Counseling for Women in Illinois
As a female therapist, most of the women I work with are working mothers. They desire a fulfilling career while also raising healthy children. Furthermore, they want to do all this alongside a partner who shares these values and responsibilities equally.
Why Should You Consider Counseling for Women?
The women who come to Live Lekko for support also have another thing in common: they want to break emotionally unhealthy family patterns. They want to raise their children with more care and attention than they received growing up. They know this requires caring for themselves, focusing on relationships, and working more sustainably. However, this continues to be a struggle.
These women find themselves feeling irritated, guilty, and alone. They are exhausted and often forgo activities that will rejuvenate them for more numbing "self-care" activities. It also feels more manageable to withdraw than to communicate their feelings and needs. This lack of communication creates tension for them with their partners. Where once these women felt aligned with their partners, now they feel like they're on opposing sides. They often argue and fail to find agreement and repair. As a result, these women are also secretly filled with sadness and resentment.
If you resonate with any of the above, don't wait to seek support until you feel trapped and empty. Counseling for women in Illinois can help. I know how difficult it can be to admit things are not working despite your best efforts. It's my job, as a therapist for women, to help you overcome these emotional stuck points so you can fully enjoy this life you worked so hard to create.
One thing that keeps women from seeking therapy sooner is the belief that they must do it all. This belief is wrong and unhealthy, but it can be hard to notice as our current culture supports it. This belief leaves women feeling burned out and full of shame no matter what they do.
What to Expect From Counseling for Women
In therapy, we will identify the perfectionist and people-pleasing tendencies that often go along with believing that you must do it all. You'll learn new and healthier ways to relate to yourself using self-compassion. We'll also be able to redefine self-care and keep it from becoming another thing to do. As a result, you'll be able to determine your individual needs and how to account for them in your daily life. You'll find flexibility in your schedule where there was no room before.
After counseling at Live Lekko near Champaign, IL, you will no longer pressure yourself. As a result, you'll be more effective at work while maintaining stronger self-care boundaries. You'll also feel lighter and more carefree. These positive feelings will allow you more fun and deepen your connection with others, including your children. Your relationship with your partner will also improve. Due to your newfound clarity, you won't be projecting anger on your partner anymore or withdrawing. Instead, you will be able to communicate clearly and find a common understanding again.
If you are a working mother emotionally exhausted and overwhelmed by the demands of life, I hope you take the next step in finding relief by making a therapy appointment. Together we can work on getting your life back.
