Starting counseling is a great choice when you feel stressed, down, anxious, overwhelmed, or frustrated. You deserve to feel excited about your life! In therapy, I work with clients to help them learn new ways of handling stress and emotions, managing difficult changes, and working toward lasting growth. I am eclectic in my approach to therapy, blending humanistic, cognitive-behavioral, and emotion-focused techniques. Therapy is not one-size-fits-all!

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.
