Hi, I'm Dr. Christina!
Wondering how I know your struggles? Well, I’m a recovering perfectionist myself. I fell into the perfectionism trap of trying to be the perfect daughter, perfect student, perfect employee, have the perfect body, act perfect, and ‘live perfect.’ And much of the time, I felt perfectly miserable!
I lived the If/Then trap of “I’ll be happy if, I’ll be confident when….” I frantically pursued happiness, fulfillment, and finding true meaning for my life. But no matter how much I tried—I couldn’t get ‘perfect enough.’ Which inevitably led to a lack of fulfillment and happiness in my life.
I never reached perfection (nobody does!), but instead, got mired down in common perfectionism traps of self-criticism, overwork, exhaustion, and feeling empty inside. I felt trapped in this vicious cycle.
Like you, I wanted peace and happiness and on some level, I knew the way I had been relating to myself was not healthy. So, I dug deep and worked hard to crawl out from underneath the perfectionist hole I was under. And you know what? It wasn’t easy but I was so worth it!
Along my journey I have helped other women achieve perfectionism freedom and I now I am here to help you too!
