Hispana WoW: Perfectionism – Accepting it in good faith.
In this new episode of Hispana WoW, we bring you as a special guest Dr. Eva Benmeleh, @drevatherapy, Clinical Psychologist. Discussing how to accept perfectionism in good faith.
My Dr. Eva Story
I pursued a doctoral degree in clinical psychology and worked with children and teens in various clinical settings. I began to work with the 0-5 age group in my post-doctoral years because I wholeheartedly believe that if we could focus on these issues when the children were little, we could avoid years of pain, guilt, and relationship disasters in families. I was born in Venezuela and moved to North Miami Beach with my family as a young child. Figuring out how to make friends, learn a new language, and earn good school grades was an adjustment, to say the least. From a young age, my parents’ upbringing and my schooling instilled within me a profound desire to help others as part of a bigger picture – Tikkun Olam, to participate in the general pursuit of social justice. I was the “good girl” and I aimed for perfection. It’s not about changing perfectionism, it’s about accepting it. I am a recovering perfectionist helping others struggling with perfectionism and anxiety.
