Self Esteem Counseling

If you are looking to work on your relationship to yourself, you may be interested in self esteem counseling.  Self-esteem refers to the feelings, beliefs and cognitions that we hold about ourselves, which are often tied to various types of experiences that we have had in life.  It can be connected to concepts such as self-worth, self-compassion and self-confidence.  Often times, low self-esteem can also be related to conditions such as anxiety, depression or trauma.  Through therapy for self esteem, I can help you to strengthen and nurture your relationship with yourself to find the most joy and fulfillment out of your life


Low Self Esteem can Look Like:

  • Persistent negative thoughts about yourself

  • Insecurity and reassurance-seeking

  • Feeling paralyzed making decisions or changes in your life

  • Perfectionism and people-pleasing

  • Self-sabotaging behaviors

  • Unhealthy dependence or reliance on significant others in your life

  • Overwhelming fear of failure

  • Social isolation

How I can Help:

  • Help you develop a self-care routine that builds your confidence and puts your needs first

  • Utilize concepts from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance Commitment Therapy to help you change your relationship to self-doubting thoughts, and learn to hold yourself to more realistic standards

  • Teach you to rethink the way you respond to high-pressure situations through mindfulness-based strategies including cultivating present-moment awareness, self-compassion and acceptance for your life as it is

  • Assist you in recognizing what types of relationships are and are not serving you in your life, and empower you to set healthy boundaries that benefit you

  • Help you to dig deeper and draw connections between your past experiences and the fears and expectations that drive you in the present
