Our Adult Psychotherapy practice is focused on Women’s Mental Health, with an eye towards the numerous, and often competing, personal and professional roles that we navigate throughout a lifetime. Although it seems we have more choice than ever, a woman’s identity and success continues to be externally defined by the ability to do (and want) it “all.”
Making sense of your personal identity within these multiple roles can often fall by the wayside, impacting both emotional and physical well-being. Woman-centered psychotherapy provides the framework to explore the complexities of your daily experience within a cultural context.
As an allies and guides, we can offer a safe space for you to be heard; a space where you can begin to explore, with gentle curiosity, the patterns and behaviors that make you feel “stuck.”
