Welcome to Happily Imperfect

Welcome to Happily ImperfectPerfectionism — the need to get and do everything just right — can be a very disabling, difficult behavior to overcome. The perfectionist often overthinks the things he or she cares most about, to the point of indecision. Every decision is revisited and the accompanying self-criticism can be withering.

What can a perfectionist do to help alleviate some of this stress and anxiety? How can they overcome their perfectionism, or at least reduce it to the point of it being less overwhelming?

That’s why I’m pleased to introduce Happily Imperfect with Sharon Martin, LCSW. Sharon is a licensed psychotherapist practicing in San Jose, CA with a practice that specializes in helping over-stressed, high achieving perfectionists to create balanced, peaceful lives. You can learn more about her here.

Please give Sharon a warm Psych Central welcome!
