At Authentic Counseling LLC, we specialize in women and the unique experience that is a woman’s journey through life. Transitioning in life can be a challenge on its own and we believe that focusing on topics that represent your experience and life story are what makes us the perfect fit for you. Some of the topics include Self-Compassion, Social and Cultural Issues, Life Transitions and health concerns. No one has had the exact same experience as you and allowing yourself the space to explore, challenge and heal is what our focus is.

The possibilities as a woman are endless, and often times the only thing holding you back is yourself. There are so many different aspects to what make you unique and the various roles we live also influence our self-identity. You are a daughter, sister, wife, mother, lover, friend, employed, unemployed, and the list can go on for infinity. The purpose of Authentic Counseling LLC, is to help you understand your self-identity through a lens of self-compassion and love. Helping you discover what roles are working for you and which are not fulfilling allows you to live life wholeheartedly and authentically.

Learning to appreciate yourself for who you are allows you to live a happier and more confident life. The majority of women can be highly critical of their abilities and their appearance which is often influenced by an unattainable standard set by society. Excessive focus can contribute to the development of eating disorders, distorted body images, isolation, shame, and self-doubt. Allowing yourself the space and objectivity to appreciate what makes you an individual and tolerating what may not be “perfect” can open the doors to self-love.

Even if you are someone who feels happy with the person you are and the roles you play there are often things we as women cannot control and these include health concerns. These health concerns may include pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, infertility, postpartum depression, or a range of sexuality concerns. Navigating life when suffering from health concerns is a challenge and can often get in your way of enjoying the journey. Learning ways to cope and re-direct your focus can also allow space for healing and change.

Authentic Counseling LLC is here to help provide space, compassion while challenging you to find your authentic self. Life is not about the destination it’s about the journey and no matter your stage in life we are here to support you because we believe in the life experiences that you as a woman faces.

Families are a gift and at the same time we may always love our family members but we do not always like them. I believe that working with the entire family and recognizing that each person is a small piece of a larger system is vital.

  • Poor Communication Between Family Members
  • Divorce/Separation
  • Co-Parenting
  • Sibling/Parental Difficulties
  • Boundary and Limit Setting
