Things to consider when Counseling women

I made a decision at the beginning of my career, i wanted to help women. I have spent the last 35 years of my life/career doing just that…

Mental Health illness is different in women than in men, women are more likely to seek help and are more comfortable talking about their issues. Talk-Therapy is remarkably successful connecting a persons subconscious past to their conscious present. ((see an article i have written, a Case Study of a recent patient – our journey together.

I believe that women do well when they have a strong support system. A female psychotherapist that understands and provides a safe environment will provide this “strong support system”.

Psychotherapy can a provide encouragement to have a voice, a safe place to have their feelings validated and the ability to help connect with their past and how they would like to see themselves change.
