Counseling for Women in Redondo Beach

Posted on: September 25th, 2017 by Dr. Angela Bisignano

It is no surprise that women face significant and unique pressures. We play many roles including mother, daughter, caregiver, confidant, friend, and lover. We are supposed to be happy staying home, and happy working outside the home. We are supposed to face life’s transition with grace, and hide our emotional mess inside.

Great emphasis is placed on our bodies, and how we look. We are supposed to be young, thin, and pretty. We can be powerful, but we must be nice! And not too demanding. And we still earn less than a man for the same work.

Then there is middle age that brings on life transitions like divorce, death of a parent, career delays, and retirement. We may need to refresh our coping skills or develop new ones to address these challenges.

Women have immense power to heal others with empathy and compassion. And yet, when we have personal troubles, we must be taught to heal ourselves with empathy and compassion.

Our brains are different than men’s. We are more communicative, empathetic, emotional, creative at solving problems, and collaborative by nature. We worry about how to express our anger, if at all.

Counseling can help you sort out your feelings and problems, no matter your age, and learn to find self-acceptance and health. Therapy offers the safe space to understand yourself, and find empowerment, peace of mind and happiness.
