Self-Esteem Therapy in Oakland, CA

Do you have a nagging feeling that you’re not good enough?  You’re not alone.  Most people have had that feeling at different points in their lives.

But sometimes that feeling won't go away and you're often feeling bad about yourself, struggling with self-doubt, and feeling anxious about making a mistake, not living up to expectations, or being rejected.


You've noticed that your insecurities are holding you back - preventing you from trying new things, meeting new people, and pursuing your goals and other opportunities.

You're dealing with self-esteem issues and it's getting in the way of how you want to live your life.

Some common signs of self-esteem issues include:

  • Being self-critical or beating yourself up even when you did a good job

  • Often feeling unsure about yourself

  • Difficulty making decisions

  • Every mistake you make seems worse than it actually is

  • High sensitivity to criticism and/or rejection

  • Difficulty accepting compliments or praise

  • Feeling worthless, unlovable, undeserving, like a failure, ashamed

  • Difficulty with saying no or standing up for yourself

  • Feeling guilty on a regular basis, apologizing excessively, or taking responsibility for things that aren't really your fault

It's time to give yourself a break.
