Self Care & Self Esteem
“Self-care is never a selfish act—it is simply good stewardship of the only gift I have, the gift I was put on earth to offer to others.”
Counseling for Self-Care
Are you always caring for others, putting them ahead of yourself? So many women feel obligated to be a caregiver, often putting that role as their first priority. The effort and attention we give to loved ones is admirable and a valuable part of our lives. Yet, often makes it difficult to shift from taking care of everyone else to truly prioritizing and caring for yourself.
We've all heard it before . . . you can't pour from an empty cup. Yet, we do. We do it every day. But you don't have to. There is a way to fill your cup and make well-balanced self care a part of your daily life. When you do this, not only do you feel better and function better, but those in your life depending on you will get to experience the best of you.

Counseling for Self Esteem
Are you struggling with negative self-talk or poor body image? Self-care and self-esteem often go hand in hand. If you struggle to see yourself in a positive light or find yourself worthy of the good things in life, chances are your self-care practices are lacking. When we don't prioritize and take care of ourselves, our self-image continues to decline. This creates a vicious cycle that can seem impossible to break free of.
Negative self-talk and prioritizing others over yourself if often learned behavior from years of trauma, depression, and being involved in unhealthy relationships. Low self-esteem has severe consequences on our lives, such as staying in a low-paying job that is below your true potential or feeling unable to leave an unhealthy relationship for fear that no one else will be interested in you.
