You’ve heard it…
“You can’t pour from an empty cup.”
“You need to put your oxygen mask on first.”
We want to remind women how important it is to put yourself first while recognizing how hard that can be. Identifying as a woman comes with many joys, and there is much to celebrate about the female experience.
However, the unique roles that women play throughout their lives also come with unique difficulties. Women often put the needs of others ahead of their own and ignore their own challenges until the burden becomes too heavy. This can leave women feeling unsupported, isolated, and drained.
You are not alone, and help is available.
We offer a safe and supportive space where you can share your challenges and get the support you deserve. Sessions are tailored to the needs and goals of our clients, and our counselors employ a variety of therapeutic approaches, including: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Solution-Focused Therapy, Mindfulness, and much more.
Our counselors provide tailored care for women in areas such as:
- Anxiety, depression, and mood disorders
- Life transitions and adjustment
- Stress and overwhelm
- Self-esteem / Personal growth
- Body image / Disordered eating
- Infertility / Miscarriage / Infant loss
- Perinatal mental health
- Sex and intimacy
- Trauma / PTSD
Contact us to find the right counselor to guide you to your best self and a brighter tomorrow.
For many women, the conception and birth of a child is a momentous, long-awaited, and life changing event. Even the emotional rollercoaster that comes with sleepless nights and rapidly changing hormones is mitigated by the excitement of, and love for, a new baby. But for the millions of women grappling with the challenge of infertility, the mere topic of babies and motherhood can be heartbreaking.
Leaders, sisters, caregivers, daughters, entrepreneurs, mothers, artists, therapists, and activists. Women can be anything they choose, and we’re all the better for it. So today, let’s take an active role in spreading awareness around gender bias and taking action to create a more equitable world for all women. Here are just a few ideas on how you can participate and celebrate this meaningful day.
Parents have unquestionably been hit hard by the pandemic. Between school closures and virtual learning, many parents have assumed the role of teacher on top of their usual household obligations and adjusting to working from home. And on top of that, parents are helping their children navigate their fear, anxiety, and depression around COVID and tumultuous societal events.
Mindfulness is an ancient practice that encourages us to be engaged with ourselves and the world around us without judgement. Many of us are stuck thinking about the past or worrying about the future that we don’t spend much time in the present moment at all. Getting started with a mindfulness practice doesn’t have to be complicated. Here are four brief exercises you can try at any time, in any place.
Busy lifestyles, fast paced jobs, long commutes, and a packed schedule often mean less time to do the things that are best for us, like taking time to process with a counselor. If this sounds familiar, early morning counseling may be for you! There are so many benefits to starting your day off with a therapy session. You start your day with a clear headspace and the ability to set a goal or intention to help you stay motivated.
The body is our vessel of life, our tool for engaging with the world around us, and our protector. For many of us, anxiety takes us out of our bodies and locks us in our thoughts about the past or the future. Observing our tendencies and understanding the physiological component of anxiety can be helpful in the effort of reducing anxiety symptoms.
