Starting Therapy for women

What is therapy for women?

Therapy for women uses traditional psychotherapeutic techniques implemented through a feminist lens to help women deal with the emotional and mental ramifications of being a woman in today’s society. Thriveworks Savannah therapists will target issues like toxic masculinity, gender roles, misogyny, and other problems that women face daily and their impact on their mental health.

How does therapy for women work?

Therapy for women works much like traditional therapy, but will also integrate person-centered and humanistic therapy approaches at the forefront of treatment. Thriveworks Savannah therapists who specialize in treating women acknowledge the unique experience of each individual while treating a wide variety of concerns with empathy, compassion, and respect.

Is therapy for women conducted in person or online?

Therapy for women at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does therapy for women last?

Therapy for women will often last until the client feels that their therapeutic goals have been met, whether it continues for a few months or over the course of years. However, treatment should last at least five months, as that is the average amount of time therapy takes to have a lasting impact.

Need more help deciding?

All of our experiences are in some way, entirely unique to ourselves. No one has been through exactly what you have, and no one ever will. But there are some experiences that are easier for similar people to empathize with.

Even though each experience is unique, there are many situations in a woman’s life that are commonly shared amongst other women. These experiences can be full of joy, or they can be darkened with sorrow, pain, and frustration. When you feel as if you are all alone, know that Thriveworks Savannah is here to extend an empathetic hand and walk beside you as together, we fight for the happy, healthy life you deserve.

What Is Counseling for Women?

In many ways, Counseling for Women is very similar to counseling not specific to women. At Thriveworks Savannah, you will always be the center of the counseling session. Afterall, you know yourself better than any counselor ever will. Our job is walk with you and guide you towards a healthier, happier path. Only you can determine what path that is exactly.

Thriveworks Savannah also practices judgment-free counseling. Part of growing will always be failing, and it’s easier to fail in a safe, protected space. That is why we strive to first and foremost be empathetic towards whatever your situation is. Your emotions are entirely valid, no matter how wild or incomprehensible they may seem. Together, we can work through the lies intertwined with the truth, heal from any pain, and grow together towards that life you’ve always dreamed of.

Great, but what is counseling for women specifically? What’s great about counseling for women at Thriveworks Savannah is that it is specific to whatever you need it to be. The idea behind counseling for women is that some issues aren’t comparable to what a man might experience, or how you react to it might be very different. It’s easier to heal and grow when you feel like you have someone who truly understands at your side, which is why it’s important to have a counselor you’re comfortable with. Thriveworks Savannah is making that easier to find by offering counseling specifically for women

What Does a Counseling for Women Session Look Like?

There is never an issue too big or too small for Thriveworks Savannah counseling. Any battle, concern, insecurity, or hurt you’re facing is welcome in a counseling session.

With Women’s Counseling, there are some topics we address more frequently than others. Some examples include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Low Self-Esteem
  • Infertility
  • Post-Partum Depression
  • Menopause
  • “Empty Nest” issues
  • Domestic Violence or Abuse
  • PTSD related to Past Abuse or Sexual Assault
  • Eating Disorders
  • Relationship stress

Again, these are just a few of the issues we can address in a Counseling for Women session. Studies have shown that women are more likely to experience anxiety and depression than men. Although far from being gender-specific, anxiety and depression can look differently in women than men, and personalized therapy can go a long way in the healing and growth process.

It’s a sad but true fact that gender-stereotyping and assumptions have not gone away. For a long time, it was believed women’s hippocampus—the emotional regulation part of the brain—was larger than men’s, leading many to claim it was the cause for women’s higher distress levels. But a study published in 2015 showed the brains of men and women to be strikingly similar. Which leads many of the differences to stem from the unique biological, environmental, and psychosocial factors women face.

These are factors we can address, along with other cross-gender factors, in a counseling session with Thriveworks Savannah. Our goal is to get you to a place where you are happy, healthy, and fulfilled. It may seem like a dream right now, but with a little work it is more than possible.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
