Therapists Specializing in Self-Esteem in Denver

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 have over 12 years experience working with trauma, anxiety, depression, and interpersonal relationships. I believe everyone already has the wisdom inside to heal but sometimes layers of trauma or pain can make it difficult to do so resulting often in uncomfortable symptoms such as anxiety and depression. I work with you on processing traumas that can block the feeling of safety, content and happiness inside. I am trained in EMDR (an evidence based trauma therapy tool) that is used to process and heal traumas so that the system can rest and no longer have to fight to protect against the pain and fear and emotions.
I am also a licensed addiction counselor and work with people to find the roots of their addictions and other ways to cope and find addiction often stems from unhealed traumas. I prefer working with people in recovery once they have achieved sobriety and are ready to work on the root causes of addiction. I work with both and adults and teens 14+.
I am here to help support you through this process of healing by creating a safe warm relationship so you feel comfortable in therapy and feel safe enough to heal. I use the combination of a holistic/mindfulness approach encompassing the mind/body/spirit and also an evidence based- scientific approach to healing in order to get the best results possible.

I specialize in navigating complex power struggles and inner conflicts. Great suffering may be present with paradoxical feelings and associated vulnerabilities and insecurities. This also means there's tremendous potential for vitality and self-actualization to emerge. True growth. Perhaps you feel this intuitively already? Creating a less stressful, healthier, and more satisfying plateau in life should be of interest to you. Clarifying confusion and getting to the root of their origins should also be part of your motivation here. However, meeting someone else's mind along the way, a savvy guide, can be quite useful at times.

My motto in therapy, and in life, is "whatever works!" What works for us in certain times of our lives no longer continues to works, and we need to shift gears. I'm casual and transparent with my clients. I believe that the relationship between client and therapist is the most critical part of therapy. If there isn't a connection, it won't work. I will always let you know if believe we aren't a good fit, or if I believe someone else would be better suited to helping you with your particular struggles.

I've had quite a unique life and believe that this is part of what enables me to relate to almost anyone. I am straightforward and honest - not something everyone wants or likes! I will work as hard as you will and be as committed to making changes as you are!

Oftentimes we subscribe to living life on someone else’s terms - whether we heed to the opinions of loved ones or conform to society’s ideals. This is especially true when we endure pain and trauma, which can disrupt our sense of self and make us second-guess our needs.

But I believe that you’re the expert in your own life. I want to create a space for you to feel safe, affirmed, and heard. By listening to you and asking questions that need to be asked, I can help us develop a sense of shared curiosity about who you are at this moment in time. I provide a space where we can feel, think, act, process, and problem-solve together in an authentic way. There are so many ways to live - let’s explore them together.

In my experience, we are living in unprecedented times of uncertainty. These kinds of situations can lead to stress and fear while at the same time, if we are able to stay open and flexible, together we may find an opportunity to experience ourselves in the world in new adaptive ways. In situations like these, it is helpful to have a designated time and place to talk with someone who will listen with an unbiased ear while reflecting back support and curiosity. This way of relating helps you develop insight into your individual predicament and see new possibilities for your life.

By taking the opportunity to uncover our own resilience and discover new directions, we emerge in ways we perhaps never thought possible. We may be surprised to find based on our struggles, that there are ways of thinking that no longer serve us and are perhaps best left behind and ways of being that we want to cultivate. I look forward to helping you uncover your inner resources, previously hidden, to help you navigate your life.

To live a life free from mental, emotional, and physical anguish is possible. To live an always-comfortable life is not. Ups and downs, periods of feeling low are part of the human experience.

There is full permission to be with feelings, thoughts and sensations. While many clients are facing serious challenges, therapy can be playful, and sessions can be filled with laughter and relief.

It is my joy, to guide, collaborate with and support my clients as they move into a more embodied and free way of living and inspiring to support couples in finding a path forward together.

I draw from my professional experience and knowledge base and integrate my personal experiences of being a true careerist.

⭑ Although I am based in Colorado, I work with clients in all 50 states.

It's a very positive step to start caring for yourself, but it's not easy. As a therapist, my first job is to make that a little easier by creating a welcoming, safe and supportive environment. My second aim is to listen to your priorities, which helps me to offer education and options for treatment. We're partners in learning about your development and current challenges, and I believe this leads to effective therapies.

As a psychiatrist, I can offer a look into how your body and brain affect your mental well-being, and this helps with accurate diagnosis and sometimes with medication choices. I always explain the specific benefits of medications and their potential side effects, giving you the tools to make good choices in this area.

I am also committed to providing talk therapy to many of my patients because I think it creates more profound and long-lasting improvements for them.

Thanks very much for reading about me and my practice. I currently offer both in-person and video sessions. You can contact me through the Zencare link, and I'm happy to reach out and answer questions. I wish you well in finding the right therapist.
