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.

I work with woman & teen girls in a variety of issues. Such as Anxiety, Depression, Stress, Self-esteem issues, Parenting, Teen dating abuse, Body Image issues, and Intergenerational truama. I enjoy working with woman & teenage girls. It's becoming increasingly difficult for woman & teens to feel like they fit in, to not feel marginalized, isolated, or rejected from their peers and society. I encourage and teach woman/teens to accept themselves, stay true to who they are.

Women are resilient as hell. I have worked with girls and women who have experienced big "T" and little "t" traumas and have watched them continue to be loving, powerful, and successful against all odds. I have worked extensively with women who struggle with their eating and body image and self-esteem, women who have difficult relationships with their mothers, and women who have experienced and survived rape, sexual assault, and intimate partner violence.

— Dr. Ali Dubin, Counselor in North Hollywood, CA

There are many things that women experience differently then men and having someone who understands and can offer support can be life changing. Between myself and the other women in my practice, we have experience with divorce, lgbtq+, fertility, postpartum, and much more. I believe both individual work where you can focus solely on yourself as well as group therapy where you connect with others in a new way and heal in community can be extremely helpful. We'll help you find your path.

— Emery Mikel, Therapist in New York, NY

Being a woman means that you face a unique set of challenges. Although opportunities for women in the workforce are greater than ever before, they are still fraught with challenges when it comes to being respected for our work and being afforded the same opportunities for advancement as men. In addition, women typically assume primary responsibility for children and elderly parents. A focus of my work is on helping women navigate this treacherous and often confusing landscape.

— Ketki Chavan, Associate Marriage & Family Therapist in San Francisco, CA

My approach is built on a foundation of feminist, anti-oppression values. I believe therapy is ineffective if the greater social context a person lives in is not examined critically; most of the time, doing so is empowering for all genders.

— Rebecca Rondeau, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Merrimack, NH

The impacts of our culture and society on our experiences as women are always at the forefront of my mind when interacting with each person that sits across from me during therapy sessions. I look for ways to empower and affirm everyone in my practice to push back against these pressures to have a strong identity or become advocates and allies for the women in their lives.
