Therapists Specializing in Self-Esteem in Arizona

Self-esteem refers to how positively we feel about ourselves and our worth. We can all feel bad about ourselves or lack confidence at times, but people who struggle with low self-esteem feel like this regularly, or possibly even all the time. Although self-esteem is not itself a mental health condition, low levels of self-esteem are associated with some mental health challenges, such as depression and anxiety.

Many people who struggle with low self-esteem find it helpful to seek out a therapist. Most therapists are trained to help with low self-esteem, but their approaches may differ – the key is to find an approach that resonates with you. Some therapists help identify and challenge the unhelpful thoughts associated with low self-esteem and help clients examine and change the core beliefs underlying them. Other clinicians might focus on helping clients develop self-compassion and an attitude of non-judgment through mindfulness or other related therapies.

I believe having a safe place to process our life challenges creates an environment for change and growth. Safety is key when processing our everyday struggles and mental health issues.

Whatever the issue, having a safe place within counseling creates restoration. It creates a space were you can start loving and accepting yourself. This process starts with vulnerability. It takes courage to be vulnerable, and vulnerability leads to true change. Vulnerability breaks down the walls of shame, depression, grief, and negative self image leading to hope and healing.

When sitting with me in the counseling context you will find yourself sitting with someone that is calming and centered. My focus in therapy are your personal difficulties, not an easy fix. Therapy is meant to be a long lasting relationship with the therapist in order to provide the best mental health care possible.

This type of therapy is what results in long lasting change. I believe that the therapies that tend to be quick and controlled result in immediate change, but not lasting change. Lasting change takes time and energy. As your therapist I will give you many resources that push you towards lasting change. If you are ready for this journey to begin please contact me and set up your free 30 min.

It is important to me to meet you where you are in your process, whether you have been in therapy before or this is your first time. ​We will imagine together where you want to be at the end of this process and create clear goals and a path forward to get you there. Remember that "hope is the only thing stronger than fear," if you find yourself hopeful for a better tomorrow, don't hesitate to reach out for your free consult call so we can see if working together is what it best for you. I see adults age 18+, individuals and couples, and offer both virtual and in-person appointments to suit your preference. I am happy to offer early morning and evening appointments, Monday through Thursday, to accommodate your schedule to the best of my ability.

Good therapy works. However, there are often barriers between you and "good therapy." It's hard to find a therapist that is a fitting match, hard to look at your life with honesty, and hard to work on becoming a better person. I understand that this process of finding a therapist is oftentimes daunting, frustrating, and difficult. Whether we end up working together or not, I want to use this message to encourage you to take a deep breath, relax your shoulders, and keep at it. It typically works best for clients to schedule consultations with a couple different therapists, and try to get a sense for which pairing feels like a good fit. Trust your gut - you'll know it when you find it. All the while, I hope you remember one thing that I find to be abundantly clear: good therapy works!

If you are struggling with stress, anxiety, sadness, or motivation you are not alone. Many of us encounter roadblocks that interfere with our ability to live a life full of joy, meaning, purpose, and vitality. Sometimes our thoughts and emotions keep us stuck and cause us to feel we are merely surviving rather than thriving.

As a psychologist and coach, I am here to guide you along your journey to better health and wellness. Whether you are looking to make a major life change or a small adjustment I am here to help you move toward your vision for the future. Let's work together to identify what’s holding you back, overcome the roadblocks, and help you transform into your happiest and healthiest self.

As a human being, I understand wanting to live, not simply exist. Throughout my life I have learned that setting achievable goals and dreaming big can co-exist. I have used many of the same strategies I use in my professional work to achieve my own personal goals. If we are honest with ourselves about what we want, have the courage to work at it day after day, and embrace progress over perfection, we are capable of achieving so much more than we thought possible. Let me help you create a life that is overflowing with the experiences and purpose you’ve always wanted.

If you think we might be a good fit, contact me to schedule a free consultation today. I look forward to hearing from you!

Life can offer unexpected challenges. During trying periods, it is natural to need additional support and guidance. However, the decision to reach out for help can often be intimidating. My goal is to provide a welcoming environment where clients feel comfortable discussing sensitive and personal topics. My approach is both collaborative and goal-oriented. I welcome feedback from clients and utilize that feedback to tailor the treatment approach. I recognize that therapy is not one size fits all. In my practice, the treatment plan is individualized to the client and often evolves throughout the treatment process.

Typically clients are initially seen weekly. As the client begins to progress and meet treatment goals, the sessions are usually spaced out every other week or once a month. Of course, I am flexible in my timeline and realize that every client works at a different pace. My ultimate goal is to provide the client with the skills that they need to move forward with their lives. The treatment modalities utilized (CBT, ACT, etc.) are meant to be short-term treatments with long-term results.

If you have any questions about my practice or approach to treatment, please feel free to reach out to me.

Welcome! I know how daunting it can be to select a therapist and start this process in general, and I commend you for taking this important step for your child or yourself. I love working with older children, teens and adults who may be struggling with depression, anxiety, phobias, self-esteem issues or relationship difficulties. I strive to provide a warm and safe environment in which we can explore, process, and deeply understand your experience, identify treatment goals and learn new strategies for coping with difficulties. My ultimate goal is to promote personal growth and help you or your child internalize our work so that you have the tools to overcome future obstacles in addition to the current ones.

If it sounds like I may be a good fit for you or your family, I welcome you to request a free phone consultation so that we can learn more about each other and determine next steps.

You're not sure how to find relief. Maybe someone you love has died. Or maybe you are the survivor of a traumatic event. You may keep hitting the same roadblocks in life. You may have difficulty remembering things, completing tasks, getting out of bed, or going to work. You may feel guilty, angry, confused, sad, tired, or hurt. It may be hard to relate to others or find meaning in things you once enjoyed. Your body may ache. You may feel completely alone. You're not alone.

I am a bereaved sister, daughter, and girlfriend. I am a survivor of childhood trauma. My work is inspired by my own personal struggles and heartbreak.

I help people learn how to reduce unnecessary suffering. I provide a space for trauma to be seen and held. I support the broken hearted in living their grief fully and honestly. I help people learn how to integrate their losses. I help people learn how to function at their highest potential.

I work with individual adults and couples, and I view healing as a mind-body process. The process of experiencing life by experiencing the span of emotions can help to free us to be present in our lives in new ways. Our work together begins with a conversation. Let's talk.

It can be tough to start counseling; telling your story to someone new. It's a brave thing to seek help when life feels out of control, and you should feel proud of your choice to make a change.
I have special expertise in treating many women's issues - everything from emotional pain stemming from reproductive health challenges to dealing with infidelity in a relationship. As a woman, I understand how life can affect us differently. Problems like unplanned pregnancies, chronic illnesses, overwhelming anxiety, eating issues, postpartum mood issues - it's stuff like this that can really have an impact on how you feel.
It can be difficult to talk about the problems that are keeping us up at night, but counseling is one place where it’s ok to say anything, and to truly be heard and helped. In goal oriented psychotherapy, we will use the power of your narrative to show the way to a more connected life. You will experience a safe, empathic environment to share, learn and grow through our work together. Healing through making changes in your life isn’t always easy, but therapy can be a supportive place to start! You are the expert of you, and I want to help you use your intuition to be the best badass 'you' you can be. I look forward to embarking on this journey with you.
