• EmpowHer Counseling for Women

    At EmpowHer Counseling, we understand the multifaceted challenges that women face throughout their lives. Our society often imposes high expectations on women, leading to a range of issues that can affect mental health and overall well-being. We offer specialized services to address these challenges, providing support for women of all ages grappling with anxiety, depression, imposter syndrome, people pleasing, perfectionism, and other pertinent issues. Our goal is to empower you to lead a fulfilling life, grounded in self-compassion and resilience.

    If you’re feeling the weight of “having it all” yet struggling underneath, know that you’re not alone. EmpowHer Counseling is here to offer the support and guidance you need to peel away the layers of expectation and rediscover the joy and fulfillment in being uniquely you.


    Understanding Anxiety & Stress

    We understand that anxiety can be a pervasive force, significantly impacting the quality of life for many women. Underneath the appearance of having it all, anxiety and stress can erode one’s sense of well-being. 

    We offer targeted techniques and strategies to address the unique ways in which anxiety manifests in women, taking into account the various life stages and challenges they face. We are committed to providing a supportive environment where you can learn to manage anxiety effectively, reclaiming your sense of peace and empowerment.

    Navigating Life Transitions

    Life transitions can encompass a wide range of experiences - from career changes, relationship dynamics, and educational pursuits to motherhood, relocation, and the journey into menopause. Each of these transitions can impact a woman's mental health, sense of identity, and overall well-being. At EmpowHer Counseling, we specialize in guiding women through these periods of change, ensuring they feel supported, understood, and empowered.

    At EmpowHer Counseling, we believe that with the right support, life transitions can be powerful opportunities for growth and empowerment. Our approach is centered on understanding your unique experiences and providing personalized support to help you navigate the complexities of change.

    Breaking Free from People Pleasing

    At EmpowHer Counseling, we recognize the complex web of expectations and pressures that lead many women into the exhausting cycle of people-pleasing. Striving to meet the needs and expectations of others, often at the expense of one’s own well-being, can lead to a life that feels unfulfilling and inauthentic. Our specialized services aim to empower women to assert their own needs, establish healthy boundaries, and cultivate a sense of self-worth that is not dependent on others’ approval.

    If you’re tired of putting everyone else’s needs before your own and are ready to live more authentically, contact EmpowHer Counseling. We’re here to help you build the skills and confidence needed to break free from people-pleasing and embrace your true self.

    Overcoming Perfectionism

    At EmpowHer Counseling, we understand that the pursuit of perfection can often be a double-edged sword, especially for women navigating the complexities of modern life. While striving for excellence can lead to great achievements, an unyielding pursuit of an unattainable ideal can result in stress, anxiety, and a never-ending cycle of self-doubt. Our dedicated services for overcoming perfectionism are designed to help you find balance, embrace imperfection, and cultivate a sense of self-worth that isn’t tied to flawless performance.

    Letting go of perfectionism doesn’t mean lowering your standards or ceasing to strive for excellence. It means embracing life’s imperfections, celebrating progress, and recognizing that you are more than your achievements. At EmpowHer Counseling, we’re here to support you in this journey towards a healthier, happier, and more balanced life.

    Understanding Grief & Loss

    Grief can manifest from various forms of loss, not only from the death of a loved one but also from the loss of relationships, health, dreams, and the many unspoken losses women face throughout their lives. It can disrupt your sense of stability and lead to a wide range of emotional, physical, and mental reactions.

    At EmpowHer Counseling, we understand that grief and loss can profoundly affect every aspect of a woman's life, enveloping her in a fog of sorrow, confusion, and isolation. The journey through grief is uniquely personal, with no right or wrong way to feel. Our compassionate services are designed to support women as they navigate the complexities of grief, offering a beacon of hope and understanding through the darkest times.

    Embracing Body Positivity

    Weight and body image issues can stem from a myriad of sources, including cultural pressures, media portrayals of beauty, family dynamics, and personal experiences. These issues can significantly impact mental health. 

    Society often imposes narrow definitions of beauty, leading many women to feel inadequate or unworthy if they don't fit these rigid standards. From a young age, women are bombarded with messages that value appearance over substance, fostering an environment where self-worth is intricately linked to physical attractiveness. At EmpowHer Counseling, we challenge these cultural norms and work with you to redefine beauty on your terms.

    At EmpowHer Counseling, we recognize the complex journey women face in building a positive relationship with their bodies. In a society where unrealistic standards and constant scrutiny over appearance prevail, it's challenging to maintain a healthy self-image. Our dedicated services for addressing weight and body issues are grounded in empathy, understanding, and empowerment, aiming to support women in overcoming societal pressures and embracing their unique beauty.

    Cultivating Self-Confidence and Personal Growth

    Building self-confidence and pursuing personal growth is a journey, not a destination. Women face numerous barriers that can impede self-confidence, including gender stereotypes, societal expectations, and personal experiences of failure or rejection.

    At EmpowHer Counseling, we believe in empowering women to discover and embrace their fullest potential. In a world where women often face unique challenges and societal pressures, cultivating self-confidence and fostering personal growth are more important than ever. Our tailored services are designed to support you on your journey towards self-discovery, resilience, and empowerment, helping you to navigate life's challenges with confidence and grace.

    Nurturing Healthy Relationships

    Every woman deserves to be part of healthy, supportive relationships that bring joy and fulfillment to her life. Whether it's with a partner, family, friends, or colleagues, navigating these dynamics can be a source of significant stress and anxiety.

    At EmpowHer Counseling, we understand the complexities and challenges that women can face in their relationships. Our specialized services for relationship issues are designed with the unique experiences of women in mind, aiming to foster healthy, fulfilling connections that enhance your well-being and happiness.

    LGBTQ+ Counseling

    Understanding and embracing your gender identity and sexual orientation is a deeply personal journey. Unfortunately, being part of the LGBTQ+ community can be an uphill battle and often comes with a lack of support. EmpowHer Counseling can provide a confidential space to explore your feelings, experiences, and challenges related to your LGBTQIA+ identity. 

    As a volunteer counselor at the Gender Identity Center of Colorado, our owner and primary therapist, Tobi Brenner, has worked directly with people who identify across a variety of sexual orientations and across the gender spectrum. 

    At EmpowHer Counseling, we are dedicated to providing a safe, affirming, and inclusive environment for LGBTQIA+ women. In a world that often misunderstands and marginalizes non-heteronormative identities and relationships, finding a space where you feel seen, heard, and valued is crucial. Our services are designed to support LGBTQIA+ women through their unique challenges and experiences, promoting self-acceptance, empowerment, and well-being.

    Charting your Professional Course

    Are you finding that your career isn’t as rewarding as you’d hoped? Is it difficult to balance your career and your life? Or have you dealt with the struggles that are far too common for women in the workplace, such as glass ceilings, discrimination and sexual harassment, or other issues? 

    Your professional journey is uniquely yours. Our owner and primary therapist, Tobi Brenner, has an extensive corporate background, in corporate consulting, business operations and HR. She is uniquely qualified to understand your needs and challenges and help you navigate your next step. 

    At EmpowHer Counseling, we're committed to supporting you every step of the way. Whether you're just starting out, seeking advancement, or contemplating a new direction, we're here to empower you to achieve your professional aspirations with confidence and clarity.

    Navigating Sexual Challenges

    Sexual challenges can vary widely among women. Women frequently experience at least one struggle over their lifetime. They can include difficulties with sexual desire or arousal, painful intercourse (dyspareunia), concerns related to sexual orientation or identity, effects of trauma on sexual health, including sexual abuse, navigating changes in sexual health due to pregnancy, aging, medical conditions, or surgery, reproductive health issues impacting sexual life, or communication challenges with partners regarding sex or sexuality.

    EmpowHer Counseling is committed to providing compassionate and confidential support for women facing sexual challenges and issues. Understanding the sensitive nature of these concerns, we offer a safe space where you can feel understood and empowered to explore and address your sexual health and wellbeing. Our services are designed to address the unique and personal challenges women may face regarding intimacy, sexual identity, and reproductive health.
