The entertainment industry is fraught with land mines.
You make one wrong step and it feels like you could just lose everything. To make matters worse, there’s not a lot of moderation or grey area; you’re on top of the world one minute, and the next you’re free falling to your destruction.
You’re surrounded by praise, loud music, sensory overload, constant push notifications, and then suddenly…you’re not. And the silence is deafening.
Navigating this rollercoaster and finding the middle ground would keep you from crashing, but you just can’t seem to do it on your own.
No one warned you about this part of your career, and the comparisons you make between yourself and everyone else have you fully convinced that its you
From the outside, no one might guess what’s going on inside. You’ve become a master at hiding your pain and the work it takes to keep that up is starting to wear on you. The pressure to keep up the façade is overwhelming and you fear you might crack. It has become exhausting.
I understand that you want to find the best therapist for you and that it’s hard to even know where to start.
