Women's General Issues
Being a woman in today’s world can get complicated - family responsibilities, career/work pressures, and care taking roles can be overwhelming
Juggling these multiple roles can wear down your normal coping strategies, causing anxiety, depression, general feelings of being overwhelmed, or even physical responses. We see women in all stages of life that may be struggling with:
• body image issues
• childhood abuse and/or trauma
• relationship concerns
• abusive or high conflict marriages
• fatigue, chronic pain, or other physical difficulties
• rape and/or other sexual trauma
• addictions or other numbing behaviors
• betrayal in intimate relationships
Journeys Can Help
In the midst of high stress, change, or enduring difficult symptoms, having a compassionate professional walk along side of you can help. Working with someone who understands women and the issues they face can make the path to recovery and healing a comforting and exciting journey.
A Journeys therapist is well equipped to sort through the symptoms you may be having in order to get to the root of the problem. With up-to-date trainings and unique specializations, our team approach will help ensure that you find the counselor best suited for you. Whether your current symptoms are a result of recent stressors or past trauma, working with a Journeys therapist can help you gain an understanding of the issues and move forward to a more fulfilling and satisfying life experience.
But, you may still have concerns about women’s issues in treatment…
"I’m afraid that talking about all my problems in therapy will only make me feel worse."
Treatment will not make your life worse. Talking to a well trained counselor is a different experience than talking to a friend about your problems. Treatment is designed around meeting goals that you and your counselor will set together. Our therapists use language, questions, and dialogue thoughtfully to help you meet those goals and to help provide insight along the way. There are many ways to achieve your goals in therapy, and our counselors can quickly help you identify which method will be most helpful and comfortable for you personally. Working through issues in this way brings about much relief, greater joy, and empowers you with tools to help yourself long after treatment is over.
We generally recommend scheduling an initial assessment with a Journeys counselor to evaluate your specific needs, as well as determining best options for treatment and more precise answers to the questions you may have about the process. The Journeys team strives to provide you with the perfect fit professionally, and will happily direct you to the counselor with the best personality, expertise and approach for you.
