‘A woman with a voice is by definition a strong woman’ – Melinda Gates
What does being a ‘strong woman’ mean for you? There isn’t one definition. Women around the world continue to gain strength in today’s society, and that movement shows no sign of slowing down. Women today are expected to do it all, and many of us do.
How do you stay true to your strength and independence, while at the same time opening up and letting people see you in a way that reveals your ‘softer side,’ without being dismissed as simply ‘emotional.’ How do you break through the tough, exterior shell, and find strength in your vulnerability? How do you remain kind to yourself, and allow the level of self care you need without feeling guilty for sacrificing others? These things can often be difficult for many women, myself included. We sometimes struggle to ask for help for fear of being perceived as weak even worse, a failure – as a wife, a mother, a daughter, a friend, a professional.

‘A feminist is anyone who recognizes the equality and full humanity of women and men.’ – Gloria Steinem
I recognize women like us can feel very intense. For many of us, that is simply who we are. And while typically we love hard, emotional intimacy can sometimes be challenging for us, and our relationships sometimes suffer as a result.
While I work with women who find this dynamic challenging, I also work with their partners, both to help them understand the needs of women like us, and at the same time, help them figure out how to get their own needs met. You may have your own struggles inhibiting you from asking for what you need as well, perhaps old wounds from childhood, previous relationships needing to be healed, upbringing and culture differences, or financial and career challenges. Call me today and we can explore.
‘A gender-equal society would be one where the word gender does not exist.’ – Gloria Steinem
As much as I love to empower women, for me, empowerment knows no gender. Empowering women doesn’t have to be about disempowering others. Frankly, it’s exactly the opposite. I don’t simply subscribe to empowering women, I subscribe to empowering people, regardless of where you identify on the gender spectrum.
Your gender is central to who you are and impacts all areas of your life. It can be difficult to identify in a way that is outside of how others perceive gender. Understanding and tackling your own fears can lead to increased confidence and empower you in a way you may not yet have experienced.
