Therapy for Self-Esteem

When your actions are driven by beliefs of unworthiness or the fear of judgment,
your capacity for happiness can feel limited and out of your control.
If you are struggling with self-esteem, you may find yourself:
  • Speaking to yourself harshly
  • Tolerating mistreatment from others
  • Doubting your decisions and anticipating criticism or failure
  • Comparing yourself to others
  • Withdrawing from relationships
Improve Your Self-Esteem
You can reconnect with your inherent worthiness and release reliance on validation from others. I can help you explore what's at the root of your low self-esteem, treat yourself with kindness, and relate more neutrally (or even compassionately) to your inner critic. As you unlearn the beliefs holding you back, you can show up more authentically in the world, bond more deeply with others, and live a life more reflective of your values and strengths.
In therapy, you'll learn to:
  • Be mindful of your thought patterns
  • Shift your inner dialogue
  • Discover and build upon your strengths and interests
  • Practice self-compassion
  • Define your values and a fulfilling, purposeful life in your terms
  • Improve your self-care practices
  • Build self-trust
  • Work on boundary-setting
  • Move through fears of being seen, judged, or criticized
  • Learn to accept your mistakes and imperfections
If you'd like support with your self-esteem, please feel free to reach out to me.
