Are you burdened by worrisome thoughts, feelings or behaviors? Are you entangled in relationship patterns that hold you back and trouble you? I try to create a safe and collaborative space for patients to share and examine their most sensitive problems and think deeply with me about how they've come to be who they are, including the ways they view themselves and relate to others. My approach is compassionate and genuine, gently challenging, and sometimes humorous. Over the course of treatment, my patients find that change becomes possible and there is opportunity for new choices and new beginnings.

Have you had a great idea, a POP,  only to talk yourself out of it?  Started a project but abandoned it, telling yourself it was too overwhelming or just not doable?  Wanted to try something new or different and been discouraged by your own thoughts or the words of others?  We all have, haven’t we?  I certainly have.  So what is the driver behind our stopping, getting distracted, being “too busy” and talking ourselves out of actions and desires that will lead to greater fulfillment or happiness?   Fear!  Fear stops us from all things possible, from opening up and receiving the brilliance that this lifetime offers!

Psychotherapy focuses on symptom reduction and management and psychoanalysis targets the root of the symptom. Being able to integrate both of my credentials enables me to provide you with a comprehensive treatment that, along with providing a warm, encouraging and unbiased environment to promote self esteem and feelings of self worth, will lead you on the path to living a more serene, enriched and fulfilled life.

Many people find me because something they are doing has become larger than they want it to be and is no longer working. It could be technology use (my special interest), substance use, pornography, working, or gambling, among many other things. Often these behaviors show up when people are experiencing stress, interpersonal conflict, insomnia, sadness, anxiety, existential crises, self-doubt, self-criticism, or the pain of high self-expectations, and so our work focuses upon these topics as well. I work with teenagers and adults in individual therapy, including some joint family or couple sessions as needed to support loved ones.

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 Needham and therapists' support dealing with self esteem.

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