The truth is that you've been struggling with dating, and you're still single. As an intelligent, ambitious and creative woman in her twenties, you have so much to offer a relationship, and you'd make a great, thoughtful partner. But strangely, you keep getting ghosted or, a few months in, rejected. It's super disappointing. You have a sense that you're drawn to unavailable men, but there's something kind of exciting about them. And sometimes the available "healthy" guys honestly just bore you. So you keep finding yourself obsessing over men who take forever to text you back or plan the next dinner, and your self-esteem plummets.

Do you feel alone? Even when you’re in a room full of people? Don’t know why, but you can’t shake the feeling? Are you adjusting to a new part of your life? Having feelings of hopelessness, low self esteem, or depression? Feel like you need a drink or a few every so often? It’s totally normal and I want to work with you to create a plan for a better head space. I’m so proud of you for taking the first step and looking for someone to talk to. It may sound paradoxical, but strength comes from vulnerability. So thank you for being strong and looking to be a better version of you.

I am trained in using CBT, EMDR, and other evidence-based approaches to help people make lasting changes to their self-image that lead to real changes in their lives. My approach is hands on, goal-oriented, strengths based, and gender/identity affirming. I help clients challenge unrealistic patterns of thinking, deconstruct who they are from who they have learned to be, learn how to feel safe and regulated in their body, identify options for difficult life situations that align with their values, and learn the skills to meet their needs e.g. assertiveness, boundary setting, communication, mindfulness, relaxation and grounding.

Do you want to change how you feel, your habits, or how you interact with others?  You deserve a therapist who will listen with empathy and offer insight without judgment, someone who will help you figure out what is holding you back and how to overcome it. This may require examining your perceptions, your beliefs, your interactions, and of course your history. Evidence-based techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy may also be helpful.

The complexities of human nature is something that many of us grapple with. Therapy, although seemingly scary, intimidating and overwhelming at first, can lead to change, growth and a high degree of satisfaction when an individual is willing to look at themselves in a new light. I believe in treatment that is collaborative which encompasses a conversational dynamic. I provide individual, family and couples sessions for various issues, some of which include; anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, communication problems, life transitions, issues with interpersonal relationships, work stress and other stress related issues.

The clients I see are often looking to develop a deeper understanding of themselves and their behaviors as they navigate the complexities of life. The main way I work is by combining psychodynamic talk therapy with interventions from mindfulness principles, CBT, and somatic psychotherapy. This means we can both explore your past and present to make sense of the patterns in your life and also promote nervous system regulation. Sessions can flexibly move between exploratory, experiential, and solution-focused depending on your needs.

I have always been passionate about supporting trauma survivors, which led me to focus the beginning of my career on crisis intervention and counseling survivors of domestic violence. My work is exploratory and skill-focused, using solution-focused, emotion-focused, psychodynamic, dialectical-behavioral, and cognitive-behavioral therapeutic principles. I apply these techniques to help clients whose goals include: building self-esteem, healthy relationships, coping with anxiety, depression, & PTSD, becoming more attuned to their emotions, and navigating life transitions.

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.
