Women

Women work so hard to meet all their obligations — family, home, friends, work — and often end up putting themselves last. Caring for others can be unrelenting and takes a toll on our wellbeing, including our physical and mental health. In fact, women are twice as likely to be diagnosed with an anxiety disorder in their lifetime as compared to men.

Women deserve a space to be nurtured. This is your place to take care of you! At Evolve Counseling, you will always be accepted and valued for exactly who you are. Together, we will work to explore your values, learn techniques to calm your mind and body, and identify goals that will be most impactful for your story.

Anxiety

What can I expect from therapy for anxiety?

Together, we will create a plan to implement evidence-based strategies to calm your nervous system, identify and let go of any unhelpful thoughts, and create an anxiety “toolbox” that you can use through any stressful times that arise. Having experienced anxiety firsthand, I know what a powerful difference these research-based techniques can make.

Do I really need therapy?

Perhaps you’ve just gotten used to not sleeping well, being irritable, and feeling stressed all the time– but there is a better way! Counseling can help you learn actionable techniques that you can start to utilize immediately to help you be the best version of yourself. Wherever you’re at in your journey, therapy for stress management and anxiety can help you grow.

How common is anxiety?

Anxiety disorders are the most common of mental health disorders. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, an estimated 31% of all U.S. adults will experience an anxiety disorder in their lifetime!

Studies have shown that the amygdala in a woman‘s brain is more reactive than in men, which can lead to greater anxiety for this group. Combined with the ongoing pressure that women face to care for others, it’s no wonder that women are nearly twice as likely as men to develop an anxiety disorder over the course of their lifetime.

How do stressful past events impact anxiety?

Sometimes traumatic experiences from our past can continue to impact us. Together, we will get to the root of the anxiety to determine if there is any unresolved trauma that continues to be a trigger for you. Through the implementation of EMDR, we can help process through and heal this trauma, so it doesn’t continue to negatively impact your life.

Life Transitions

What are some life transitions that therapy can be helpful for?

Ending a relationship, starting a new job, graduating college, getting divorced, losing someone you love, having a baby — I have been there myself and know the challenges these times of transition present.

What can I expect from therapy for life transitions?

Therapy can be helpful during these times to help process through the change and address any anxiety or fears that accompany these changes. Women can face immense pressure to be “perfect” — especially in the role of new motherhood. I believe in letting go of that toxic messaging and accepting all women, exactly where they are.

What will we do in therapy for life transitions?

Together, we can create a plan to help you manage the stress of the change, build stronger relationships for support, and use evidence- based techniques to help calm your body and mind. We can also help you develop self- confidence, self- trust and self- compassion during the transition to be as gentle with yourself as you are with those you love.

Grief and Loss

How can therapy related to grief and loss benefit me?

Grief can completely shatter your world and cause the strongest feelings to arise. It can even affect your body and cause inflammatory conditions due to the stress. Research shows that when you’ve been through a loss, it is extremely beneficial to process through these feelings with an empathetic professional.

What can I expect in grief and loss therapy?

First and foremost, I am here to hold space for you to tell your story. You will always find acceptance and empathy as you process through all your feelings that accompany grief. We will also move through a process to say goodbye, and determine how we will continue to honor and remember our person, and take them with us always.
