    Our Approach

    Women Empowerment Counseling takes a holistic approach with each client, which involves viewing the person as a whole. We utilize behavior modification techniques combined with recommended lifestyle changes to get you to a place of complete wellness! For example, when a client reports depressive symptoms, it’s important to rule out any potential medical issues, i.e. thyroid issues, low Vitamin D or Iron. Making sure you’re in good physical health also impacts your mental wellness. We encourage utilizing natural ways to improve depressive symptoms, like exercise and nutrition, combined with behavior therapy, with a focus on bran health.

    We all have a past and have been through challenging experiences in our lives. Our goal is to empower you to overcome those challenges to become the best version of yourself. You can find mental wellness and experience joy in life; we are here to help you achieve that.

    We utilize a variation of treatment modalities, which is individualized to you and your strengths & needs. We are skilled in and use the following therapeutic interventions:

    1. Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)
    2. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
    3. Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART)
    4. Motivational Interviewing (MI)
    5. Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)
    6. Mindfulness Techniques
    7. Psycho-Education (including parenting support)

    Each session is tailored to your goals and your needs. We use a collaborative approach and work as a team to improve your quality of life. You are the expert on your life; we are just the guide on your journey.

    Why the Focus on Women?

    The answer is simple. Women are unique. We have different life experiences than men, and face challenges that are specific to being a woman, such as:

    ·        Diagnoses more common to women, including depression & anxiety

    ·        Navigating fertility challenges & pregnancy stressors

    ·        Managing post-partum depression or anxiety

    ·        Coping with new mom life & breastfeeding struggles

    ·        Managing medical conditions more specific to women, such as breast cancer, menstrual cycle woes, and more

    ·        Managing hormonal imbalances due to women focused conditions like PMDD & Menopause

    ·        Women-specific traumas, such as miscarriages, domestic violence or abuse

    ·        Balancing career choices with mom life, including the very real & common emotion of “mom guilt”

    ·        Navigating societal issues, such as discrimination, objectification, sexual harassment, & body image perceptions

    ·        Issues more common to women, including self-esteem, body image, and navigating boundaries & healthy relationships

    ·        Teen girls dealing with issues related to maturing, menstrual cycles, hormonal & emotional developments, navigating sexuality & friendships, and managing school stressors
