I work with individuals who may be struggling with depression or trauma related to self esteem and relationships.
You are the author and narrator of your story. I believe you are the expert of your life and able to activate true change. Take a moment to reflect on your reason for seeking therapy: Are you struggling with a tough life transition, struggling to adapt to recent changes that have left you feeling overwhelmed? Do you feel like you need help breaking down barriers in your life? Narratives that no longer serve you?

There are many stressors and situations in life that may cause disconnect from our selves and others. This may lead to feelings of irritability, sadness, stuck-ness, or resentment, as well as less fulfillment in relationships or at work. In my approach, I aim to reestablish or strengthen the connection one has with themself and others. I work to understand your perspective, build awareness and compassion, and increase resources, like coping and communication skills, that assist you in living an intentional and enjoyable life.

Psychodynamic therapy explores how thoughts and feelings that may be outside of our awareness can cause problems such as relationship difficulties, unmet potential, anxiety, depression, low self esteem and other challenges.
Lasting change is possible through a therapeutic relationship that is safe, collaborative, nonjudgmental, and engenders openness and trust. Our work together also values your uniqueness and specific goals. The client-therapist relationship is a chance to try new ways of thinking and feeling, being heard, understood and knowing yourself in a profound, new way.

When working with clients, I use a collaborative approach. With this in mind, I want to make sure the relational aspect as well as interpersonal aspects of a person are an important part of the process.

Too often we get caught up in worrying about things we cannot control, yet don't know where to start in making a change in the right direction. Perhaps you're noticing more conflict in your relationships? Maybe you know what you'd like to be different in your life, but feel stuck or paralyzed in taking the first step? Or possibly, there are things you experienced growing up and you just can't seem to 'let it go.' As your therapist, I will take the time to get to know and understand your experiences, areas of stuckness, and overwhelm, as we work together to create meaningful changes.

I work with individuals who primarily struggle with depression and anxiety symptoms, and self esteem/self worth challenges which manifest in a myriad of ways.
I understand that during our life journey, we can experience mental, emotional, and relational pain. Sometimes we know what is causing it but don’t necessarily know what to do about it. At other times we don’t actually know what is causing the pain and where it’s coming from, but we know we feel it. This is where therapy can be very helpful.

My style is to support you in connecting with and understanding your deepest agendas and to facilitate the expansion of your capacity to live authentically, with all the parts of yourself. Many people have an intuition of when it's time to make changes, but are uncertain about how to do this, or where to begin. I'll help you generate the right conditions for change by first working to thoroughly understand your inner landscape, and what it’s like to be you. I'll assist you in refining your own instruction manual, find a useful balance between self-acceptance and self-discipline, and live a life with more self-compassion.

I smile at the paradox that even though I'm a work in progress, with problems of my own, I can try to help others navigate the challenges they are facing. Each of us lives a unique and complex life, populated with our own ambitions, friends, routines, fears, and inherited craziness. Our lives create an epic story that continues invisibly around you with elaborate and meaningful experiences. At times we can feel stuck, unhappy, or even lost. Each time we consciously work with our pain, we are working towards a more nuanced understanding of ourselves - an understanding that is less binary and more inclusive of our humanity.

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.
