DON'T LET LOW SELF-ESTEEM HOLD YOU BACK
with Mariana Girala, LMFT
Do you struggle with negative self-talk?
Do you feel that you're not good enough, or less than other people?
Do you doubt your own capabilities?
When you have low self-esteem, you look at yourself with critical eyes. Your image of who you are is clouded by negative beliefs that get in the way for you to have a good love life, grow professionally, enjoy your body and have a fulfilling life.
HOW I CAN HELP YOU
In therapy, you will learn how to explore the underlying beliefs that are making you feel undeserving and work on changing them. This will allow you to grow your confidence and self-compassion to approach situations with a positive outlook, managing the feelings of fear and doubt that are holding you back.
SOME ISSUES I CAN HELP YOU WITH
Breakup and Divorce Recovery
Your relationship with yourself, is the first and most important relationship that sets a standard for everything else. When you work with a Relationship Specialist, you will see your unique situation as a whole, considering all aspects of your life.
EVIDENCE BASED INTERVENTIONS
Anyone can learn to have a great self-esteem. Evidence based therapies are backed by science and extensive research, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I help people challenge and restructure the beliefs that are limiting them.
Awareness of the mind-body connection is backed by researchers that scientifically prove the complex links between the mind and body, which you can use to relate to your thoughts in a different way, by self-compassion and acceptance. I am trained in Meditation for Everyday Living (Harvard Medical School, 2019) and I utilize guided imagery and mindfulness to help individuals who are managing difficult emotions.
My life experience gave me the sensitivity and understanding of cultural diversity. In my professional career I worked with clients from diverse backgrounds, families dealing with immigration issues and multicultural couples. I speak fluent English, Spanish and Portuguese.
I am strongly committed to providing warm, personalized care to clients who are motivated to change their lives. My priority is that every person who works with me, feels that they have a professional by their side who is available, responsive and caring.
