Therapists Specializing in Self-Esteem in New York

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 am an interactive psychotherapist with advanced experience in Couples Therapy, Cognitive Therapy and Modern Psychodynamic Therapy. I help individuals and couples suffering from symptoms of depression, anxiety or problems in their relationships. Often clients come to me feeling stuck or confused about relationships and careers that keep them from engaging more fully in life. I help them to understand the problems, remove the obstacles, and live a life more in tune with their true nature. Having grown up in a family of therapists and worked through many of my own similar issues, I know personally and professionally the vast rewards of good therapy.
I work eclectically on relieving symptoms of depression and anxiety while assisting my clients in clearly understanding their own way of thinking, feeling, and behaving. At times I will use a more cognitive approach and other times a more psychodynamic approach. The orientation depends upon the client's specific needs.
I offer a safe, warm, friendly environment where we can communicate openly with one another and work on the issues at hand; it is a healthy and informative process where clients find that not only the relationship with themselves improve, but also those with others.

I care deeply about my patients. After each session I reflect upon the patient's needs, including but not limited to care coordination with other health care providers. Your mental health is a direct reflection of your physical health and should be treated with the same reverence. This is why I apply my understanding of the interdisciplinary health care system to ensure all aspects of the patient's health are treated appropriately.

I am empathetic and a good listener, while also practical and a problem solver. My support and availability extends beyond the allotted session, and I go above and beyond to be there for my patients.

Whatever it is that you’re struggling with, I would encourage you to reach out. We can all use extra support, especially today during these unpredictable times. I would be happy to hear from you and see how I can help.

Good therapy guides you to a more secure relationship with yourself and with the world around you, so that you can reconnect with a sense of meaning and immediacy in your life. When we feel grounded in ourselves and connected to our actions and the wider world, there's no room for anxiety, depression or obsession. I bring experience, clinical knowledge, and warm authenticity to our work, which is exactly what growth requires. We grow when we feel safe and secure, and seen.

Psychotherapy is your time to talk. When we grow and change, we naturally want to reflect on that journey. When we struggle or have set-backs, having someone to listen to our stories can help us develop a new perspective. When we find a way to acknowledge and accept our emotional experience, we often discover a deeper sense of meaning and move forward. I have great respect for my clients and want to help you try to achieve a more satisfying and fulfilling life. Take this time to truly get to know yourself.

Feeling heard and understood is one of the best parts about going to therapy. As an artist, it is easy to feel misunderstood. Between the people that do not understand your career choices, and the people who do not understand depression and anxiety, it can sometimes feel like no one can ever "get" you at all. My goal is to help artists feel less alone, and to help them be the best versions of themselves possible. I’m a therapist and former performer who understands how difficult it can be to balance the life of an artist with your mental health. I also understand that being an artist is not just what you do, but who you are. Together, we can explore your unique therapeutic needs, to help you manage your mental health, excel creatively, and thrive in your relationships.
