Women’s Issues

Women face many conflicting messages and beliefs about what it means to live a full and satisfying life.  We can be very demanding of ourselves in ways that undermine our self-esteem and create conflicts within us and with those we love.  Sometimes it helps to have an experienced therapist to sort through what we want and how to achieve these goals.
