Are you tired of walking on eggshells in your relationship? Do you feel guilty when you say "yes" to your needs and "no" to others? Do you find yourself in the same type of unsatisfying and sometimes emotionally or verbally abusive relationship? Repeating the same self-defeating patterns leads to anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem. You may be your own worst enemy, but the good news is: we can't change anybody but ourselves. Together we'll explore your beliefs, feelings and behavior patterns that keep you stuck in resentment, unhappiness, and fear.

Are you often feeling overwhelmed, depressed, or anxious? Are you struggling with relationship issues, low self-esteem, trauma, grief, or stress? Have you realized you are relying on food to change how you're feeling? If so, food has become your crutch and it's no different than using alcohol, drugs, or video gaming to numb, distract, and avoid dealing with the real issue. And just like any other crutch, addiction or distraction, food will not solve the underlying problem. I am here to help you uncover the underlying issue, heal the hurt, restore balanced eating and create a sense of well-being.

Sometimes it can be difficult to regulate all of these feelings, which can affect relationships, parenting and self esteem. I provide a safe, nurturing therapeutic place to explore these issues, and help restore happiness to one's life.

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 Rosa and therapists' support dealing with self esteem.

If you're looking for help with self esteem in Santa Rosa or for a Santa Rosa self esteem therapist, these professionals provide therapy for self esteem. They include self esteem therapists in Santa Rosa, self esteem psychologists, self esteem psychotherapists and self esteem counselors in Santa Rosa.
