I emphasize a collaborative approach to therapy--I bring 24 years of clinical experience, as well as enthusiasm, hope, and a dose of humor, and ask only that you bring an openness to change. Together, we identify specific life goals and generate plans to achieve them. Ultimately, you will come to understand that you make perfect sense; you may just not have been able to use this self-awareness to make the most productive decisions. My strong suit is quickly identifying underlying problems and patterns, as well as personal strengths and resources, and from there we chart your personal path.

My areas of expertise include marital and pre- marital issues, trauma resolution, mood disorders, bereavement and self esteem issues.
Therapy opens a door to new awareness and growth as we give ourselves permission to understand our needs and feelings. It has been an honor for me to be a part of this process and to witness the courage, integrity and resiliency of the human spirit. Over the last several decades, I have worked with adolescents, adults, couples and families, helping them to identify the blind spots we sometimes have that block our inner truths. I have been privileged to guide this process by creating a safe space and facilitating the hard work of self exploration and self revelation that leads to improved self care.

Raise your hand if you describe yourself as an over-thinker. Perhaps you’ve felt paralyzed by indecision in your life- fearful about trusting yourself enough to make choices that worked for you. Maybe you’ve had difficulty managing stress in your daily life without fixating on every possible outcome that could go wrong. Perhaps you've had difficulty managing your racing thoughts. Maybe you have a hard time seeing the value you bring to your work and relationships. Your anxiety might feel like a weight around your leg that you drag with you into every social situation and you don't know how to keep it from pulling you down.

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 Columbia and therapists' support dealing with self esteem.

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