Most of us feel bad about ourselves at some point in our lives. But when there is a pervasive and global sense that we are not okay or not good enough, that is something we want to get some help with. Whether you struggle with perfectionism, body image issues, a fear of being "stupid", a harsh inner critic or a tendency to spiral out into self-blame whenever something goes awry, therapy can help you find self-compassion and self-acceptance. We work with negative thought patterns as well as the emotional roots of the dysfunctional beliefs to help you release your inner shame and blame. The most important part of working in these areas is learning to tolerate being seen for who and how you are. This is something that we practice regularly during therapy.
