Navigating the tumultuous waters of dating is never an easy ride, and sometimes when a relationship falls apart or implodes, nothing seems to make sense.

Change of Life
It seems a woman’s body is in an almost constant state of flux, but we often don’t give those changes the credit they deserve! Menstruation, pregnancy, the loss of a pregnancy, childbirth, the aging process, menopause, age-related illnesses are part of most women’s lives.
Also, in addition to relationship troubles, as a woman’s counselor, I can help you sort through fertility and childbirth difficulties. The process of pregnancy, childbirth and raising children is a long and complex one, and one that is paramount in the lives of many women. Dealing with any complication including the inability to become pregnant, the loss of a pre-born child, a healthy birth, and child raising are challenging and can be overwhelmingly difficult for a woman to face alone or married. These trials can become building blocks and don’t need to be faced without trained help. As a professionally trained women’s therapist, I can help empower you to work through these issues and resolve them safely and thoughtfully. While being a woman presents unique struggles, there are methods to bring about short-term and long-term goals and solutions.
While both men and women contract various conditions, some health issues affect women differently and more commonly. Women bear excusive health concerns, such as women’s heart disease, breast cancer, ovarian and cervical cancer, gynecological health issues, menopause, pregnancy issues, and specific autoimmune diseases.
Women suffer higher heart attack deaths compared to men. Depression and anxiety exhibit more frequently among female patients. Urinary tract conditions present more often in women and sexually transmitted diseases can cause more harm to women.
