I am Registered Social Worker and Psychotherapist specializing in issues related to anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem. I work with clients who suffer from crippling anxiety, worry, and panic. Low motivation, depression, and perfectionism. I assist individuals who lack self-esteem, have strong defence mechanisms, and feel that things are not going their way in life. If you change the way you think, you can change the way you feel. My clients learn, grow, and evolve in a non-judgemental and supportive environment where they can master new coping skills to take control over their lives.

Are you feeling trapped, anxious, or hopeless? Is your body holding onto the painful experiences that you have endured? I work in partnership with my clients to process the enduring impacts of trauma. These challenges may surface as difficulties in relationships and attachments, low self-esteem, depression, and anxiety. I aim to create a warm and safe environment for clients to share their experiences. There's an intricate dance between the seen and unseen, the physical and the emotional, and I've come to realize that true understanding lies at the intersection of these realms.

We’ve heard “life is full of ups and downs”, but have you ever thought to yourself “why does it have to feel so hard”? Maybe a new life transition, interpersonal struggles or trying to balance all of life’s stressors is causing you to feel stuck, preoccupied with worry or overwhelmed. Worry due to relationship struggles, anxiety, loss or feeling as though you aren’t meeting expectations can be difficult, but you do not have to hold the weight alone.

Maybe you’ve been to therapy or deep-dived online for answers, numerous times. You’re also a highly sensitive person, an empath who feels like you are drowning. You are a deep thinker and meaning maker. You have strong values. You struggle to control or feel your emotions, chronically overextend yourself, feel stuck, and experience overwhelm. You may also be in chronic pain or discomfort. You may be neurodiverse. This might look like people pleasing, goodism, overthinking, avoidance, low self-esteem, procrastination, over planning, or burnout. It’s common for this to cause difficulty in your relationships with friends and family.

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.
