Through individual therapy sessions, our therapists will work with you to develop a custom treatment plan that is solution focused and based on your specific goals, needs, and values. We will empower you with the tools and support so need so you can resolve your issues, gain confidence and break free from negative behavioral and thought patterns.

Mental health issues affect more than just our individual lives– they can impact our families, partners and loved ones! Couples and family sessions are unique because the couple or family is the "client”, meaning your therapist works with you to find solutions and strategies that work for everyone involved. Sometimes an unbiased third party can help you break through as a couple or family and get the skills and tools you need to thrive. We regularly work with family members who are not individual clients themselves. We are also proud to offer sex therapy for our couples or individuals struggling with sexual health concerns.
EMDR is a holistic and form of therapy designed to diminish negative feelings associated with memories and traumatic events. The goal of EMDR is to fully process past experiences and sort out the emotions attached to those experiences. Negative thoughts and feelings that are no longer useful are replaced with positive thoughts and feelings that will encourage healthier behavior and social interactions. Ultimately, it teaches self efficacy as you teach your brain how to regulate itself. Though it was originally developed for PTSD, we find this intervention effective in treating a wide range of mental health symptoms including: anxiety, depression, chronic pain and grief and loss. We also offer a subset of EMDR called Brainspotting.
At Therapy for Women, we deeply believe in community and de-stigmatizing mental health issues. which is why we offer workshops in person and online . Some workshops are one session and will teach you about a specific topic such as boundaries, trauma or grief.
We also offer small group workshops that are a few weeks long and limited to 10 members for a more intimate feel and more information tailored to you.

“In addition to individual therapy, I'm in Amanda's weekly group. I've created wonderful friendships here. It's also functioned as a safe space for me to experiment with things like stating my needs, getting vulnerable, setting boundaries, and receiving feedback from a non-therapist. [Amanda and Maddie] saved my life and then stuck with me to help me rebuild it from the bottom up.”
“They saved my life and then stuck with me to help me rebuild it from the bottom up.”
