Past trauma may be negatively impacting your self-esteem or familial, work, peer, and/or romantic relationships. In our efforts to please others we can sometimes we lose touch with ourselves, or don't feel entitled to having our own needs met. You might be struggling with issues around identity and self-worth, or want to change unhealthy and frustrating patterns of communication.
