Women: Quit Shoulding Yourself
I am very excited to announce I am starting a therapy group for Women and Expectations. A majority of my current clients are women living with constant expectations and pressure to fit the mold. I often hear clients talk about not feeling good enough, pretty enough, sexy enough, wealthy enough, hard working enough, promoted enough, thin enough, loved enough...you get the idea.
While we can make progress on the Shoulds during 1:1 therapy, I frequently find myself thinking the client I am sitting with currently would greatly benefit from talking to another client about her experience to see they are not alone. Fortunately for confidentiality but unfortunately for connection, HIPAA prevents me from facilitating these connections outside of the therapy room. In addition, group therapy has many benefits that 1:1 therapy does not offer (see this article, this one, or this one for more information on the benefits of group therapy).
The solution? Starting a therapy group for women like my current clients who can connect and learn from each other and know they are not alone in their experience.
Each session will be $40 per person, with limited reduced fee spots available for people with lower incomes. Average group fees in the Denver area are $45. It is an 8 week, closed group, meaning you get to know the people in group over the 8 week period. Email me at Lindsey@BoesTherapyServices.com or call at 720-507-4234 with questions or to join! I look forward to seeing you there!
