Do you have them too?  Do you sacrifice yourself so others may like you?

Do you feel scared that others might be disappointed in you?

Is it hard to say no?

Is it hard to say yes to you?

Do you feel unloved or unappreciated?


Not all of us are people pleasers, but there sure are a lot of us out here who have a hard time with this.  I know it comes with a good heart, but it goes awry.  Doesn’t it?  And what happens?  

We become fake.  

Hey, I am right here in this mess with you.  This has been one of my biggest areas of self growth.  Letting myself be me.  And letting others be them.  Period.


There’s a manipulation present in people pleasing.  


It’s true.  

When I am trying to “make you” like me, I am being inauthentic.  And I am wanting to manipulate you.  That sounds bad.  Well, it is.  

Recognizing this is a huge first step in changing this dynamic.


And here’s another huge step!

I am offering a workshop next Thursday from 5:30-630pm over Zoom to explore these important aspects of people pleasing:


Why do we do this?

How did we learn this?

What are the benefits of changing this?

How do we change this?

And what is the freedom that comes from freeing yourself and freeing you from people pleasing pitfalls?


I’d love to help you choose to step into a different dynamic.  A more powerful relationship with you. One that lets you be more true to yourself and to others.  Let me know if you have any questions.

Dr. Heather Browne PsyD, LMFT helps people recognize the power of communication.  It is one of our most important skills that we have, and yet we don’t consider our understanding, approach, belief, and therefore, miss our possibilities.  Living with a paranoid schizophrenic mother gave Dr. Heather a unique and powerful awareness that no one has the same reality, though we believe we do.  Utilizing this revolutionary awareness has allowed her to transform communication within self and within all other types of relationship.  This is the hidden key to acceptance.  And this is her mission to share.

As a relationship expert, Dr. Heather Browne has worked with thousands of individuals and couples in psychotherapy.  She is a TedX Speaker and Keynote Speaker. Her couple’s communication book will be out 1/24. She is published in hundreds of journals, has an active YouTube channel, has been featured on ABC-7 news, was the relationship expert on KDOC Daybreak OC, and is published in Inc., Toronto Sun, Thriving Family Magazine,  Light + Life, BRAINZ, Scary Mommy, and Psychology Today.  She is a regular guest blogger for both Links for Shrinks and for Marriage Friendly Therapists. She offers a weekly newsletter packed with tips and techniques to improve relationships and has monthly workshops!
