Do you ever feel an extreme level of stress and cannot put in words exactly what is going on?
Do you often play so many roles that you feel disconnected from who you are?
Have you experienced a disconnect from the ones you love but can’t understand why?
Do you ever look at yourself and ask the question “where have I gone?” and experience feelings of despair?
Is your energy “spent” and you feel you can no longer rationalize this experience?
If you answered yes, or identify with any of these questions, you’re in the right place
If you can answer yes to any of these questions we see you. Maybe, you identify with the weariness that comes with these experiences. Either way, you are in the right place.
Often, as women, we play so many roles and often forget to take care of the main character. It is as if we believe we are invincible and cannot be penetrated. But, this pseudo invincibility eventually runs out. We start moving at a slower pace. We stop taking care of our physical appearance. And, we lose interest in physical or emotional intimacy. As a result, we may decrease our socialization. Or, lose sleep and experience changes in appetite. Often this is a slow progression. It sneaks up on us, and before we know it we are in tears. We may feel lost or empty, asking the question “Where did I go?”
Women’s therapy Madison, AL can help. Through therapy, you can learn to acknowledge the emotions you experience and humanize them. In humanizing your experience, you can have compassion, patience, and understanding. As a result, you can work towards honoring yourself and treating yourself like the queen you are.
Common reasons to start women’s therapy:
Depression and Anxiety in Women
Many women have experienced depression and anxiety. Yet, due to the idea of “pressing through”, “remaining strong” or “ getting over it” the issues are not addressed. The sad part of this is sometimes these are the most common phrases heard in the therapy office. We also know that the reasons for your depression and/or anxiety could be due to a complex and painful past. That’s why we are also uniquely qualified to address a number of very common women’s concerns. You can get help with intimacy counseling, sexual abuse therapy, and group therapy for sexual abuse in our Madison, AL therapy practice.
Women’s Therapy for Relationship Issues
Often, due to trauma, relationship issues may develop. This could include growing up in environments modeled after maladaptive relationships. Or, a lack of understanding related to intimacy and healthy communication with yourself and others. Often, during these times, we may fight unfair fights. We “lash out”. Or, we say and experience hurtful arguments. Women’s therapy can provide the opportunity for you to understand yourself better so that you can show up for yourself. This will allow you to be your best self for those you love.
Women’s Therapy for Adjustment Disorders
Life transitions can be difficult with the positive stressors and negative stressors they bring. Yet, each of them impacts us. In those transitions, you often need someone to walk with you through the journey. Which, can help it to be a lot more manageable.
Some examples of these transitions are:
- beginning college
- job transitions
- moving to a new city
- getting married
- having a baby
- empty nesting
- divorce or retirement
Women’s Therapy for Mood Swings
Mood swings are common and are not always due to hormones. Often women seek therapy to discover how to manage their emotions in a more healthy way. Your women’s therapist can identify triggers and environmental stressors. They may even discover physical health issues that may be impacting the instability in their mood.
Personal Growth Through Women’s Therapy
Often, women are seeking to gain a better understanding of themselves. And, to gain a higher level of self-awareness. There might not be any crisis or conflicts going on. They simply seek to understand their purpose and identity. In doing so, they can experience life in a more fulfilling way.
