Are you a woman who is feeling overwhelmed or stuck or may be you are tired of how your relationships are going?

If so, you might be wondering “how long can I endure this?” or “will this ever get better?” Sometimes change and finding balance can feel not only difficult, but nearly impossible. At GroundWork, our therapists are here to assure you that transformation is possible. You can become confident and self-assured, and begin to live a rich, fulfilled life with an open and trusting heart; you can have relationships that are extraordinary and satisfying.
Orlando Women’s Counseling Can Help
Every woman has a story as we move through the rich transitions of our lives. We are daughters, spouses, lovers, and mothers. Our stories are not always easy, not always pleasant but those stories are “life”. Our women’s counselors help clients develop optimism, gratitude and appreciation, as well as cultivate a positive mind – a mind that tells itself healthy stories, using constructive language and is able to transform the painful events of life into meaningful experiences. If you find yourself tired of repeating the same mistakes that leave you feeling dissatisfied and empty and you are ready to overcome your fears and obstacles so that you may see yourself in a new way, our women’s counselors are ready to walk beside you and help you to open up to a world of new possibilities.
Women’s Counseling at Groundwork in Orlando can be successful in helping you redefine meaning and purpose for your work and family life, and find a renewed sense of peace and fulfillment in your everyday life.Many women suffer stress from the need for perfection in all their roles. Many of the responsibilities that women juggle are associated with increased risk for depression. Women often feel conflicted between meeting the needs of others and taking care of themselves, often losing a sense of who they are and what is important. Whether you are in mid-life and facing pressures from divorce, widowhood or health challenges or whether you are a quarter-lifer dealing with unrealistic expectations and stretched too thin from striving to meet too many demands created by multiple roles and responsibilities, counseling offers an opportunity to improve self-empowerment, resolve anger and resentment, build self-esteem, achieve work-life balance and make positive changes to live the happy and productive life you deserve. Counseling begins with the process of self-awareness and identifying your strengths. Women’s counseling can help you accept yourself and find peace with who you are.
Many women struggle with anxiety, depression, relationship problems, sexual issues or say that they just don’t feel happy or fulfilled. These issues often emerge during life transitions such as beginning a new career, starting a family, children starting school, becoming an empty nester, going through menopause, ending a marriage, facing job changes or retirement. During these times, a woman’s life can feel out of balance.
