Why is self-esteem so important?

Self-esteem, or self-worth,  is “the ability to value one’s self and to treat one’s self with dignity, love, and reality,” says family theorist Virginia Satir (1988).

Without high self-esteem, people value the thoughts, feelings, and needs of others more than their own, but this denies a person of their own thoughts, feelings, and needs.  People need to know what they think, feel, and need in order to get their yearnings satisfied.

Through therapy, we will explore your thoughts, feelings, and needs, and we will discover your yearnings.

We will work on making the changes in your life that help you satisfy your yearnings. We will find the self-esteem that already resides in you so that you believe you are deserving and worth it. You will treat yourself with dignity, love and reality.
