Everyone wants to feel worthy, adequate, and important. Children can feel the effects of low self-esteem in their dysregulated emotions, negative thought patterns, and breakdowns in communication with others. Low self-esteem affects their relationships, their body image, and their overall sense of inclusion and significance. While low self-esteem can be related to other issues like anxiety and depression, it can also result in children engaging in unsafe behaviors in an attempt to feel better, whole, and worthy.

The therapists at Relate Family Therapy and Counseling help children develop the skills and build upon their own strengths and resiliency to combat the lies that low self-esteem tells them about their bodies, their abilities, and themselves. With support and a strong therapeutic connection, children can feel authentic, engaged, motivated, and work toward a future of independence and confidence.
