Therapists Specializing in Self-Esteem in New Jersey

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.

It’s important to me that you feel comfortable in sharing your self with me. If you are feeling shame or embarrassment about your behavior or some aspects of your self, you will not be judged by me. You are doing the best you can under the circumstances.

Together, we can figure out a way forward that helps ease the feelings of anxiety and depression that propelled you to find a therapist. In time, you will find resolution in other areas of your life including a greater tolerance of your own feelings and an increase in self-compassion.

My primary goal as a therapist is to help you to negotiate whatever difficult mindset or situation you are struggling with. This is a twofold process: gaining insight into your life circumstances, and developing the agency to improve them. My role is to hold up a mirror so that you can begin to develop a more accurate perception of who you are. We can all be blind to our weak spots - but there are always hidden strengths to be discovered too...

I work with individuals experiencing a range of psychological concerns, including trouble adjusting to life circumstances, mood disturbances (anxiety or depression), and/or struggles with addiction. I also work with couples experiencing relationship difficulties, such as frustrating communication patterns or an inability to effectively resolve conflict.

I am versed in cognitive, behavioral, and psychodynamic theory/practice, and am particularly drawn to techniques that emphasize the mind/body connection. With 20 years as a yoga practitioner/ teacher, I am a strong believer in the benefits of lifestyle change - exercise, nutrition and meditation - in improving psychological health.

Starting therapy can be difficult, but it can also be the first step towards a more fulfilling life. It is important to find a therapist with whom you feel comfortable, respected, and heard: a good fit between therapist and client is necessary for any meaningful progress to be made. I offer a free 10-15 minute consultation by phone or video so that we can see if we can work well together.

It's never easy to find time for yourself. You have a busy schedule, deadlines to meet, you have responsibilities and errands to run. Sometimes you can convince yourself that you don't even need help, although deep down you desire change.

Are you feeling more anxious then usual, struggling with depression, or maybe having difficulty managing a change in your life? I created my virtual practice to help you, the overachiever in need that struggles to schedule time for themselves. Teletherapy allows flexibility and accessibility making it easier for you to set aside one hour a week dedicated to your mental health. During that hour I will provide a safe and validating therapeutic environment and we will work together as a team to help you reach your desired goals.

In our world being increasingly on our phones, it is so important to find time to connect with another person in a warm, judgement free environment. I value the time patients take to care for themselves, including finding space to discuss themselves and their lives. Therapy is the step to feeling more content and creating change in our lives.

Every psychotherapy, whether it involves talking, medications or a combination of both, must begin with a clear sense of who an individual wants to be, or what defines that individual's core essence. Everything proceeds from this starting point in a process that is constantly reassessing the difference between that "ideal self" and where one is in the moment. This contrast assures that there will be constant movement forwards in the therapy. Of course one invariably seeks help at a moment of acute distress, but emerging from a place of discontent or suffering offers a unique opportunity at transformation and it is our goal to take full advantage of that opportunity.

By far the most powerful agency we possess is the ability to choose our life's path. Our thoughts and emotions can be fleeting and unreliable but they can also erode the confidence in our ability to make the choices that serve us well. A therapeutic process must restore the preeminence of your choices to allow you to craft the life that deep down, you always knew you were meant to lead.
