Picture your mind as a house. Maybe the living room is in disarray, there is that basket of laundry that has been left unattended, and spoiled leftovers need to be discarded. Perhaps you have even stuffed past items in your closet for when company comes over knowing that if you open that door everything will come spilling out. Thinking about this situation, you may be overwhelmed with trying to feel comfortable in your space again. Where do you start? Let me help you declutter and reorganize your mind’s space, letting go of thoughts and behaviors that no longer serve you.

If you’re looking for a therapist that just nods and asks: “How do you feel about that?”, then you better keep on looking. I have an interactive no BS and no sugar-coating approach that all my clients state has been extremely refreshing and welcoming to them in the therapeutic process. Self-empowerment, radical acceptance, and authentic human connection will be the cornerstone of our work. I utilize strength based, solution focused, and neuroscientific theory to guide us in your journey. This is about you—your stories, successes, traumas, hopes, and infinite wisdom! Sometimes we’ll laugh. Often, we’ll cry. Onward to self discovery!

Working with clients who have a history of abuse (emotional/verbal, mental, physical, sexual), low-self esteem, anger management issues, and stress is a passion and priority of mine.
Life consists of many expected and unexpected challenges, loss, and trauma. These challenges have the potential to negatively or positively affect us mentally, emotionally, and physically. I believe there are times in our lives when we may need additional support and opportunities to learn strategies for coping with challenges such as trauma, loss, depression, illness and anxiety with attention to providing unbiased feedback and support. I believe that life’s greatest challenges are best met in a safe environment where you’re empowered to heal from the past and create the future you desire.

I believe therapy should take place in a safe, supportive, empowering, and confidential environment. Clients are active in the process, exploring areas including feelings, beliefs, and behaviors while working through personal history and identifying aspects of their lives they wish to change. Clients take a journey to better understanding of themselves and others. We will set personal goals, and work together toward desired change through reflection, processing and skill building. When working with children I work with the child individually and also invite parents/guardians into session to learn skills to utilize at home to support the child with change.

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 Kalamazoo and therapists' support dealing with self esteem.

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