Types of Therapy

Feminist Therapy

Feminist therapy is a short-term integrative approach to psychotherapy that focuses on gender and the challenges that come with that. Through feminist therapy, clients explore their identity as individuals to find their strengths to gain a greater sense of personal agency in society and break through the stereotypes that bind them to certain behaviors. Therapists use tools like assertiveness training and role-playing to help clients build their self-esteem so that they can break free from the conformity of cultural expectations. Practiced in private or group settings, individuals, families, couples, and people of all ages and genders who want to discover how gender plays a role in their emotional lives and relationships may be interested in feminist therapy. Feminist therapy is also useful for people struggling with sexual abuse, incest, eating disorders, and body image issues.
