This has given me extensive experience in the treatment of eating disorders, trauma, mood disorders, substance abuse, as well as related issues of self esteem and body image.
I feel that therapy can be a wonderful resource to help you cope with and heal from life's challenges. Understanding how your life experiences have led to relationship and behavior patterns can help you make lasting changes and lead a more fulfilling life. I work hard to create a safe environment and partnership with clients to facilitate personal growth. I utilize an integrative therapy model to create a personalized approach for each individual I work with. I also provide consultation.

You struggle with how you see and feel about yourself. You never feel like you are “enough.” You are swimming in self-doubt and all you see are your imperfections. The inner critic that lives in your head is always on overdrive. Sometimes you just wish it would let up for a bit so you could have a moment of peace. It hurts to treat yourself this way, but you don't know another way to be. What would it be like if you weren't constantly berating yourself? In therapy, we will help you look at how you came to see yourself the way you do so you can contend with that voice of self-doubt differently.

Each of us has the right to a safe, warm, environment in which we feel respected, listened to and truly understood. As a therapist, I work hard to provide that environment and to be that person who deeply gets you. When we suffer, whether as children or adults, we often are left with a sense of loss of self. A key purpose of therapy, in my view, is to find, reclaim, or strengthen your authentic self and to let that authentic self take the lead in your life.

I currently focus my clinical work with preteens, teens, and adults who are struggling with anxiety, stress, depression, self-esteem and life transitions. And, as a biracial (Asian/White) therapist, I am knowledgeable about unique identity issues for biracial/multiracial individuals and am passionate about supporting others in this area. I believe therapy should be a collaborative process, and view clients as the experts of their own lives.

Despite your best efforts to convince yourself that you have it all together, you’re struggling with relationships, you're tired, and you're left wondering, "is it me?" Feeling unsure of how to navigate it all, you’ve pushed down the pain and traumatic memories. Sometimes, you do feel fine; but the feeling is fleeting. Truthfully, the things you've been doing to cope just aren't helping as much as you'd hoped. We both know that simply "focusing on yourself" overlooks the complexity of navigating through unwritten relationship rules, cultural expectations, and your values. Together, let's find new ways to navigate the challenges.

I believe therapy is a tool that can be used by everyone to help make life more manageable. When we feel our life is out of control or we're unable to manage it, we may go to extremes to try and regain control. Most of the methods we turn to in these situations may seem to help in the beginning, but more often than not they end up hurting us in the long run. I believe this is where therapy can help to find healthy and productive ways to gain a sense of confidence and capability to handle struggles.

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.
