Daily routines and simple tasks can sometimes feel like a power struggle with children. You have tried everything to only experience temporary or no success. Life doesn't stop for tantrums, where giving up and giving in seems easier so you can get out the door. Parent-Child Interactive Therapy PCIT benefits families by acquiring skills to increase positive interactions and ability to regulate emotions when facing stressors and challenges. I enjoy helping parents regain confidence in themselves as daily routines become easier and your child builds trusting, healthy boundaries. PCIT treatment, generally, is best for kids ages 2-7yrs.

It's the perfect time to create the life and relationships you want! Therapy doesn't have to be an anxiety producing activity. Long-lasting change takes patience and time to accomplish. However, I understand that hard work is necessary to achieve the timely results clients appreciate, so I am direct in my approach. I love helping people enjoy their lives more fully and accomplish their goals by helping them decrease their depression and anxiety symptoms and increase their self-esteem. I also enjoy helping couples work through the problems that are keeping them from having thriving relationships.

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.
