Whether you're interested in improving your relationship with your partner(s), need extra support exploring self esteem and challenging diet culture, exploring affirming care, or something more individualized, I'd love to work along side you to improve your quality of life- however your vision for yourself looks like!.
While active listening is an important skill for a therapist, listening is only a small part of what therapy might look like. Therapy is meant to be explorative, challenging, and a place that is solely for you and your needs. It is meant to give you tools and skills to improve daily functioning, identify meaning and fulfillment for yourself, create and maintain a safe headspace of thoughts, and build strong, intrapersonal, emotional intelligence. Sometimes our anxiety and other mental health issues we have developed over time can get into the way of living well or even knowing what that means for ourselves or our partner(s).

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.
