Counseling for Women
Are you ready to feel more satisfied, resilient, and happy in your life?
Counseling really does help.
Team up with our therapists to feel better and live happier.
At North Boulder Counseling we work with women to help them balance their thoughts and feelings in a way that makes them especially powerful. During difficult experiences, people tend to rely heavily on their thoughts or emotions. But, in reality, finding an inclusive middle way gives you the opportunity to make decisions with your head and your heart. From this place, you will find grounding and strength to make sense of your life from a smart and emotionally sound place.
The truth, you actually know what’s best for you. You might just need some help unclouding your mind so you can figure it out. It’s our job to support you in finding your way so you can make these big decisions. We will work with you to examine areas of your life that are challenging and help you learn new ways to cope with difficulties to maximize your success. We will share our thoughts on what we hear you saying. Then, give you the opportunity to let us knw if it sounds right. If it doesn’t we and recalibrate. In this way, we are teaming our expertise in the psychology field with your expertise about yourself. It’s the perfect team.

Women Experience the World Differently.
Many of the women that come to us for counseling in Boulder, CO share that they wonder why they aren’t happier. They have worked hard and mostly done the ‘right things’ in their life. Furthermore, they are open-minded, smart, and kind. So, they wonder: “why am I feeling this way when I have a good life?”
If you have thought this or are struggling with similar emotions, we want you to know that you’re not alone. These are very normal feelings and they’re very treatable with therapy.
You'll feel happier with your life after counseling for women
When you work hard taking care of everyone else, you are likely to lose track of your own inner voice. That quiet guide inside you that knows what you need each day to feel most alive. Often, it feels like you have to change everything, or almost everything, in order to be happy. And, that feels impossible or overwhelming. But, so often it’s smaller external stuff that needs to be addressed. So actually, your happiness is well within reach.
What's the difference between ANXIETY & STRESS?
Many of the symptoms of stress and anxiety overlap like:
- trouble focusing
- racing heart
- distracted or hyper-focused
- racing or blank mind
- trouble seeing the good in things
- tension in your body
- agitated or restless
- grumpy or short-tempered
The biggest difference between stress and anxiety is time. Stress is a healthy part of a full life because it is also exciting and challenging in some ways. But, the difference is that it ends. So, you can be stressed about a work project, moving, being busy, or your finances. But once the issue is resolved and over, your stress fades. When the stress is constant, present at a low hum even when things are going well or there are no big projects then it is anxiety.
Another big difference between anxiety and stress is that you feel anxiety even when there’s clearly not a problem. And when there is a problem, you feel more anxiety than is typical under those circumstances.
Stress is a state that we move through while anxiety is a trait of our daily experience. So, if you hear yourself saying your ‘stressed out’ or ‘super busy’ most days, you may be more anxious than depressed. If you can’t remember when you went days without feeling stressed, then you may be anxious.
What is DBT?
DBT is exceptionally effective in helping people create change and tolerate difficult experiences and feelings. DBT groups have been known to help people who are stuck make enough change to feel freedom and hope for a more satisfying life.
DBT stands for Dialectical Behavior Therapy. DBT is an evolution of CBT or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy that employs the central tenets of CBT and introduces more mindfulness concepts. The foundation of each is increasing your awareness of how you feel, think and act and how those three aspects interact to create the life you have.
DBT also includes a focus on specific skills for accepting that which we can not change both in ourselves and in the world around us. As you may imagine, this skill on its own is enormously valuable.
