I offer 4-6 session CBT programs to fight anxiety around body image, relationships, trauma, social situations, self-esteem, work/school issues, chronic health issues, chronic depression, and trauma (sexual and physical abuse, accidents, natural disasters, wars). Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that treats problems and boosts happiness by modifying dysfunctional emotions, behaviors, and thoughts. Unlike traditional talk therapy, which probes patterns and root causes of conflict, CBT focuses on solutions, encouraging patients to challenge distorted cognitions and change destructive patterns of behavior.

Throughout almost 30 years as a clinical psychologist, I've been impressed that the emotional suffering affecting us all, at times, has such universal causes. Insecurities and shame connected to childhood experiences over which we've had no control can take root, damaging self-esteem and emerging in symptoms of depression, anxiety and self-destructive behavior patterns. Even without overwhelming childhood stressors, feelings of inadequacy, and once self-protective, now limiting "chains" of feeling/thinking/reacting can interfere with realizing dreams, weathering losses and meeting new life challenges in the areas of love and work.

I recognize that entering in to therapy can be a vulnerable and challenging experience – to speak to a stranger about your thoughts, feelings, fears, and dreams. First and foremost, I strive to create a space that feels grounding, safe, and compassionate. From this space is where I believe individuals can tap in to their inner wisdom, challenge themselves, explore their depth of mind and achieve a greater sense of understanding and peace.

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 Brookline and therapists' support dealing with self esteem.

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