You appear to have it together all the time, but deep down you feel a chronic sense that you are falling short, imperfect or not good enough. You may be exhausted from the voice of imposter syndrome. Holding boundaries is so hard. You feel so much pressure to get it perfect or get it right. You question your capabilities. You might not even remember a time things didn’t feel this way. But one thing is for sure: you’re ready for some relief. You’re ready to let go of questioning yourself. You’re ready to move past the fears that keep you stuck. Most of all, you’re ready to trust deeply in your worth and capabilities

As humans we all feel "out of balance" at different times throughout our lives. This can quickly get away from us and snowball into larger issues. Sometimes, life feels like something that "happens to us" and disrupts our ability to self-regulate or grow beyond our current circumstances, leaving us feeling stuck. Most of us desire to feel empowered and able to grow beyond issues that leave us feeling "less than" or "incapable of growth." I like to work with people with an integrative approach focusing on self-healing through empowered choices and balance. Working towards: "Taking back your power to create your ideal life."

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.
