I'm curious about people: how our unique histories have shaped us, how we relate to each other & what motivates our behavior in relationships. I specialize in processing relationships with couples & individuals struggling with codependency, communication, anxiety, trauma, self-esteem & identity. We often get stuck in repetitive behavioral/thinking patterns that block us from living the lives we yearn for. We may feel misunderstood or disconnected in our relationships. We may avoid intimacy because we don’t want to get hurt again. We may have a harsh inner critic & lack self-love. Do you experience this in your life?

As a self-identified gay man, I am quite familiar first-hand with the process of 'coming out' in a predominantly heterosexual normative, patriarchal, society. I can be your ally dealing with issues of self-esteem, anxiety, depression, guilt, shame, how they affect relationships, be it romantic, sexual, purely platonic, or work-related, and any compulsive behavior you may experience in response to developmental trauma. I am equally at ease and experience working with individuals and couples across the entire gender and sexual identity spectrum.

I help clients shine a light on things not serving them - limiting beliefs, negative habits, low self-esteem, self-critical thoughts, or unhealthy relationships. Each of my clients is an expert in their own experience, and my role as a therapist is to help you understand and take affirming actions and positive steps in the right direction. I am particularly interested in working with people navigating transition, relationship issues, or a deep desire for a greater sense of meaning or healthier self-esteem. I also enjoy working with teens and emerging adults struggling to define themselves or struggling with anxiety or depression.

I specialize in self-esteem and working with attachment-related trauma, which is sometimes referred to as complex trauma or inner child wounding. This can lead to anxiety, depression, unhealthy behaviors, and a cycle of unfulfilling pattens or relationships. I help you connect with your inner world (feelings, needs, values) and explore how past experiences have shaped who you are. Through the safety of a compassionate and nurturing therapeutic relationship, we'll get curious about what is holding you back, define what is important to you, explore any unhelpful patterns you may be stuck in, and start trying new ways of coping.

Therapy can be Fun, Exciting, and Inspiring. (I get back to everyone within 14 hours.) You're hesitant since it's your first time in therapy; perhaps you have given up hope. You feel empty, hopeless, and depressed. Every day is a struggle due to anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem. Maybe you have past family trauma that hasn't been dealt with. Maybe there are cultural confines that have made you feel shackled, lost, and voiceless. I help people who are dealing with depression and anxiety have a new experience by exploring other possibilities to cope as well as becoming more self-aware which can lead to different choices.

I invite you to visit my website drehrhart.com for a more complete sense of how I can help you, or you and your partner, who I am, and how I work. In short though, if we work together we would explore the dynamic terrain of your relationships - your relationships to your emotions, your thoughts, your behavior, to your idea of self, and to others. This is done in a relationship of genuine curiosity and compassion, so that change, in place of judgement, is fostered. Eventually, this productive and curious environment or relationship that we foster together, can be internalized and taken with you as a tool for your life journey.

I specialize in working with you in times of change whether wanted or unwanted; un-coupling or committing; wits-end or letting go or starting again. By looking at habits, patterns, defense structures, and super powers, we build awareness of their purpose and see how we can repurpose them, let them go or build new ones through deepening and allowing, owning disavowed parts, crafting new narratives. We help you find compassion and respect for self and others, growing your self esteem and relational wisdom.

Self Esteem Therapists
Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum.
