Therapists Specializing in Self-Esteem in Rhode Island

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.

There are natural points in our life in which we become aware that in order to move towards a fulfilling life, we must challenge the way we are currently living. In making the commitment to change, we must accept that change is not easy – while also acknowledging that it is absolutely within our reach and is the only thing worth fighting for.

My career and research are focused on the body, mind, and spirit connection. My concentration is in Holistic Mental Health Counseling, and I have expertise in Ayurvedic medicine, Yogic psychology, Hakomi, and herbal medicine. I bring these fields of study together to form a thorough understanding of how to find the way back to balance.

The clients who will benefit most from my services are those ready to commit to creating the life they have always wanted and are willing to make the changes to get it. If that speaks to you, know that my position is to be your support and guide through this process. My approach is rooted in being lovingly attentive and non-judgmental.

I know it can be difficult at times to talk about the problems that you face. So much of the time, we're expected to project an image of ourselves as successful, happy, funny, smart, or tough. But I would encourage you to give yourself permission to not have to face your worries alone. This is a place where you can talk openly and not feel judged. Together, we can work towards identifying and changing the things that in your life that are keeping you from feeling your best.

For men: It's no secret that traditionally, men are much less likely than women to seek mental health care. Sometimes, even the idea of asking for help can conflict with strongly ingrained social norms about needing to be tough. A the same time though, so many of the issues that men face can be quite impairing to our functioning and disruptive to the relationships with the people we love the most.

Finding a connection with a therapist can be tough. We will explore your needs and what you are seeking in treatment. If we both decide that we are a good match then we will begin. Should we feel that your needs may be better addressed by another therapist or approach I will help guide you to someone that may be a better fit, at any time before, during, or after treatment.

I invite clients into a supportive and interactive atmosphere where they can set the pace of therapy, share and explore different emotions, and experience the importance of truly feeling heard and understood.
Gradually, I help clients develop skills to better manage their upsets, fears, or relational challenges, both past and present. From a mindful perspective, I challenge clients to find and create a ‘half full' mindset, developing an ability to move beyond emotional reactivity and overwhelm.
Regardless of the specific challenges, clients learn to better see the opportunities they have within their circumstances rather than feeling victimized by them. Clients learn to speak and move into a new way of being - one with a renewed sense of possibility, a reduction of fear, and with greater energy, peace, and freedom.
