Therapists Specializing in Self-Esteem in Florida

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.

Welcome. If you are reading this, something about your life likely does not feel right – either with a relationship, or with your experience of yourself, or with the direction you see yourself heading. If you are reading this, it hopefully also means that some part of you believes change is possible.

My approach to therapy is informed by your reasons for contacting me, my training as a psychologist, as well as by our working relationship.

In the first few sessions, we will go over what you would like to gain from therapy, and we will complete an intake assessment. I will also go over some of the parameters for therapy, including information about confidentiality, session frequency and duration, fees, insurance, and cancellations. At the end of these sessions, I will give you my impressions of what our work might entail, and we can discuss if my training and experience match your treatment needs. If we decide to start psychotherapy, we will discuss treatment goals and schedule our first therapy appointment.

Hi! I’m a person-centered, strength-based therapist who believes that every individual is an expert in his/her/their own life. I help people uncover and use their own strengths to overcome obstacles and grow into their best selves. I’m passionate about validating individuals’ unique experiences while empowering them to find meaning and purpose in all areas of their lives.

I think that therapy can be so much more than a one-sided conversation! I believe it’s essential for clients to feel comfortable, and I strive to offer a relaxed, safe environment in which you can fully express yourself. Please tell me if something isn’t working for you! I’m dedicated to being collaborative, real, and honest – allowing, and even encouraging, humor to build our relationship and work through issues.

If you’re interested in learning more about me and seeing if we would be a good fit, please feel free to reach out. I look forward to meeting you!

I value compassion, honesty, creativity, spiritual respect, gratitude, and inner nourishment in whatever forms they may take. I believe in possibility, channeling optimism, and fostering hope. I honor difference. We can always learn from the experiences of others. I believe that the natural world is a gift to us. We are guardians of nature, yet nature can help us; plants and animals can guide us to our inner truths. I believe that we are all artists and architects of our own identities and creativity is innate. I recognize that confronting one’s inner demons might be excruciatingly painful but can also be profoundly healing. I view work as an integral part of a person’s values. I believe we each have our own stories and need to share them to be heard. I think that therapy is neither magic nor science, but believe therapy has the potential to be magical and transformative. I look forward to meeting you to see if I might be a good fit for helping you move forward, whatever that means to you.

The search for a therapist often begins when you hear yourself say things like: "My life is a mess.", "I want the pain to go way”, "No one understands me", etc. Whatever bought you to this point to seek help doesn't matter. What matters is that you want to feel better, and live your best life. As a therapist, I am here to listen and support you as you find the answers. I am not there to give them to you, or to judge you. My success in treating patients is founded in the idea that all therapeutic relationships are a partnership of patient and clinician working together to restore the body and mind to health.

Identifying a rapport early on is important in proceeding with, and succeeding in treatment. A good therapeutic relationship is key. I know my areas of expertise and want to be sure I can provide the best care to you. Therapy is a very personal experience, and it is important to me that both you and I feel we are a good match. To make everyone more comfortable, I require a fifteen-minute consultation before booking an appointment.

In my own life I have learned that while asking for help is often hard, it is necessary. I see myself as a giving professional, here to help others clarify and seek solutions and coping mechanisms for their pain and struggle. I have had 20+ years of experience such as addiction, codependence, anxiety, depression, parenting and relationship issues.

While I am happy to see teenagers and young adults I do so only if they are personally and not parentally motivated to be in therapy. I learn much from my clients and seek to be a friendly and supportive presence to my clients.

My specialties have developed over the years to codependence, addiction and the resulting issues that face people I recovery including maintaining sobriety and relationship issues dealing with addiction. I am a believer in appropriate medical intervention and the use of antidepressants as adjunct treatments for optimal mental health.

I often bring my co-therapists, a shih tzu and a maltese yorkie to my office with me, where I strive to offer a warm and friendly atmosphere for support and healing. I also offer Telehealth sessions online.

It has been in my heart to be a therapist ever since I was young. I truly find purpose in helping others and improving your quality of life. This is why I added to my practice with Yoga. I want to ensure that I have the tools to help you reach your goals.

If you are open and willing, you can make a change. The biggest reason I see people not moving forward with change is that facing trauma is extremely uncomfortable, and who can blame them. With me, I use Cognitive Processing Therapy. This means we don't go into detail about your trauma unless you want to. Our main goal is to figure out what is keeping you stuck, and help you get unstuck.

I think working as a team is the most important thing. I am not going to make you do anything you don't want to do. I may make suggestions you disagree with, and that's okay. This is your treatment and my goal is to give you the tools and challenge you to reach your goals. We are looking for small changes, as most change does not happen overnight. I have confidence that you can make that change.
