What clients have said about Jilba Wallace, MA, LPC
One client used the words “compelling, very uplifting, kinda freeing” about the work we did together.
I worked with a married woman in her forties with grown children. She came to me because she couldn’t seem to get over her mother’s death ten years ago. She’d also had a recent trauma at her job and found herself avoiding work, feeling stuck and she was starting to block herself off from her family. She had always been the “problem solver” and the “peacemaker” but now she was sick of this. She longed for a more fulfilling job, had gotten tired of hovering over kids or dealing with the chaos of her extended family, and was feeling panicky and stressed. She felt she may have been sliding into a depression.
In our sessions, she explored her issues through movement and mindfulness training. She had many insights about how burying her needs contributed to her problems. Soon, she was able to “accept the fact that I’m me, warts and all”. She felt comfortable and happy again with herself. She found more balance in her work and home life. She identified what kind of career would be fulfilling and made steps to change this. She is now not so guilty about taking care of herself and has her self-confidence back. Her stress level is much lower. She is honest with her family about her needs and is letting go of “fixing” them.
