Self-Esteem is a key element of psychology and plays a major role in dictating how we perceive ourselves as well as others. In psychology self-esteem is a measurement of a person’s evaluation or appraisal of his or her own worth, but when examined further it goes beyond this. It is one of the major building blocks in a person’s personality. It helps define how we think of ourselves and in turn how we treat and think of the people around us.

Self-evaluation has a direct and indirect influence on everyone around you. Our relationships with ourselves as well as others changes based on how we perceive ourselves. A damaged or poor self-esteem can be detrimental and can have negative ramifications on our daily lives. Our emotions from each end of the spectrum, whether it is happiness or despair are all tied together with self-esteem.

Low self-esteem is a pandemic that largely affects children and teens and is becoming increasingly rampant as years go by. Developing children must be encouraged and nurtured to protect their self-esteem. Fortunately, low self-esteem is treatable and can be helped by qualified psychotherapists.  No one is more qualified to handle low self-esteem among people of any age than the educated staff at Wolff Psychotherapy. At Wolff Psychotherapy we offer top level treatment combining experience and knowledge to provide the best psychotherapy and counseling to children, adolescents, adults, and families.

We are proud to offer a comfortable place where teens and children can express themselves freely and get the help they need.

At Wolff Psychotherapy our training and experience cover a wide range of areas including depression, anxiety, difficulty with interpersonal relationships, self-esteem, trauma, and grief and loss.
