You deserve to be supported through a journey of self-discovery and self-empowerment. I love working with women, trans folx, and non-binary folx, and together we can talk about challenges like lack of motivation, anxiety, and self-esteem issues. It can be frustrating when one or many aspects of your life, such as work, family dynamics, or even sexual health, are causing those difficult feelings. Together, we can explore coping skills and strategies to help manage the challenges AND find ways to live more meaningfully—whatever that means for you.

Life can present challenges for all of us. Most people will experience some form of depression or anxiety at some point in their life. The support of an empathetic, non-judgmental counsellor can help us to create a plan to move forward when we feel ‘stuck’. If you are experiencing sadness, stress, or worry, I can provide a safe and non-judgmental environment for you to identify the goals that are most important to you, and support you in reaching those goals.

Many people come to therapy having felt a chronic sense of loneliness or disconnection, having had to hide or reject parts of the self in an effort to find belonging. Therapy is, for many of us, one of the only spaces where we can allow ourselves to be fully and deeply seen without judgment or expectations. It can become an important place to safely, and with guidance, express and explore the difficult emotions and experiences that have built up over time and are now feeling heavy, overwhelming, or harmful.

Self Esteem Counsellors

When should a person seek therapy for low self-esteem?

When self-esteem problems begin to disrupt the healthy daily functioning of an individual, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If a person finds that they are not engaging with friends for fear of being judged, not completing work assignments because they don’t think they’re capable, or not finding romantic love because they don’t feel they’re worthy of it, a therapist may be able to help.

What are the signs of low self-esteem?

Low self-esteem is a common issue that can affect a person's mental and emotional well-being. Some common signs of low self-esteem include negative self-talk, perfectionism, social anxiety, difficulty making decisions, an inability to set boundaries, people-pleasing, and others. A lack of belief in oneself or one’s abilities and a feeling of not being worthy or deserving underlie most of these characteristics.

What causes low self-esteem?

Feelings of low self-worth can begin in childhood or adulthood. Being raised by a highly critical parent or growing up feeling constant disapproval can stay with a person well into adulthood. Specific issues in adulthood may also be a cause of low self-esteem. An unhappy relationship, a dysfunctional work or school experience can impact a person’s feelings of self-worth.

How can therapy improve self-esteem?

Therapists can help identify negative thought patterns that keep the client stuck in a loop of destructive self-talk and develop coping skills to change the voice in their head. A therapist can help with goal-setting, so that clients are better able to stay on task and build confidence from successfully completing work they’re proud of. Coaching a client on how to better communicate can improve relationships. These skills can result in someone with low self-esteem feeling empowered and living with less fear.
