You’re reflective, self-aware, and may be perceived as “the golden child.” On the inside, you feel overwhelmed by your sensitivities and don’t feel “good enough,” struggling to take up the same space you so readily create for others. Your constant striving and people-pleasing makes it difficult to keep boundaries and show up authentically in relationships, leading to burnout and anxiety. It’s possible to develop self-compassion and confidence that doesn’t hinge solely on what you achieve. You have the opportunity to step away from negative self-talk, allowing you to connect meaningfully with yourself, others, and your passions.

I specialize in treating anxiety, self esteem, and trauma in adults utilizing individual therapy and EMDR.
On the surface you have it “all together” but underneath are struggling with constant anxiety & self doubt. Despite being smart, driven, and incredibly hard working, life feels hard. No matter how much you do or accomplish, you never feel good enough. You always put others first and struggle to say no, even when overwhelmed. You want to heal from old wounds and break unhelpful patterns but you aren’t sure how.

Is your mind constantly racing? Experiencing self doubt or low self esteem? Have you noticed a change within yourself or your relationships? These are challenges that can have an impact on us in various aspects of our life. Therapy is a space where you can learn how to effectively cope, create and live a life that you describe as worth living. I've been seeing clients since 2016 and have a passion for the therapeutic process. I see my clients as equal partners. It's similar to you and I going on a road trip; you’re in the driver seat while I'm riding "shotgun (passenger)."

I’d like to walk with you on your journey of expansion. I am here to help you access your potential and develop the tools you need to have more fulfilling relationships with yourself and others.

Day-to-day stressors, relationships, money problems, and even social media can provoke anxiety, negatively impact self-esteem and diminish a sense of well-being.

"Be yourself," I always say. I'm here to provide a supportive environment that will foster growth and positive change. I provide culturally sensitive, individual therapy using evidence-based practices, including the application of a psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral approach.

Self Esteem Therapists

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.
