Austin & Round Rock Girls Self-Esteem Group

Is your daughter struggling with low self-esteem?

Middle and high school can be a challenging time for teenagers. It is even more challenging when you have low self-esteem! Low self-esteem can lead to difficulties establishing relationships, trying new things, and persistent decreased mood. It is also associated with anxiety, depression, and eating disorders.

Targeting low self-esteem at this phase of life can help prepare teenage girls for a more confident and self-loving future!

  • Poor self-image
  • Holds self to high standards (but not others)
  • Preoccupation with perceived insecurities
  • Socially withdrawn
  • Low mood
  • General lack of confidence
  • Irritability/hostility
