Each day, I strive to serve as a calming, experienced guide when things get stressful for my clients. Real estate can be complex and present challenges along the way, but having someone by your side who cares and has years of experience makes all the difference. In order to remain calm in the midst of stressful situations for my clients, I have learned how to cope with my own personal anxieties in healthy ways. To help me get to where I am today, I have worked with counselors and relied on friends and family when I need support. At the beginning of my career, I enlisted the help of Licensed Professional Counselor/LCMHC, Ken Frazier, to guide me through my anxiety.
Having a professional counselor by my side has been helpful in both my personal life and career. With Ken’s encouragement, I’ve cultivated positive outlets for stress — like spending a couple of hours at Break ‘N Bash or practicing mindfulness. Everyone copes with anxiety differently, especially in this moment in time, but if you feel you are having trouble managing your anxiety, I encourage you to find a licensed professional counselor so that you can be at your best for all of the challenges and opportunities that life puts before you.
I am so grateful to have been a client of Ken Frazier over the years and have learned so much from him. In June, Ken was a guest on my podcast, Melissa Unscripted, and we discussed the importance of normalizing anxiety while not letting it define or control us.
