SELF-ESTEEM

Self-esteem is an opinion we have of ourselves; a way of placing value on ourselves as people. Most of us have mixed opinions of ourselves, but if your overall opinion is that you are inadequate in some way, if you feel you have little worth and are not entitled to experiencing good things in life, your self-esteem is low. Having low self-esteem can damper the joys in life and have a negative impact on your relationships.

People with healthy self-esteem acknowledge their imperfections. In other words, they don't put too much emphasis on their faults and limitations. The good news is low self-esteem is not a life sentence. You can trade it in for a higher one.

If you or a loved one is interested in exploring treatment, please contact me I would be happy to speak with you about how I may be able to help.

SELF-CRITICISM

"Why would he be attracted to you?"


"You're just going to screw this up."


These are things you would probably never say to another person unless you're a real jerk. But how many of us have that inner critic that says these kinds of things all the time?

Breaking down our inner critic requires self compassion.


If that concept seems foreign to you or you feel uncomfortable with the idea of showing yourself compassion, then please get in touch with me. Let's work together to reframe and update your voice. I would be happy to see how I may be able to help.

 
 
ANXIETY

Anxiety can feel debilitating. If you suffer from anxiety, you know that awful feeling when your heart races, you start to sweat, and you feel like you just want to run. 

When you live with anxiety, any moment can become one that creates a slow-rising panic within you. Life is normal one second and the next, you feel your chest tighten and your heart begin to race. You may begin to hyper focus on future events and find yourself getting lost in "what-ifs."  Luckily, there are many powerful tools and techniques you can use to manage your anxiety effectively.

I can assist you in uncovering the underlying causes of your worries, help you look at situations in a new less frightening way, and help you develop strategies to tackle anxiety head on. If you would like to explore treatment options for your anxiety, please schedule a free phone consultation to learn more.
