Therapy for Women

Virtual therapy throughout New York State

This is therapy for women who are over the burnout.

Living in New York can be overwhelming. And, finding your balance as a woman in New York is hard because of the pressure to juggle it all – work, your social life, relationships, and finding your life’s purpose… all at the same time. It’s unrealistic and stems from demands to look like a woman who “has it all!” Add in your personal aspirations and family commitments… it’s exhausting. Women’s therapy can help.

If you’ve ever felt like you had to speak louder just to be heard, or you need to sacrifice your needs to suit the needs of others when no one else makes you a priority – it’s time for a change. You don’t have to carry the weight of the world! Therapy for women can give you the tools you need to make changes in your life and feel more inner peace

A Feminist Approach to Women's Therapy

Many life challenges and societal pressures disproportionately affect women. From facing gender discrimination, unrealistic standards of beauty, and systemic biases to navigating hormonal changes and life transitions, women often grapple with issues that require specialized understanding. 

I provide a feminist approach to women’s therapy – working with women who struggle with dating, relationships, self-care, work, and their social lives, and conflicting feelings about motherhood, This is paired with a combination of CBT and psychodynamic therapy to help women create a more positive narrative of themselves.

You're not alone. The struggle is real - on many levels.

With all of the demands placed on women by others, therapy is one of the best places for you to feel heard, and explore what you really want out of life. My therapeutic style is warm and compassionate, for I understand how hard it is to navigate through women’s issues – especially when coupled with cultural gender expectations that have been influencing women for generations. I encourage my clients to be as open and honest as possible in therapy so we can meet their goals. There are many reasons women seek therapy, including:  

Relationship Conflicts
Express your feelings and needs more effectively.
Career Decisions
Decide if it's time to feel the fear and do it anyway.
Self-Esteem & Identity
Stop letting your insecurities get in the way of living your life.
Work-Life Balance
Is there such a thing? Let's explore what you need to feel as fulfilled as possible.
Anxiety & Mental Health
Asking for help is one of the most effective acts of self-care.
Pressure from Loved Ones
Replace exhaustion and burnout with boundaries and inner peace.
