The Cuckoo Syndrome
The Secret To Breaking Free From Unhealthy Relationships, Toxic Thinking, and Self-Sabotaging Behavior
By Andrea Anderson Polk,
Licensed Professional Counselor

“I walk in relationship with my clients, and we discover the treasures that reside in the depths of the human heart. We arise in the illuminating of truth – letting go of the false narratives that block us from experiencing healing.”
— ANDREA ANDERSON POLK
Life doesn't always go the way you plan. Whether it's certain people that drain you, or your dreams are diminished, or you're just plain stuck - we all long to feel alive, be truly known, and fully self-expressed. Despite your best efforts and the knowledge you've gained - deep down, it feels like something's missing.
You've come to the right place.
We have a tendency to put others needs before our own, as a result, we can neglect our relationship with ourselves. Perhaps you downplay your heart’s desires, ignore your intuition, or wonder if something is wrong with you.
You are created for an extraordinary life of passion and purpose --not to accept the status quo, merely survive, or just go through the motions. Life’s too short to settle.
There is no better time than the present to get intentional about your aspirations, reevaluate your relationships, and break free from fear. Are ready to get answers on what will truly fulfill you and make an impact?
"Come visit, laugh, enjoy, and stop taking yourself so seriously. Come to wander into the reality of who you really are. Come enjoy the beauty of your Creator and share in the enjoyment of being alive."
