I believe therapy is about safety and empowerment. Unique challenges emerge in every stage of life. My clients know they have a safe space to explore difficult issues. I seek to empower my clients as they discover new coping skills and work toward growth and healing. When possible, I find that deepening family bonds reinforces social interaction and helps navigate complex relational boundaries. Working collaboratively with families in the therapy process can lead to new bridges of understanding in the home.

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 Wheaton and therapists' support dealing with self esteem.

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