Individual Therapy for Women Experiencing Depression and Anxiety

You're used to having it all together.  You're usually the "strong friend".  Showing up for others has become a part of your identity.  What they don't know is sometimes you would like a shoulder to lean on.  You want someone to hear you when you speak, to ask you how you're doing.  Sometimes it's lonely and it can be scary to admit vulnerability and that you go through things too.

Women entering into womanhood and motherhood have unique experiences that begin to shape who we are.  So much of our lives are shaped by our roles: daughter, sister, student, career woman, friend, girlfriend, wife, mother that we sometimes forget who we are individually.  Not to mention, the comparison that ensues as time is spent on social media looking at the women who seem to have it all together.  There's so much pressure to be "perfect" at everything, to seem like nothing bothers you, to do everything well and to have a smile on your face while you do it.  In the past, women have been expected to sacrifice so much of ourselves to make sure everyone else is thriving.  We become performers in our own lives.  Next thing you know, you've forgotten what you enjoy, what makes you you, and what fills you up when your cup is empty.  This can often lead to burnout, anxiety, depression, and resentment. 

You're probably thinking "Is counseling for me"?  The better question is, "Why not you, sis"?  You deserve quality counseling to help you sort through childhood wounds, how scary and intimidating it can be to be an adult out on your own and/or to be a mother responsible for raising and making decisions for your little human(s).  The joy and sometimes frustrations and resentment that come with being a wife, friend, sister, and daughter.

Imagine having a safe space where the focus is all on you and you alone.  Where you don't have to worry about anything or anyone else, in fact, someone is holding space for you and attuned to your needs mentally.  A place where you are able to say what you're feeling without judgement and without concern of what the other person is thinking because this is your safe space.  Visualize yourself gaining tools to help you address and communicate things that you have been holding onto for years.  Feeling confident and safe to tell someone your story and to learn ways to work through the stress or shame that you've been carrying.  Imagine being able to process your emotions in a healthy way and managing them in a way that feels like you're in control of your emotions versus your emotions being in control of you.
