Are You Struggling With Perfectionism?

Home » Areas of Specialty » Perfectionism

The tendency to want to be perfect in most or all aspects of life can cause stress, but it can also result from a mental health condition such as anxiety or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Striving for perfection can also be related to childhood trauma. If a person learned they only received love when they performed well, they might carry these core beliefs into their adult life.

Available Treatment Options

Therapist interventions for perfectionism include examining the thought patterns and core beliefs related to perfectionism and then challenging them. By challenging thoughts and beliefs, a person may see how their psyche is harming them. This awareness can create change, or change may come through further exploration and counseling intervention.
