Overcoming our Insecurities

The feeling of insecurity is usually a mix of uneasiness, fear, and nervousness that are triggered by multiple situations or thoughts that make us feel vulnerable or inferior to others. 

For example, the feeling of insecurity can attack us when we think our beauty, intelligence, or situation in life is way worst than our friend’s.

Insecurity can be normal in small doses, however, when it persists for a long period of time and it interrupts your daily activities and thoughts, it is time to seek help.

Getting rid of this excessive insecurity will help you achieve things that you surely have always wanted to do, without the burden of thinking that your knowledge, beauty, or skills are not enough.

In this episode, Dr. Carmen interviews Ali Psiuk, LMFT, who will tell us where the feeling of insecurity comes from, how can we overpower it, and when we should seek help.

Ali Psiuk LMFT is a licensed marriage and family therapist who supports individuals and partners to improve the quality of their relationships and their lives, she is also a coaching consultant and provides mental health evaluations for those seeking asylum. She is licensed by the state of California and has a master’s degree in counseling psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies and has concentrated in somatic psychology.
