familiar, mirroring the dynamics you observed between your own parents. This realization adds to your stress and feelings of inadequacy, leaving you feeling overwhelmed and stuck.

You are at the right place for help.
