As a woman, you have the right to dignity, autonomy, and security. Unfortunately, many men who suffer from their own insecurities and misguided beliefs resort to abusing women to assert their dominance. Moreover, abuse is not limited to sexual or physical abuse. Verbal insults, such as constant yelling and badgering, constitute a subtle and powerful form of emotional abuse that can be far more damaging than physical or sexual abuse because it beats down a woman’s morale and self-confidence. I have helped women overcome their problems by providing one-to-one, compassionate, and nonjudgmental counseling as well as safety planning and service referrals. Below are just some of the issues I have dealt with that pertain to empowering women in a competitive world:
Assertiveness and Self-Esteem
If you are suffering from lack of assertiveness in your life and need help taking command and being proactive, I can help you become a motivational dynamo. Using a combination of self-awareness exercises and reaching inward to get in touch with your instinctive strengths and goals, I have been able to help women advocate for their personal needs in a realistic, yet pragmatic manner.
