Using a mixture of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques & Positive Psychology techniques, I work with clients to process their past & present, to build self-confidence & self esteem, to develop positive coping skills, & to develop future goals.
As a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, I believe each individual deserves a safe place to process life transitions, frustrations, worries, fears, or sadness. As an empathetic and nonjudgmental clinician I know it can be challenging or frightening to enter into counseling and open up. I place emphasis on creating a safe place where children, adolescents, adults, and families can comfortably explore the nature of their issues.

You are uniquely made and your life has meaning ...we can at times lose sight of this however. Each of us has a history and life experiences which shape our thoughts, beliefs, feelings and behaviors. We can come to a point in our journey where life gets heavy, where circumstances press down on us, and the person we were created to be gets eclipsed by life’s challenges. Increasing awareness about the way in which our unique life experiences have shaped our thinking, emotions, and behaviors as well as developing new skills to manage life’s challenges are important pieces in rediscovering our meaning and moving forward.

When we deny our feelings, pushing them away (depressing them), we get depressed. When we shame our needs and criticize ourselves for being weak/needy, we strengthen the fear that causes us to hide who we really are. This increases anxiety. When we deny traumatic memories, we develop Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Numbing reality and denying real injustices will protect us from pain in the short run. Denying what is real, however, flings us into an inner conflict in which we resist the things that we need the most, and cling to the things that make us most dysfunctional.

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 Grayslake and therapists' support dealing with self esteem.

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