Women’s Issues

Women's Issues Therapy and Counseling In Boulder, ColoradoIf you are struggling with loneliness, depression, anxietypost-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), work-life-balance, low self-esteem, body image, or any other common issues that women face today, please know that there is a way through the difficult moments.

Women's issues can be complex, making it difficult to reach out. Women face many conflicting messages in regard to living a full and satisfying life--messages concerning what we should do, what we should think, how we should look, how we should act, and who we should be. We put so much importance on these messages that we get caught up in trying to attain them--even if they are unattainable. And with all of the external noise and chaos, listening to our inner voice and deep intuition can be difficult. Therefore, many women struggle with feelings of self-doubt and unworthiness, which can lead to more serious issues.  

Women’s therapy is not about placing blame on men for the challenges women face. Women’s therapy is about empowering women to discover their incredible beauty so that they are able to act from a place of truth and confidence. From this place, they will be able to find a proper balance between caring for self and others. From this place, they will learn to accept themselves for all that they are--both good and bad. From this place, they will be able to shine all of the parts they treasure most, without shame.

We shouldn’t shine less because we are afraid of how our light will affect others. That would be a disservice to the world. We should be proud of who we are in all of our beauty and imperfections. It’s okay to walk with our heads held high. It’s okay to laugh out loud. It’s okay to dress in whatever way makes us feel beautiful. It’s okay to look different. By projecting our love and security, we are able to show others how to do the same. We all owe it to ourselves and everyone we encounter to act in our truest nature. 

Women’s therapy addresses women's issues with a sense of understanding and compassion. This form of therapy is designed to honor the independent and collective female needs within an individual. By developing self-awareness and acceptance in ourselves, we are able to recognize these characteristics in others. True self-esteem takes work. It has to be built. It takes persistence, forgiveness, and acceptance, but it is so worth it, because it is the key to life satisfaction!

At the core of women's issues is insecurity. Therefore, women are prone to worry and self-blame, because they often view themselves as failures when they aren’t able to live up to the external messages from society. This form of low self-esteem is what causes women to be more susceptible to loneliness, depression, the effects of PTSD, anxiety, etc. Together we can work on discovering your own internal messages. By setting goals that will help build your confidence, you will begin to discover parts of yourself that you treasure. Eventually, the outer noise will disappear. You will soon see that you don’t care what others think about you, because you will have gained a stable sense of self.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be?...Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. ... It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
