Self-Esteem


Self-esteem is the degree to which we feel confident, consider ourselves valuable, and respect ourselves, which greatly affects our well-being. We have therapists that are specifically trained in addressing all issues related to self-esteem.


Why Is It Important?

Self-esteem can play a significant role in your motivation and success throughout your life. Low self-esteem may hold you back from succeeding at school or work because you don't believe yourself to be capable of success. By contrast, having a healthy self-esteem can help you achieve because you navigate life with a positive, assertive attitude and believe you can accomplish your goals.
