A woman’s identity can be strongly tied to her gender. The media is overflowing with the “ideal” images of women that set women up for unrealistic expectations and disappointment. Our very femininity can be called into question, depleting our confidence and our self-esteem.
There is a significant amount of research indicating that women face core issues that are unique to their gender. They may not even realize these issues exist until they begin to affect daily life, health, and relationships. Women can often benefit from exploring these issues through professional counseling.
