Women’s Issues Therapy and Counseling
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be?…Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. … It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”― Marianne Williamson,A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles”
The therapists at Colorado Women’s Center focuse on the whole woman. Our goal is to help each of our clients become the best version of themselves. Are there parts of you that you would like to change? Do you struggle with anxiety, self-esteem, trauma (PTSD), loneliness, depression, parenting, work/life balance, body image, postpartum or any other common issues that many women face today? If so, please know that we are here to help you get through life’s difficult moments, while using them as a way to transform.
Women face many conflicting messages in regard to living a full and satisfying life–messages concerning what we should do, what we should think, how we should look, how we should act, and who we should be. We put so much importance on these messages that we get caught up in trying to attain them–even if they are unattainable. And with all of the external noise and chaos, listening to our inner voice and deep intuition can be difficult. Therefore, many women struggle with feelings of self-doubt and unworthiness, which can lead to more serious issues.
Women’s therapy is not about placing blame on men for the challenges women face. Women’s therapy is about empowering women to discover their incredible beauty so that they are able to act from a place of truth and confidence. From this place, they will be able to find a proper balance between caring for self and others. From this place, they will learn to accept themselves for all that they are–both good and bad. From this place, they will be able to shine all of the parts they treasure most, without shame.
At each Colorado Women’s Center location, we help women to let go of the opinion of others–one of human nature’s biggest challenges. We help them learn who they are and how to use their gifts in the world, regardless of what others think. We teach self-forgiveness and letting go of guilt and shame, so that each and every client can learn how to shine first, from within.
We believe that women shouldn’t shine less because they are afraid of how their light will affect others. We feel that women should be proud of who they are in all of their beauty and imperfections. It’s okay to walk with your head held high. It’s okay to laugh out loud. It’s okay to dress in whatever way makes you feel beautiful. It’s okay to look different. It’s okay to love whoever you want to love. By projecting your self-love and security, you are able to show others how to do the same.
Women’s therapy addresses women’s issues with a sense of understanding and compassion. This form of women’s therapy and counseling is designed to honor the independent and collective female needs within an individual. By developing self-awareness and acceptance, one is able to recognize these characteristics in others. True self-esteem takes work. It has to be built. It takes persistence, forgiveness, and acceptance, but it is very possible and it is so worth it because self-acceptance is the key to life satisfaction!
