Shame

 

Shame is a central human experience.

 

Here’s what shame looks like:

 

Telling yourself, “I’m inferior. I’m defective. I’m a failure.”

 

Feeling rejected or alienated from others.

 

Believing that your “defects” are exposed, and that people are thinking negatively about you.

 

Covering yourself with masks that don’t fit who you really are.

 

Wishing you could be recognized, accepted and validated for who you really are.

 

Together we will get at the roots of your thoughts and feelings so that we can find ways to overcome them. On the other side of what you’re experiencing is self-acceptance and self-esteem.
