Self-Esteem – it’s a nebulous term that is often used, but most of us would have difficulty describing what it means and how it looks. Today, social media can make this a particularly difficult topic for both adults and teens. Some might associate the feelings you have with a strong online presence among friends and peers as self-esteem. These beliefs have little basis in actual self-esteem, which comes from within.
Continuously undermining your accomplishments and confidence by being excessively self-critical, especially when it manifests as comparisons to others are symptoms of low self-esteem. Psychotherapy is an effective treatment for low self-esteem and can assist people of all ages in correcting long-held negative patterns by improving cognitive behavior. Together we will work to restore your ability to accept, love, trust and be proud of yourself.
