You are not alone.
Every year, tens of thousands of women across California seek the services of a licensed therapist. Many are looking to manage their stress better or get out from underneath anxiety or depression. Others are seeking ways to improve their personal lives, relationships, or careers.
If you are suffering from emotional pain and want to improve your mental health, you are far from alone. One in four adults will experience a mental illness this year, and even more people will experience stress, grief, or problems in their home or personal lives. Working with a clinical psychologist is an effective way to develop new understandings, skills, and tools so that you can feel better and work towards building the life that you want.
Women’s mental health matters.
Mental health matters for women’s lives. We experience depression and anxiety twice as often as our male counterparts – and these rates are even higher for women of color and LGBTQ women. Women also face unique stressors at home and at work, which can have both subtle and profound impacts on our emotional well-being.
Some of the challenges my clients describe include:
- Pressure to ‘do it all’
- Challenges with dating, relationships, and marriage
- Experiences of bias or discrimination
- Stress about finances
- Imposter syndrome
- Struggles with eating and body image
- Loneliness and difficulty making friends
- Caregiver stress
- Balancing competing work, home, and personal priorities
Women’s mental health is not a luxury, it’s a necessity. When we care for our mental health, we’re investing in ourselves, our relationships, our careers, and our goals.
