Counseling for Young Women

What’s going on?

If you are a young woman between the ages of 17 and 35, I can bet you are undergoing your share of challenges.

  • Balancing expectations and demands of family, friends, work, and more
  • Striving for authenticity while meeting the needs of others
  • Defining your own priorities and sense of purpose
  • Developing and maintaining emotionally safe bonds with others
  • Gaining a sense of competence and sufficiency in your spheres of influence

While navigating these life challenges, you may also be grappling with other issues.

  • Healing from an abusive relationship
  • Breaking free from a damaging family role
  • Suffering with a distant or demanding view of God
  • Combatting ongoing feelings of being “not enough” or “too much”
  • Compulsively responding to challenges in ways that hold you back

How can therapy help?

The type of therapy I practice is empathic, experiential, and relational.

I want you to experience

  • Compassion – the sense that you are understood, that you are not alone, that you are fundamentally worthy. Period.
  • Clarity – the sense that you and your life make sense, that the ways you perceive life developed for important reasons, and that meaningful cause-and-effect relationships exist.
  • Connection – the sense that your feelings and needs matter, and can be communicated with safe others in ways that create a sense of vitality, comfort, and closeness.

I practice therapy that values both insight – understanding the origin of a problem and experience – actually practicing something different.

Practicing something different can take the shape of things we do in session and things you agree to do outside of session.
