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

— Amy Burley, Licensed Professional Counselor Associate in Plano, TX

Women often put themselves 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
 

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. I also work with patients to heal from trauma, including intergenerational trauma, that results from colonialism, white supremacy, and misogyny.

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

I recognize that women face societal pressures around physical appearance; life decisions such as career, family, etc.; and relationally with caretaking, people pleasing, and more. I focus on using self-compassion and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to guide women in learning how to set compassionate boundaries, communicate their needs clearly, and honor themselves through self-care.

As women we juggle so much! We strive to succeed in our careers, maintain our close relationships, and manage our responsibilities. Sometimes this blocks us from making self-care, fun, and relaxation a priority. When life then adds unexpected and challenging stressors on top of an already jam packed schedule, the stress can almost feel like too much to handle. There is no need to go through challenges alone! Call today so we can determine if AROSE eTherapy is right for you! Relief is available!
