Women's Issues

The term “women’s issues” is broad and can refer to anything that might affect a women’s mental health. Some issues, such as post-partum depression, are specific to women, while others, such as anxiety, can affect both men and women. However, women may experience the issue differently. There are many types of issues that women can face today, and some of the most prominent concerns include sexual assault, woman-specific health problems, body image problems, self-esteem, sexuality, discrimination, sexism or stereotyping. Therapists specializing in women’s issues will provide a safe and supportive environment to help to empower their clients so they can find balance, improve their quality of life, and experience relief from emotional suffering.

Have you noticed that one day you stopped, looked around, and wondered how you got to be half way through your life and you are not even living YOUR life or the life you envisioned? You spend so much time managing other people’s schedules and prioritizing everyone over yourself. In addition to parenting your children, you’re also parenting your parents. Now life feels stagnant. You’re asking if this is really how things are now?

— Victoria Hicks, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Atlanta, GA

There are the crazy, migraine-inducing societal expectations of mothers in American society, and then there are the dreams you have for your own life. Where you want to put your energy. What goals you have. How you want to present to the world. If you need help untangling them from the barrage of Instagram accounts, parenting books, and family advice that clutter your brain, I can work with you to bring forward what truly matters to you and how you can prioritize it. 

— Nora Bice, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Burbank, CA

We as women have a unique experience of this world. There are many explicit and implicit messages we receive from society. From the way we present ourselves, to expectations surrounding careers and motherhood, we receive many conflicting messages that can have negative affects on the way we perceive ourselves. I can help you untangle your beliefs about yourself from the expectations others may have of you.

I provide person-centered, compassionate, and solution-focused approaches to assist women working through personal, familial, or relational difficulties.

— Amy Burley, Licensed Professional Counselor in Plano, TX

I specialize in women's issues. This includes trauma of all kinds, which women and marginalized folks experience disproportionately. It also includes issues related to women's health, such as pregnancy, perinatal/postpartum mental health challenges, miscarriage and pregnancy loss, and abortion. Additionally, women face intense pressure to be perfect in all ways and have to work harder to be taken as seriously as men. We've come along way, but sexism is still very much alive.

In February 2022, I will be completing training in perinatal mental health and provide therapy to women, who are struggling with their mental health due to pregnancy or birth of a child.

— Melissa Wetherington, Licensed Professional Counselor in Cherry Hill, NJ

As women we often put ourselves last after everyone else's needs are met. This can lead to feelings of fatigue, burn out, frustration, resentment , lack of fulfillment and underachievement. Relationship dissatisfaction can lead to feelings of despair and depression. Confusion about sexual orientation can be isolating and scary. These are only a few of the issues women face. I can help you explore your own personal truth so you can connect to your authentic self and feel empowered.

— Joan Tibaldi, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Saint Augustine, FL

I provide an unconditionally supportive space for people to process all their reproductive choices, as well as feelings about the loss of body autonomy after recent court decisions. My commitment to intersectional feminism guides all my work with patients. Reproductive justice, body autonomy, and decolonization of psychotherapy demand focused and intentional effort. I pursue ongoing experiences and continuing education to support my growth in this area.

— Liz Fletcher, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Oklahoma City, OK

I have focused my work with women around the issues that impact them most. Deciding whether or not to start a family, struggling with pregnancy loss and infertility, balancing work and family, managing and coping with internal and external negative biases. My goal is to lift women up in all areas of their lives and help them become what they want to be.
