 therapist: Sarah Erwin, High Esteem Counselling,
In-Person in Vancouver, BC V6B
Online in Canada
I work with chronic self-doubters who are struggling to see, own, and actualize their potential. I work with people who are always trying to do their best, but never feel like they're doing well enough. I work with people whose struggle with an internal voice that tells them they're "stupid", "lazy", "careless", "irresponsible," "not doing enough," "not trying hard enough," and the list goes on. I work with people who feel like no matter how hard they try, they continue to spin in circles and feel stuck.

Treatment Approach

  • Cognitive/Cognitive-Behavioral
  • Emotionally Focused Therapy
  • Feminist
  • Integrative
  • Narrative
Approach Description: I've worked hard to create a practice that feels authentic, warm, and unpretentious. My clients say that I'm "easy to talk to," which is probably because I show up in a way that is real, human, and...well, myself. I prioritize building a trusting relationship with my clients where they can truly feel at ease, because this is important in order for our time together to be effective and helpful.

Sarah Erwin, High Esteem Counselling Practice Description
My clients are mostly people struggling with self-esteem, self-doubt, perfectionism, anxiety, adult ADHD, and career confidence. They are often some of the smartest humans I've ever met who haven't been given the support they need to discover their strengths and what they need to thrive in this world. I run a practice for ambitious out of box thinkers who have been chronically under supported and misunderstood. If this sounds like you-- trust me, you're not alone. I'm a queer identified, neurodivergent counsellor (late diagnosed with adult ADHD in my 20s), who has been through some of these struggles myself. I designed my practice based on what I would have needed 10 years ago, and I know many of you out there are in need of similar support. If there's one thing that I've learned in running my practice, it's that none of us are as along as we think.
