People who come to see me are:
- Athletes who have taken to managing chaotic emotional lives with structure and physical exertion.
Perhaps you are…
o Interested in the self-talk you notice as you push yourself physically.
o Realizing that athletics offers you something that feels helpful, but fear that physical exertion is starting to become an insufficient way of tolerating or managing your emotions.
o Worried that you make use of physical exertion to overcome or mask your emotional life.
o Curious if you could make room to sit with or tolerate your emotions rather than having to work to “overcome” them.
