THERAPY FOR WOMEN

There isn’t just one way to be a woman, and as a result, all therapy is unique. The sessions that you will have with us will be tailored specifically to the needs of the exceptional individual asking for a listening ear. Between work, family, children, relationships, and the inconsistent ups and downs of life, life is dynamic and, at times, challenging. The goal of therapy is to bring to light the enjoyable times in life that don’t always seem present or attainable.

Society is still evolving from the strongly patriarchal system that placed a lot of emphasis on the ideal of the perfect woman and didn’t allow for female empowerment. Today, these expectations of women are perpetuated through social media making women feel anxious, and have standards for themselves that simply aren’t possible to reach. One goal for therapy for women is helping to develop skills such as dominance, self-empowerment, and self-compassion to be able to manifest your inner strength. This helps you find your voice, and build self-esteem, also aiding in your search for a job, asking for a raise, building body confidence, creating positive relationships, and being the best mother and role model for your children.

Some other issues that may be discussed in therapy for women are conditions such as life transitions, postpartum depression, infertility, motherhood, depression, and eating disorders. Life transitioning, in particular, can mean many meanings. Whether you are a young adult, middle-aged woman, or an older woman, moving into the next phase of life may feel daunting, or like life is moving too quickly. Whether it is the stage where you are getting married, having kids, or starting a new career path, or leaving a long-term career, having your kids leave home, or having the first stages of menopause, these transitions may feel sudden and so therapy could be a useful tool.

Women have so many responsibilities, so it’s important to take care of yourself, in order to be able to take care of your loved ones, and therapy is a major step in doing so.
