Therapists Specializing in Self-Esteem in Pennsylvania

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 wake to sleep, and take my waking slow/I learn by going where I have to go." These words from Theodore Roethke's beautiful poem "The Waking" describe my approach to life and to therapy. Each day is a new beginning, part of a longer journey, and an opportunity to grow into the person you're meant to be. I view therapy as a collaboration, and I genuinely appreciate the uniqueness and individuality of each of my clients. I will help you embrace health and wellness, develop self-knowledge, value your inherent worth, build advocacy and leadership skills, and constructively cope with the complex challenges of life.

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.

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!

Do you feel every task, big or small, is impossible? Do you feel lonely and alone? Does anxiety or depression affect you in ways that feel overwhelming? These feelings can affect your relationships, your sleep, your job or school performance, or all of the above. This often leads to one feeling unmotivated and sad, or angry and explosive.

I want to help you if you are feeling this way. It is important to learn about yourself, what is causing these feelings, and to know that there are solutions and supports in place. It is then, that one can begin to heal, return to being productive and happy, and living a better life. I am here to help you in this journey.

If you are struggling with stress, anxiety, sadness, or motivation you are not alone. Many of us encounter roadblocks that interfere with our ability to live a life full of joy, meaning, purpose, and vitality. Sometimes our thoughts and emotions keep us stuck and cause us to feel we are merely surviving rather than thriving.

As a psychologist and coach, I am here to guide you along your journey to better health and wellness. Whether you are looking to make a major life change or a small adjustment I am here to help you move toward your vision for the future. Let's work together to identify what’s holding you back, overcome the roadblocks, and help you transform into your happiest and healthiest self.

As a human being, I understand wanting to live, not simply exist. Throughout my life I have learned that setting achievable goals and dreaming big can co-exist. I have used many of the same strategies I use in my professional work to achieve my own personal goals. If we are honest with ourselves about what we want, have the courage to work at it day after day, and embrace progress over perfection, we are capable of achieving so much more than we thought possible. Let me help you create a life that is overflowing with the experiences and purpose you’ve always wanted.

If you think we might be a good fit, contact me to schedule a free consultation today. I look forward to hearing from you!

If you're struggling with a lack of fulfillment, pervasive feelings of anxiety, depression, sadness, guilt, or fear, you may be a good candidate for therapy. Reaching out for help can be daunting, especially if you've been conditioned not to admit difficulty or hardship (as most of us have). I want you to know that I don't take lightly your decision to reach out for help, and I always aim to do my best to truly listen, hear, and understand the struggles you are facing.

If you are interested in pursing therapy with me, we will schedule an initial appointment in which you can fill me in on the concerns or difficulties you are presently facing. Near the end of that appointment, if we agree that we are a good "fit", we will schedule a second appointment in which I will obtain a detailed history of your life; occasionally obtaining a thorough history can extend into a third session. Together these sessions constitute the 'consultation phase' of therapy. My goal is at the end of these sessions to obtain a thorough understanding of who you are, and present my thoughts on what your therapy might look like.

I value my profession and my role in society as a professional counselor, and consider it a privilege to work with clients in therapy. Please feel free to reach out with any questions, or if you'd like to schedule an initial appointment.

It may feel overwhelming to begin therapy! My priority is to provide you with an authentic and non-judgmental space where you can feel safe to process, explore, and heal. I want our time together to be a pause in your routine of taking care of others, having to maintain appearances, and worrying about what others think. I practice from a holistic standpoint and firmly believe in the mind-body-spirit connection, and want to empower you to better understand that connection within your own life. I understand that it’s important to find a therapist that fits you, so please reach out and we can schedule a free phone consultation.
