Women’s Emotional Health

McLean Counseling Center

Women may face environmental, psychological, and biological challenges related to their gender, which can have a significant impact on their mental health and well-being. If not addressed properly, these challenges can become burdens, leading to anxiety, depression, and a loss of self-esteem. Women are more likely than men to suffer from certain mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression, and their symptoms may differ. Mental health treatment that addresses the unique needs of women is available for those suffering from a range of conditions.

Common Issues Women Face:


Challenging gender roles at home and in the workplace


Eating disorders or disordered eating


Pregnancy loss or miscarriage


Weight or body image issues




Peri- and post-menopausal depression or mood swings


Safely taking psychiatric medications while pregnant or breastfeeding


Managing Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) or Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD) symptoms


Sexual assault

Our Approach

Every woman is different, which is why our therapists don’t try to squeeze every patient into a one-size-fits-all approach. When you seek therapy, your provider will work with you to develop a treatment plan that fits your needs and unique situation. We offer a safe and supportive space where you can share your challenges and get the support you deserve.

Our therapists are experienced in assessing, offering treatments, and coordinating care with other providers for optimal outcomes. This can include medical doctors, gynecologists, and obstetricians as needed.
