Self-Esteem

In today’s world of peer pressure and underweight models, low self-esteem is becoming an increasingly bigger problem in children and adolescents.

Self-esteem is defined as a collection of beliefs and feelings that we have about ourselves.  This affects what motivates us, our attitude, behavior, and how we adjust emotionally.  Therefore, children and teens with low self-esteem can have a poor self-image, trouble adjusting emotionally, and can have socialization or behavioral issues.

At Polaris, our trained therapists will work with your child to examine their beliefs about themselves, and help them to re-frame them in a healthier way.  We will also work with you and your partner to help you better understand the self-esteem issues that your child is facing, and how you can assist them in improving their self-esteem.
