Wise Woman Therapy

Online therapy for women in Chicago and Seattle.

You’re a strong, successful, independent woman and you’re seeking therapy.

Your life still looks good on the outside, but this is what’s on the inside.

  • Sleep issues: insomnia, over-sleeping, nightmares
  • Anxiety: excessive worrying about all that is going on and all that could go wrong
  • Addictive behaviors: distracting with being a workaholic, helping others who don’t want your help ( i.e. codependent smothering or trying to control or fix loved ones)
  • Relationship issues: conflict and arguments with partner, co-workers, friends and family members or pulling away from them and questioning your place in these relationships
  • Mood issues: feelings of sadness, loneliness or numbness

THERAPY FROM CHICAGO TO SEATTLE

Therapy is best when it’s a collaboration.

I’m excited to be providing online therapy for women in Chicago and Seattle now.

I live in Chicago most of the year and spend summers in Seattle and on the road on my Harley.

I’ve worked with women in Chicago and Seattle for over 30 years now.

I have learned a lot about what works in therapy and what is not helpful.

If you’ve been in psychotherapy or counseling before you may have had a rather passive therapist.

She just kept saying, “How did that make you feel?” “Tell me more about that.”

I am very interested in how you feel, but that’s not what counseling with me will be like.

We will collaborate as we work together.

Online therapy can be one of the things that helps you make sustainable changes in your life.

It’s about healing old wounds so you can move on with your life. It is clear to me that most women don’t acknowledge or see their own resilience. I help with that.

You are going to make all the decisions, but I will take an active part in this process and will give you ideas to try or reject.  I will assist you in setting realistic personal goals and then I will be around to help you be accountable to yourself to achieve them.

Some Common Issues

Perfectionism

Procrastination

Communication problems

Unhealthy Stress

The work we do together in session is extremely valuable. What you are willing to do in between sessions is likely to increase those gains in leaps and bounds. I strongly encourage keeping a journal. https://wisewomantherapy.com/blog/

To enhance our work, I will give you ideas for things you may want to read. (See page on Recommended Reading.)

HOW LONG DOES THERAPY LAST? 

 The duration of therapy is up to you. Some women might only need a handful of sessions to get their confidence back. Some women may just need to sort out a particularly tough time they are having. Others may want to do therapy for a year or so. Some women seek therapy for a while and then not for years. When life throws a few more curve balls they go back to counseling again.
