“I feel like there is never a moment to relax. I feel overwhelmed, unappreciated, and am starting to feel resentful.”
Women often take on a lot of responsibilities and have a lot of expectations placed on them which causes stress, depression, anxiety, and even insomnia. If you are a woman it’s likely that you sometimes feel like a chicken with your head cut off!
You may be overwhelmed with child care, struggling in a relationship, feel spiritually empty, or stressed from the multiple things you need to do to maintain your home. You feel exhausted, worn out, and possibly under-appreciated and unimportant. Add to that the responsibilities of working outside the home, maintaining a social and spiritual life, trying to maintain a healthy family life, and it’s just too much to handle. You may notice that you have lost your patience, are yelling more than you like, are escaping with too much TV, too much wine, too many books, or too much sleep. You may notice that you are drinking too much. Soon, disagreements between spouses, difficulties with the kids, and even depression and/or anxiety begin to take over the better part of your day.
That girl’s time with your best friend is great for alleviating some stress, but there are times when the stress is just too much or too personal that you need someone outside of your family and friends to confide in and listen to you. Sometimes, you need a counselor to hear what you have to say, but not necessarily take your side. And sometimes, that therapist is just the right person to help you see exactly what the trouble is, what you need, and to help you make changes to find your way out. This is where we, at Legacy Counseling Service in Broken Arrow/Tulsa can help. We have compassionate, skilled mental health providers who can help you overcome stress, depression, anxiety, substance use, or insomnia.
Tulsa Counseling for Women
Mental health counseling using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy can be really helpful if you are struggling. Using these types of counseling techniques, therapists can help you identify your stress and understand your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors about those stressful things. You will learn coping skills, better communication strategies, and understand why you react the way you do and how YOU can make changes in your daily life to feel more in control, ask for what you need, and slow down. In counseling, we will also help you address any spiritual emptiness that you may feel that is contributing to your feelings of being overwhelmed and under-appreciated. Whether you are single or married, with or without children, if you are struggling with stress, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, or insomnia then we can help!
