Therapists Specializing in Self-Esteem in North Carolina

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.

One thing my friends and family know about me is how incredibly passionate I am about what I do! I absolutely LOVE my job, and I thrive on watching my clients grow and evolve!

I know that seeking therapy can be scary...intimidating...annoying...you name it! I promise to do my best to make you feel comfortable (humor is encouraged!). Since my sessions are online, you may see my dogs stretching behind me or hear them snoring gently (or in my pug's case - not so gently). As an animal lover, I encourage your furry children to join session as well - what better way for you to feel supported and safe?!

I am forever honored that my clients trust me to be a part of their healing journey, and I hold that roll very close to my heart! I look forward to working with you and helping you learn to love yourself unconditionally!

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!

It is important to find a therapist who you most resonate with and feel supported, not judged, but challenged in a non-threatening way to cleanse away the dysfunction in your life. Asking for help is the first step to a better life.

My passion is to educate clients about the signs and dangers of Narcissistic Abuse. I am a survivor of Narcissistic Abuse and have a personal experience with attending therapy. I believe in the therapeutic process and currently live the benefits of attending therapy. I'd love the opportunity to serve each individual, couple, and family that I can.

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.

If you are struggling with life's inevitable challenges, whether it be due to past or recent trauma, anxiety, depression, or simple difficulty transitioning from one life event to the next, let's work together on a unique plan to embrace these struggles head on by learning new, healthy coping skills. We may have to address some of these past events, however, this can be done while learning new skills. What if we "accept" the inevitable, stop the "struggle" with the thoughts, and "commit" to living a life full of value?

I practice from the idea that we behave according to what we "think" about situations AND how the "fight" against these thoughts causes us suffering.

Look...society tells us in many ways that in order to be successful, we have to be able to "do it all at any cost!" However, the "at any cost" part usually includes poor self-care and issues in our intimate, professional, and social relationships, we find ourselves lost. Let’s work together to discover your ability to start LIVING your life!
