Self Esteem

business7Self esteem is how a person feels about themselves. Most of the time we can be our own worst critics. Not feeling good about how you look or your personality can lead to anxiety when you are in a group. You may be shy and reserved even though you want to talk to other people. Having self esteem doesn’t mean you are always confident or that you think you are better than others. It just means you have accepted who you are and you are willing to live with it.

Having self esteem doesn’t just happen, it is a process. Many people go through an awkward stage during adolescence. It can be hard to like yourself when you are always comparing yourself to your peers. It can be difficult to be an individual when to be popular you have to be like everyone else. Yet life isn’t always like high school and that will pass. Yet at the time this is a very important time in a child’s life. Parents need to remember what that was like so they can offer support.

Parents need to realize how important self esteem is. Teaching children from an early age to find good qualities in themselves is important. It will allow them to be happier and healthier individuals. A poor self esteem can affect a person in many ways. They may decide to drop out of school or have a hard time keeping a job. They may withdraw from other people and turn to vices such as drugs or alcohol to feel comfortable around others.

There has been a great deal of information in recent years to link poor self esteem to those with depression. Counseling is often a very effective tool in order to help with this. Changing behaviors and seeing yourself as others do is the first step of developing your self esteem. Relationships can be detrimental at times to a person’s self esteem as well.

For example they may have a partner that calls them names and tells them they are stupid. They may get the impression from them that no one else will ever want them. Over a period of time they come to believe this. The self esteem a person has is very important to their overall happiness and mental stability.

  • You have lots of activities and interests you enjoy but you don’t always enjoy them often enough
  • You would like more time for self-care, activities and fun in your life

I’m not a great fit for you as a counselor, coach and teacher if:

  • You are 13 years or younger

You will find that as a coach, counselor and teacher, I am experienced, skilled, inspiring, motivating, intuitive, and  supportive. We will have transformational conversations that will help you identify values and opportunities, drill down to what is most important, set goals, and solve problems.   I work with individuals, couples, families and groups.  Since I have 25 years of experience and I’m trained as a life coach and licensed counselor and in both traditional and holistic modalities, I blend the hundreds of tools and techniques I know to help you to make effective and long lasting changes in your life.  I may

Coaching and Counseling Information and Packages

If you aren’t sure or have questions, you may email me or may schedule a free 15 minute phone or office  consult so I may answer your questions, you can let me know what you’re looking for and what you’re issues are and we can determine if it’s a good fit.  Sessions are typically 45 minutes long yet you may schedule a double session (2 sessions) for 1 1/2 hours as well.  Most of my clients schedule weekly sessions until they reach their goals over several months.

I offer many packages depending on your needs and goals. You may purchase an individual coaching session, 1 month (4 sessions), 2 months (8 sessions) or 3 months (12 session) packages. You may purchase a package but may use for double sessions or space the sessions  out if you can’t make it every week.  Many clients initially purchase 3 month packages because they have multiple areas to work on, they plan to attend for several months anyway,  it’s more affordable to buy a larger package, and that decision creates the investment of time, money and commitment to get results. I may also be in your insurance or eap network, you may be able to receive out of network insurance reimbursement and/or utilize your flexible spending plan so check with your plan for details.

I look forward to getting to know you and helping you reach all the joy, success, connection and fulfillment that is possible for you!
