Have you lost much of the joy you once felt? Are you struggling in an abusive or toxic relationship? Have years of living with low self-worth resulted in a less-than-desirable life?
Women may experience certain environmental, psychological and biological challenges related to gender that have a significant impact on their mental health and well-being. If not addressed properly, these challenges can turn into burdens that often lead to anxiety, depression and a lost sense of self.
I am specially trained to address Perinatal/Postpartum Mood and Anxiety Disorders. 1 in 7 mothers experience depression or anxiety during pregnancy or postpartum and 1 in 10 fathers experience depression or anxiety after the birth of a child. Taking care of yourself so you can better take care of your baby and family may sometimes feel hard or selfish but I assure you, you’re important too.
Mental health issues experienced by women that may benefit from professional treatment include:
- Postpartum depression
- Postpartum psychosis
- Posttraumatic stress
- Mood-related challenges
- Low self-worth
- Life Transitions
Why Seek Therapy for Women’s Issues?
Women’s issues can take a serious toll on a woman’s emotional, physical, and mental health. The effects can be mild to extreme, and in many cases, women are not able to cope with their issues on their own.
By seeking therapy, a woman can get the help she needs in overcoming an issue she has been struggling with. Seeking therapy can be an empowering first step on the road back to YOU. And while each step you take may, at times, feel challenging, uncertain and scary, you will have someone right there with you listening and encouraging you to cross that finish line.
If you or someone you know would like to explore treatment options, please get in touch with me. I would be honored to walk with you on your journey.
