A majority of my experience has been working with children and teens, as well as young adults that need support in improving self esteem, making meaning in ones life, and learning how to improve and engage in authentic relationships.
I meet my clients where they are at, and begin by building on the relationship where we can focus on the parts that seem to be holding one back from living their most authentic life. Every one has their own unique journey, and I believe that in a strong therapeutic relationship, healing, growth, and transformation is possible. Therapy allows for one to gain insight and awareness around one's patterns of behavior. Let us meet together to see if we are a good fit.

Maybe you are needing support during this unknown and, for many people, scary time. Or, maybe you are needing a bigger change. Congratulations on taking your first step! It can be hard to select "the right therapist" from these giant lists. Sometimes it can be about chemistry and fit, and you just have to try with someone. I believe that you can find clarity and relief, and my own journey has taught me that healing and/or [some] relief is possible. I work with adults who are dealing with a variety of things such as depression or anxiety, relationship issues, low self esteem or shame, and/or feelings of "stuckness" or being lost.

It is often in the darkest corners of ourselves that we find the brightest hope. Love, joy and belonging start within us while pain and disconnection come from learning through adverse experiences to hide, deny, and reject who we are. By reconnecting with and learning to love our authentic selves, we can experience more inner peace and healthy relationships. Exploring the places inside of us we have long ignored can be scary, but it is not a journey we must embark on alone. Therapy has been a vital part of my healing. I hope to be able to share it with you.

I help people come home to themselves. Life's challenges can leave us questioning our intuition and values and impact our self-worth, relationships, and well-being. Perhaps this is due to a difficult upbringing, perhaps due to trauma and loss, or it may be due to external stressors such as marginalization and oppression. I help clients to find their voice, re-discover self-trust, uncover inner wisdom, and cultivate strength and balance. Together we will explore your experiences, nurture inner resources, and identify and resolve destructive patterns that impact your relationships.

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 Santa Barbara and therapists' support dealing with self esteem.
