Therapy for Women provides you with space where your voice and perspectives as a woman are prioritized throughout the process of therapy. Women’s mental health concerns are often impacted by unique relational, societal, cultural, political, environmental, and spiritual factors that impact their emotional and physical wellbeing. I recognize that your self-perception has been influenced by the experiences you’ve had in your body and relationships. As we work together we will explore the unique issues that are intertwined with your identity, beliefs, and worldview. I want to help you build trust in yourself so that you can feel comfortable navigating the world in a way that is authentic to you!
There is incredible power in beginning to understand your story from a place of compassion and strength. Therapy for women can help you rewrite old narratives about who you are so that you feel empowered to move forward.
Why Do Women Seek Therapy?
Women often navigate external pressures and unrealistic expectations that lead to frustration, burn-out, and indecision. It can be difficult to prioritize or recognize signs that your mental health is starting to impact your emotional and physical well-being. Signs that your mental health is negatively impacted may show up as overwhelm, procrastination, conflict, frustration, rigidity, indecision, unrealistic expectations, and exhaustion. Other signs may include changes in eating or sleeping patterns, isolation, difficulties caring for yourself, difficulty concentrating or relaxing, ruminating worries or fears, and negative thoughts or beliefs about yourself.
Therapy for Women May Help With The Following:
- You have a hard time relaxing, making decisions, or letting go of unrealistic expectations
- You feel like you’re doing everything right only to stay stuck in the same place
- You’re finding it difficult to create connections and relationships that are fulfilling
- Your relationships, sexuality, or self-confidence are impacted by the way you feel about your body
