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. Reach out to one of TherapyDen’s women’s issues experts today.

I teach from my sacred wound and incorporate deep somatic and embodiment practices based in both science and personal experience. Learn how to shed old systems of oppression that used fear to control you and force you to self-abandon. We're no longer going to deny your deepest desires, your intuition, your power and freedom. You belong to you, and it is your birthright to experience pleasure and joy.

Being a woman means that you face a unique set of challenges. Although opportunities for women in the workforce are greater than ever before, they are still fraught with challenges when it comes to being respected for our work and being afforded the same opportunities for advancement as men. In addition, women typically assume primary responsibility for children and elderly parents. A focus of my work is on helping women navigate this treacherous and often confusing landscape.

— Marla Cass, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in San Mateo, CA

My approach is built on a foundation of feminist, anti-oppression values. I believe therapy is ineffective if the greater social context a person lives in is not examined critically; most of the time, doing so is empowering for all genders.

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. When life then adds unexpected and challenging stressors on top of an already jam packed schedule, the stress can almost feel like too much to handle. There is no need to go through challenges alone! Call today so we can determine if AROSE eTherapy is right for you! Relief is a call away

My commitment to intersectional feminism guides all my work with patients. Reproductive justice, body autonomy, and decolonization of psychotherapy demand focused and intentional effort. I pursue ongoing experiences and continuing education to support my growth in this area. I also work with patients to heal from trauma, including intergenerational trauma, that results from colonialism, white supremacy, and misogyny.
