Is shame negatively affecting your life? Many people feel shame for all sorts of reasons, but shame is often a weapon used in bullying behaviors to make others feel defenseless, embarrassed, or confused. If you are experiencing these symptoms of shame, then it's a good idea to seek professional assistance from a licensed therapist, who can help you make sense of those feelings and stop them at the source.

Wherever you are located in California from Alameda to Yucaipa or even Montclair, or anywhere else nearby, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

  • Feeling small in relation to others.
  • Worrying about failing.
  • Worrying about what others may think about you.

This is not an exhaustive list. Licensed therapist Aaron Mason wrote this article about shame, imperfections, and the difference between guilt and shame.
