Women's Therapy

Welcome!   We’re so glad you found us.

You’re here because you are ready to grow and you want more from life, relationships, and career.  Perhaps you are struggling with keeping it all together, balancing all of your responsibilities and you feel the anxiety of all of the pressures creeping up on you.

If you are ready to take charge of your personal growth but don’t know how or even where to begin you may benefit from seeing a therapist who focuses on the specific issues facing women today.  Our counseling and therapy services for women are like having your very own “personal growth coach” who will work alongside you in a supportive way, but who will also give you honest feedback so that you can be equipped with the skills and tools needed to be more confident and effective in living your best life.

In women’s counseling, consideration for the unique challenges facing women today is integrated into the counseling approach. Women are often expected to be like superheroes who balance all of life demands and look like they don’t even break a sweat. The cultural pressure on women to be a loving parent, a great spouse or partner, to be beautiful and the ideal weight, and to have an amazing professional and fulfilling career is immense. So, often women internalize the messages that they have heard or seen involving expectations. This leads to many women feeling overwhelmed, ashamed, and uneasy using their voices to change things. 

Our therapists understand the pressures women face. We have a deep understanding of the ways that toxic shame can result in experiencing a lack of meaning, but how it can also result in more severe manifestations such as depression and anxiety. The answer to fighting shame, depression, and anxiety is vulnerably connecting with others and getting professional help from a trained therapist. 

Individual therapy with us focuses on creating a safe place while giving women the resources and support they need along with the courage to be vulnerable. This is a recipe for growth and change.

Overcome Perfectionism

In today’s fast-paced world, women face myriad challenges and expectations that can often leave them feeling unworthy or inadequate. The struggle to balance multiple roles, societal pressures, and self-doubt can take a toll on their self-esteem. However, it’s essential to recognize that every woman possesses unique qualities that make her exceptional. Therapy can be a transformative journey towards breaking free from the shackles of self-doubt, empowering women to embrace their worth and confidently show up in their own distinctive way.

1. Confronting Negative Self-Perceptions:
Many women harbor negative self-perceptions, driven by societal standards and personal experiences. These beliefs can lead to a constant sense of inadequacy and prevent them from recognizing their true value. Through therapy, women can delve into the root causes of these beliefs, challenge them, and ultimately reframe their self-image.

2. Embracing Authenticity:
Each woman possesses a unique set of strengths, talents, and perspectives that contribute to the rich tapestry of human diversity. Therapy can help women identify their authentic selves and nurture the courage to embrace their individuality unapologetically. By doing so, they can liberate themselves from the burden of comparison and live in alignment with their true essence.

3. Building Resilience:
Therapy equips women with invaluable tools to build emotional resilience. It empowers them to navigate life’s challenges with grace, face setbacks with determination, and turn adversity into opportunities for growth. Strengthening their resilience helps them feel more confident in their ability to face any situation that comes their way.

4. Cultivating Self-Compassion:
Self-criticism and perfectionism can be harsh taskmasters, perpetuating feelings of unworthiness. Therapy encourages women to cultivate self-compassion, understanding that they are human beings deserving of love and kindness—just as they are. By treating themselves with the same compassion they extend to others, they can break free from the chains of self-doubt.

5. Overcoming Past Traumas:
For some women, past traumas can play a significant role in shaping feelings of unworthiness. Therapy provides a safe space to process these experiences, heal emotional wounds, and learn coping strategies to move forward. By addressing and overcoming past traumas, women can unlock their full potential and reclaim their sense of worth.

6. Empowering Assertiveness:
Many women struggle with asserting themselves confidently due to societal expectations or past experiences. Therapy can help them find their voice, set healthy boundaries, and communicate their needs effectively. Empowering assertiveness enables them to navigate both personal and professional relationships with greater confidence and authenticity.

Every Woman Deserves to Feel Worthy, Confident, and Empowered.

Every woman deserves to feel worthy, confident, and empowered to embrace her unique self. Therapy offers a transformative journey of self-discovery, allowing women to confront their feelings of unworthiness, shed self-limiting beliefs, and build resilience.

Remember, you are worthy, and your voice matters – embrace your journey towards empowerment through therapy today.

Our Approach

At Tribe, we take a holistic approach to growth, meaning we focus on the whole person:  mind, body, and soul.  If you are struggling with a relationship issue, professional challenge, or just feeling uneasy with the way things are, counseling can help.

You may be asking, “Would I benefit from therapy?”  If you want to grow in the following areas the answer is yes:

Emotional Intelligence

Emotional Intelligence is the capacity to understand emotions and emotional needs both in self and others. Developing self-awareness, self-discipline, and empathy are all a part of Emotional Intelligence (EI). Counseling can help you to increase your EI so you will be better able to connect with those around you.   

Relationship / Marriage

Relationship/Marriage.  Many women struggle finding ways to connect with their husband or significant other.  “No matter how hard I try I just can’t reach him,” is a common sentiment for women.  Also, women can struggle with vulnerability and knowing how to create safety.  We can support you in understanding yours and your partners attachment style and how to create a loving and supportive form of communication.

Shame

Shame.  Shame is a universal human problem that impacts men and women alike. Learning how to deal with shame through the power of vulnerability, self-acceptance, and receiving love and acceptance from others is how shame is combatted.  Our individual therapy and our group therapy are both excellent ways to persevere over shame.

Fear

Fear.  Fear can stop you from living a free and fulfilling life.  Fear often manifests itself in the form of anxiety or worry.  Learning how to isolate negative and fearful thoughts, while also practicing disciplines such as contemplative prayer, meditation, mindfulness, and mind-body techniques with your therapist, will help you to move from fear to freedom.  The fear that results from a traumatic experience can also be processed through therapy.  We offer EMDR which has helped thousands or people overcome the pain of trauma.
