I offer different types of therapeutic avenues to explore, rework, release and address challenges old or new. We decide the timetable and scope of therapy together whether very focused change is desired or more in depth reworking is wanted. Some people also use therapy to maintain positive gains and have a unique place to speak/ find the truth in a safe, trusting environment. The focus is on enhancing and building on strengths to realize potential based on needs. I use brainspotting, polyvagal informed therapy (Unyte/ILS listening system) and IFS(Internal Family Systems) to deeply and often more rapidly release blocked/frozen issues

Together, we work through difficult experiences & life transitions with the lack of self-esteem, self-worth, and self-love being the root of the issue: depression & anxiety, the break-up you can’t get over, your overbearing parent, unhealthy expectations, feeling stuck in life, the killer of joy-comparison, boundary issues in relationships, self-defeating negative thoughts, poor self-care, or even just needing a mental health check up. Any of this sound familiar? I can help!

The first step is always the hardest, and I'd like to say congratulations on investing in yourself! Oftentimes, we find ourselves being present for others while neglecting our own needs, and it is time for you to choose yourself. Before taking this step, you may have found yourself feeling depressed, hopeless, anxious, or stressed. Maybe you're having difficulties with a complicated relationship, unresolved trauma, low self-esteem, a recent loss, or a significant life transition. Life is unpredictable, and no matter your situation, I provide a non-judgmental, supportive space where you can feel empowered, heard, and autonomous.

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.
