Successful Women Struggling With Low Self-Esteem

You’re a successful woman struggling with low self-esteem, self-doubt, and never feeling quite good enough. Life feels hard, and it’s all getting to be too much. You dealt with enough trauma as a kid, but somehow the feelings of unhappiness and low self-worth have followed you into your adult life.

You’re secretly ashamed, and scared people will find out that you’re faking it.

Making decisions and sticking to them is almost impossible. You don’t trust your intuition or inner wisdom, you’ve got too many ideas, and you can’t seem to settle into a clear path forward.

You’ve been rejected your whole life. You’ve gotten used to feeling like you don’t belong, never really having true friends and family who support you.

You need to change some things but can’t seem to get out of your own way.

Feeling Worthless and Full of Self-Doubt

You wonder if you created this mess. Even with therapy, things from the past still linger. You hate feeling like you’re not in control, but you also doubt any decision you make. You feel worthless and always take the blame when things go wrong. You’re a successful woman struggling with low self-esteem but you don’t understand why.

You’ve given up on your dreams. It’s safer this way.

It’s Unbearable

To keep existing like this feels unbearable. You wish you could just trust other people, feel safe, and be happy. Nothing stops the pain — no matter how busy you stay at work or how much you pretend that living like this is good enough.

I Can Help You Move Beyond Your Painful Past

I’m Melanie, and I help people with painful pasts feel safe, heard, and begin bringing light back into their lives. I was a successful woman who struggled with low self-esteem, Imposter Syndrome, and feeling like the Ugly Duckling for many years.

My compassionate, creative approach weaves together my ability to hear below the surface of the words along with all of my advanced degrees and years of specialized training and professional experience.

In balancing the science of therapy with the art of healing, I’ll create an innovative program unique to you that sets you on a path of success from the very first session. You’ll be learning from a highly trained, educated, and seasoned therapist … a therapist who really understands.

You’ll work hard, for sure. And you’ll also begin feeling lighter, more confident, and more in control of your life from the first session. My clients usually work with me once a week for an average of 8 to 12 months, which helps ensure your long-term success.

I promise that it won’t all be horrible and terrible! I love a good book, and bingeing the occasional streaming tv series, and having a good laugh together once in a while.

Please know that I welcome ongoing conversations about making therapy the best experience it can be for you. ‘Cause that’s why I’m here.
