During this time of upheaval, including Covid, political conflict, and environmental challenges, many are feeling pessimistic and overwhelmed. Some are depressed and anxious. Such distress may be layered atop previous struggles with low self-esteem, relationship issues, past trauma, and a loud "inner critic". Perhaps you worry about climate disruption or feel despair about our planetary future. Maybe you imagine you're alone in that feeling, or wonder if there’s anything you can do to impact the problem. At times all the above concerns can lead to negative health behaviors in an effort to cope. Fortunately, solutions are available.

Racism, harassment, brutality, microaggressions affect our levels of self-esteem, anxiety and depression. You're feeling shame and embarrassment. You are reeling from the shock, anger and pain and find it difficult to talk to others. You are experiencing trauma, and reliving it in your mind and alone. Telling those who may not understand, often makes it worse. I help and support those who've been affected by inequality of all forms, especially stemming from racism. I provide a safe space where you're heard and validated. Receiving support helped me heal from these experiences, and is crucial. Virtual therapy for CA residents

I am experienced in working with people confronted by relationship challenges, low self esteem, anxiety, depression, family challenges and self harm.
Most of us lug around a suitcase full of our thoughts, feelings, family history and past experiences and have no idea what's in there. Our current responses to and experience of life come from the contents of that suitcase. Together in therapy we gently unpack it. We will see what is working for you, what needs more support and what has served it's purpose but no longer works. I work collaboratively and am curious about all the things that make you who you are. I am particularly interested in working with people who feel misunderstood or unimportant.

Self Esteem Therapists
Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum. Equally, to lack confidence or lacking confidence is common amongst teens: child self esteem issues can be helped with self esteem support groups in Palo Alto and therapists' support dealing with self esteem.

If you're looking for help with self esteem in Palo Alto or for a Palo Alto self esteem therapist, these professionals provide therapy for self esteem. They include self esteem therapists in Palo Alto, self esteem psychologists, self esteem psychotherapists and self esteem counselors in Palo Alto. They can help with counseling for self esteem in Palo Alto or self esteem counseling and treatment for self esteem.
