Hi, I’m Julia Manfre, LMHC, NCC
And I Provide Counseling for People Pleasers, Perfectionists, and Codependents in Boca Raton
I help People Pleasers, Perfectionists, and Codependents who are challenged with feeling responsible for everyone, feeling like they have to be perfect, and struggle with saying no to gain more confidence, assertiveness, awareness, and self-worth. Through helping you feel validated and understood, I provide a safe space where you can be open and honest, be completely yourself, and discover who you are and want you want.
Together we will uncover your truth, heal your past, and create the life you were always meant to have.
Helping People Pleaser, Perfectionists, and Codependents Overcome People Pleasing, Putting Other People First, and Not Feeling Good Enough
With pressure from family and society to be perfect; to look perfect, act perfect, have the perfect home, have the perfect spouse, have the perfect kids, etc., it can leave you feeling exhausted, overwhelmed, anxious, confused, and powerless.
Putting everyone else’s needs first and feeling responsible for their happiness can leave you feeling empty, lost, and broken. Feeling pulled in so many directions, trying to please everyone, you may not even know what your needs are. It’s no wonder you don’t even know who you are or what you want. If people pleasing, perfectionism, and co-dependency are ruining your life, then it may be time to get help.
Most People Don’t Understand People Pleasing, Perfectionism, and Codependency
People pleasing, perfectionism, and codependency can be a life-long issue starting in childhood. Most people don’t know that people pleasing, perfectionism, codependency are all related. They stem from not feeling worthy, lovable, capable, enough, and not feeling safe. Another thing that most people don’t know is that they are all rooted in shame.
They prevent you from knowing who you really are, because you have been worrying about everybody else’s needs and proving your worth your whole life. People pleasing, perfectionism, and codependency have stopped you from really getting to know yourself, your strengths, your worth, and having the life that you were meant to have.
It’s Possible to Start Loving Yourself, Knowing Your Worth, and Taking Better Care of Yourself
As your therapist, I will help your gain an awareness of how people pleasing, perfectionism, and codependency have been ruining your life and I will give you the tools and resources that you can quickly and easily use that will truly change your life.
Counseling sessions with me will help you:
- Have compassion, kindness, and empathy for yourself
- Feel your feelings instead of avoiding or numbing them
- Face your truth and your past and make peace with it
- Gain awareness and give you the confidence to make changes
- Get to know yourself on a soul level… who you are and what you want
Counseling can empower you to love yourself and change your life!
