SF East Bay Women's Psychotherapy

Our Attachment-Based Women's Therapy Program can help you cultivate self-love, set boundaries and have happy and healthy relationships. 

In today's culture, women are challenged with a variety of conflicting beliefs, messages and social expectations about how to live a rich and satisfying life.  As modern women in Western Culture, we are often faced with high demands to navigate issues such as a career, parenting and femininity that get internalized into shame, guilt and exhaustion. The pressure we put on ourselves may actually undermine our self-worth and negatively impact our interpersonal relationships with loved ones. Working with a sensitive and skilled therapist can help to unpack your feelings, needs and goals in a balanced and self-compassionate way.  You can learn how how to achieve these important life goals while maintaining self-care and health. 

Women must face the difficulties of living in a society that consists  of conflicting expectations, social pressure and cultural impositions of  femininity . Therapy can help you find your own relationship to what being a woman means for you. 

Women often experience anxiety, depression and self-esteem issues in silence, because of being so rooted in care-giving roles. You don't have to suffer alone anymore- North Berkeley Women's Therapy can help you cultivate self-love, set boundaries and have happy and healthy relationships. Learning to have a loving & compassionate relationship to yourself is a vital part of the transformative healing that often occurs in Women's Therapy. 

LGBTQ identified women not only must deal with the general issues that pertain to women, but also have unique challenges that can be supported in Berkeley Women's Therapy
