Women's Issues

The term “women’s issues” is broad and can refer to anything that might affect a women’s mental health. Some issues, such as post-partum depression, are specific to women, while others, such as anxiety, can affect both men and women. However, women may experience the issue differently. There are many types of issues that women can face today, and some of the most prominent concerns include sexual assault, woman-specific health problems, body image problems, self-esteem, sexuality, discrimination, sexism or stereotyping. Therapists specializing in women’s issues will provide a safe and supportive environment to help to empower their clients so they can find balance, improve their quality of life, and experience relief from emotional suffering.

The impacts of our culture and society on our experiences as women are always at the forefront of my mind when interacting with each person that sits across from me during therapy sessions. I look for ways to empower and affirm everyone in my practice to push back against these pressures to have a strong identity or become advocates and allies for the women in their lives.

— Heather Romero, Counselor in Atlanta, GA

I have worked with women in my private practice for ten years. I chose for my practice to be female only, because I felt that women have unique issues related to reproduction and food that were not being addressed in my community. Prior to private practice, I worked with the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center, as well as Planned Parenthood League of MA.

As women we juggle so much! We strive to succeed in our careers, maintain our close relationships, and manage our responsibilities. Sometimes this blocks us from making self-care, fun, and relaxation a priority.

— Amanda Wetegrove-Romine, Psychologist in San Antonio, TX

There are many things that women experience differently then men and having someone who understands and can offer support can be life changing. Between myself and the other women in my practice, we have experience with divorce, lgbtq+, fertility, postpartum, and much more. I believe both individual work where you can focus solely on yourself as well as group therapy where you connect with others in a new way and heal in community can be extremely helpful. We'll help you find your path.

The new face of single motherhood. What does it look like? Who does it include and who might be excluded. Dealing with superwoman and imposter syndrome. Creating a commitment budget that outlines your expectations and boundaries. Learning what's for you is for you, despite what others think. Helping women seek clarity on their journey to joy.

— verline gaddis, Licensed Clinical Social Worker

F**k society's rules about women being selfless. You do not exist simply to serve others. Your dreams, needs, feelings, thoughts, preferences, desires, and values matter. You deserve to have a life of joy, ease, adventure, connection, satisfaction, and meaning. To create and enjoy a life that is aligned with your definition of "having it all." No more settling and tolerating. It's time to heal, prosper, and thrive!

— Desiree Howell, Psychologist in St. Petersburg, FL

As women we often put ourselves last after everyone else's needs are met. This can lead to feelings of fatigue, burn out, frustration, resentment , lack of fulfillment and underachievement. Relationship dissatisfaction can lead to feelings of despair and depression. Confusion about sexual orientation can be isolating and scary. These are only a few of the issues women face. I can help you explore your own personal truth so you can connect to your authentic self and feel empowered.
