Anxiety may look like fears surrounding the future, catastrophizing or feeling like you are falling behind. Learning to recognize cognitive distortions and unhelpful thought patterns can help create mindfulness about our thoughts. Cognitive behavioral therapy can help create reframes to decrease feelings of anxiety and increase coping skills.
Women's issues such as endometriosis, adenomyosis, hysterectomy, infertility, pregnancy loss, chronic pain and chronic illness can contribute to feelings of anxiety and depression. Fear surrounding the future, sadness or isolation can make the day feeling incredibly challenging. Psychodynamic processing, cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness techniques can help you navigate women's health issues in the future and thrive.
Chronic health issues are not just challenging physically-they take an emotional toll. Chronic pain and chronic illness can increase feelings of anxiety about the future and feelings of isolation. Therapeutic techniques included Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy can provide interventions to decrease overwhelming feelings of depression and anxiety as well as mindfulness skills to better manage pain flare ups.
Learn CBT techniques, grounding exercises, breath work and meditation to manage feelings of anxiety in a new way. I work with high achieving women who are juggling a work/life balance, responsibilities of motherhood, familial expectations and more. Anxiety can be so isolating and make you feel stuck. Fear of failure and lack of control can create this negative feedback loop and anxiety spiral. It's possible to break this cycle, reframe your thoughts and thrive.
Cognitive behavior therapy is an evidence based therapy that is very helpful navigating perinatal anxiety and postpartum depression. Individual therapy or therapy groups are offered to help provide new tools, support and a space to process your major life transition and change of identity into motherhood.
