Life is already challenging, and when you add unexpected circumstances, it becomes even more challenging. Holding everything in and trying to deal with it yourself can be overwhelming and sometimes feel impossible. A simple talk with a caring and non-judgmental individual in a relaxed space may be what you need to work through life’s trials. I value respect, creativity, freedom, faith and forgiveness. I bring those values into the therapy space as we carefully untangle some of your toughest experiences at a pace that is comfortable for you.

On the outside you have it all together. Nobody would ever guess deep down you question your self-esteem, self-worth, sense of identity, and life's purpose. You frequently wonder who you are at your core if you aren't a parent, a spouse, an employee, or some other role. At times you feel lost and disconnected from yourself and others, which has resulted in anxiety, frustration, depression, and further isolation. Maybe you've experienced a life transition that has left you reeling and you finally feel ready for some soul searching and deep, candid internal conversations. If this is you, then we have work to do.

Most of my clients come to me having felt that something is "not right" in their life. Maybe their relationships are struggling, they are unhappy at work or school, or they are finding it difficult to keep up with all the changes in their lives. I enjoy partnering with both adults and adolescents (and their families). My work with adults tends to focus on self-esteem and self-acceptance, interpersonal conflicts, anxiety, and life transitions. I also enjoy working with adolescents who struggle with anxiety and self-esteem, are experiencing school failure or difficulty, or are struggling to cope with life's changes in healthy ways.

I specialize in working with couples and adult individuals- I'm trained in EFT and EMDR. I am currently accepting new clients! Do you feel like emotions can feel completely overwhelming or even seem to be absent? Other times you might respond automatically without understanding why- then you feel disconnected from the people you care about. Things like trauma, worry, shame, stress, or feelings of low self-esteem can keep you or your loved one chained from living freely. I love working through this process to help individuals and couples understand and then heal!

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.
