Throughout our lives, we can all benefit from some outside help to guide us back on track. As a mental health counselor I understand the value of proper self-care, which includes taking care of our emotional and mental needs. Whether I am working with people experiencing anxiety, stress, behavioral issues, self esteem issues, relationship issues, or those with substance use or addiction- my goal is to get to know you and all the important aspects of your life that make you unique. Once we determine the focus of counseling, it will be a collaborative process to begin to motivate change and set goals that are important to you.

With all of the pressures around us it can be difficult to connect with others, make healthy decisions, and lead a meaningful and authentic life. You might be experiencing challenges that are difficult to process. You might be shutting people out and coping in ways that appear to be unhealthy. Perhaps your happiness and confidence have turned into anger, sadness, isolation & self-doubt. For many, starting therapy may bring on ambivalence, fear, or skepticism. However, therapy is a safe, nonjudgmental place where you can learn to unravel jumbled thoughts, understand your feelings, and learn new ways to improve your quality of 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 Park Ridge and therapists' support dealing with self esteem.

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