It is easy to develop a low view of yourself while immersed in a world with a myriad of social hierarchies. Our society privileges certain bodies, races, ethnicities, genders, sexualities, socioeconomic status, personality types, ability etc. People who don’t fit the societal norm and ideal are made to feel that they matter less, or don’t matter at all.
For me, one of the greatest joys in therapy is helping others cultivate greater self-confidence. I once heard the role of a therapist described as holding up a “kind mirror” to the client. I hope to help you to see yourself in a new way—a way marked by curiosity, compassion, and gentleness. And through this new light, you can become the truest, fullest version of yourself.
