Individual and Relationship Counseling for Women
Can you remember who you were before the world told you who you should be?
Sometimes happiness is not a choice. We can’t always “change our thoughts” in order to feel better. Sure, we can tell ourselves positive affirmations, minimize negative self-talk, and quiet down our inner critic, but sometimes this is not enough. Sometimes we need a bit more.
We all experience periods of struggle- times where we feel like the pain will never subside, and moments where we believe that we just can’t catch a break. During these rough patches, it’s not always a matter of changing our outlook, but rather, it’s a matter of how we step-up to the challenge- how we deal with adversity- and how we advocate for ourselves during these trials and tribulations. It’s a matter of what we do when we are caught in the storm.
Do you reach out for support in times of distress or do you let the pain overtake you? Do you seek out change or just hope that things will get easier?
How you deal with your pain is completely up to you. You have the power to create lasting change- and you have the strength to overcome anything. And the good news is, you don’t have to do this alone.
Reaching out and asking for support is one of the best ways that you can advocate for yourself. Therapy can help you to LOVE yourself, experience relief, and embrace who you are.
Support is an essential part of the healing process.
Why Individual and relationship counseling for women?
Stating the obvious
Yes, men and women are different. This we know. We are built differently and we have varying healthcare needs. Childbirth, pregnancy, infertility, motherhood, menopause, and postpartum depression are a few things that many women encounter. I am trained to help women, like you, overcome these unique and complex challenges.
Stating the not so obvious
A study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggests that not only are women more likely to suffer from anxiety or depression, but they also experience mental distress at higher rates than men do in all age groups.
Whether you experience shame, stress, anxiety, or depression, I am trained to help you work through your pain. For the fire inside of you burns brighter than the fire around you- this I know.
Our Time Together
I want our work to be both fulfilling and rewarding. Together, we will create a safe place- a space that is free of judgment and criticism. We will work towards creating a new you.
During our time together, I will encourage you to embrace your emotions. ALL of them. Even the “bad” ones are there for a reason- a good reason. They are telling you that something is amiss in your life and that you have needs that are going unmet. Together, we will work towards embracing even the parts of you that you aren’t exactly fond of. We will explore them, understand them, and turn them into something useful and productive.
Because I am a woman, I get you. And because I am a trained professional, I will do my best to find out what it is that you need and how I can truly help you.
Grabbing the bull by the horns
I’m not asking you to do something too drastic, nor am I asking you to actually grab a bull by the horns. I am asking you to trust in a process- I’m asking you to mix-it-up and do something different. I can’t promise you that overcoming your struggles via therapy will be the easiest journey, but I can promise you that I will be by your side, every step of the way. Therapy is an investment in yourself and in your future.
And now I want to help you to find happiness.
