The quality of our relationships greatly impacts our lives. Relationships have the ability to be excruciatingly traumatic or incredibly healing. I am trained in multiple modalities of relationship/couples issues including: Gottman Method, Discernment Counseling, and Relational-life counseling.
Self esteem is the ability to hold ourselves in high regard despite the fact that we are flawed. Self compassion and self acceptance are crucial practices to help improve our self esteem, but they must be practiced! Systems of oppression can also greatly impact one's self esteem and we will acknowledge and work through any impact those systems have had.
You actually know what you need to do - you’re a trained therapist after all. You guide people through this every day and ask them to trust the process and trust themselves. I've seen so many therapists fail to practice what they preach. Many of us are overworked and underpaid, feeling more than burnout and imposter syndrome, but moral injury. What if you could create a truly nourishing practice that promotes your own well being *while* being client centered? I can help!
