“And then the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk to bloom.”
– Anaïs Nin
In spite of the rebirth of feminism in the 1970’s – a movement of which I consider myself a part – women still face the same issues they’ve had to confront from the beginning of civilization: puberty, leaving home, relationships, work, spirituality, marriage, having children, divorce, parents aging, menopause, and death of a loved one. Just to name a few.
Because of the always-shifting changes in women’s opportunities, roles and challenges, there are more options and possibilities than ever right now. Alas, this happy occurrence can lead to more opportunity for confusion as well.
Having personal experience with many of these pivotal life moments gives a depth and richness to what I can offer women as a therapist.
