With many of the unique issues you face as a woman it can be easy to feel disconnected from others and stuck in a spiral of perfectionism, never feeling good enough, and people pleasing. With changes in health or infertility, you may also feel betrayed by your own body. Any of these experiences can lead to you losing joy and the hope that things can improve. Often, feelings of stress may set in, leading you to feel overwhelmed and stuck. Therapy can help you get to a place of self-confidence, where you can feel authentic and connected with others.
Learning to be gentle with yourself and treating yourself as you would a good friend can help you let go of a people pleasing mentality and empower you to be the best version of yourself. Learning to believe in your inherent sense of worthiness and freeing yourself from unhelpful or unrealistic expectations is an important step in creating a life of meaning and value. I have an expertise in this area and have focused my experiences and training on working with women since graduate school.
