Building Self-Esteem
Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW, QCSW, DCSW
May 14th, 2013

I don??t believe that anyone can reach the peak of true self-esteem. We all view ourselves externally at least to some extent. The goal is to reduce externally based feelings about ourselves and to increase those intrinsically based. Some people will focus on building self-esteem so as to reduce or eliminate depressive or anxious feelings. Others can continually work toward an increasingly better sense of self. The great irony of self-esteem is …

Defining Self-Esteem
Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW, QCSW, DCSW
May 14th, 2013

I have, in the past, defined true self-esteem as a positive feeling about oneself based on intrinsic attributes, similar to the way that we feel about others for whom we have esteem. What are the benefits of having true self-esteem, and what are the consequences of not having a positive sense of self?             While there are many mental health issues that can be strongly impacted by low …

Why is my anxiety resurfacing?
Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW, QCSW, DCSW
September 19th, 2016

Dear Therapist This past summer, I had an anxiety attack. It came as a surprise, because while last year I was depressed, at the beginning of the summer I made it my business to get out of the rut. Since then, I’ve been very busy going to classes and running a small business that allows me to express myself. I’ve been in therapy for about a year now and I really feel like I’m on the road to recovery …

How much mental health control should a school have?
Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW, QCSW, DCSW
September 29th, 2016

Dear Therapist I have a teenage son who I noticed was acting out of sorts. I attributed it to be a “stage” and did not make anything of it. A few weeks ago, I got a call from my son’s menahel telling me that my son was involved in some things that required help from an outside source. They would provide the “professional” and make sure my son was taken care of with the best care. I felt that cooperating with the yesh …

Overbearing Mother-In-Law
Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW, QCSW, DCSW
November 9th, 2016

Dear Therapist My wife and I are married for five years. My wife is the youngest in her family and often her mother gives her opinions or makes requests that she feels that she can't decline. She is also very often the person who has to take care of family events. She would like to stand up for herself and be able to decline, how she can do that in a way that won’t offend.
I also feel that, while I respect my mother in law, she someti …

Diagnosing a Six Year Old
Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW, QCSW, DCSW
November 9th, 2016

Dear Therapist My daughter is 6 1/2. Last year the school brought to our attention that she is displaying possible signs of ADD and they recommended an evaluation. Our pediatrician suggested that since preferred reputable specialists don’t take my insurance, and it’s a very costly evaluation, and being that my daughter is still very young, we can wait until after first grade when we’ll have more information on which to evaluate …

I would like some guidance on how to change bad habits that have become ingrained in my personality. While I’m aware that they can be unhealthy, some behaviors have become so much a part of me that I don’t know another way to behave.   Response The …

Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW, QCSW, DCSW
November 21st, 2016

November 18, 2016 Dear Therapist: What is the balance between getting what you want, sometimes being pushy.., and letting go? Example, I called doctor to get an appointment for one of my children, they were overbooked and only let him come for culture. The culture was negative and my son was complaining about his ears... so I was a little pushy, and the nurse did let me into a room. Now I am not sure that my son saw a good example... luckily, the …
