"If you have never been called a defiant, incorrigible, impossible woman… have faith. There is yet time." ~ Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes

Welcome to our Women's Issues page, dedicated to addressing the unique challenges and experiences that women face. At The Empowerment Center, we understand the importance of creating a safe space where women can explore, heal, and grow. Amaia Oiz MFT is here to support you on your journey toward empowerment, self-discovery, and emotional well-being.

Understanding Women's Issues

Women's issues encompass a wide range of challenges that are often shaped by societal, cultural, and gender-specific factors. These issues can affect women at any stage of life, and seeking therapy can be a valuable step toward finding solutions and achieving personal fulfillment. Amaia Oiz MFT specialize in providing a supportive environment to address various women's issues, including:

1. Self-esteem and Body Image:

Society's standards of beauty and societal expectations can impact a woman's self-esteem and body image. We offer a compassionate space to explore and challenge these influences, fostering self-acceptance and promoting a positive body image.

2. Relationships and Intimacy:

Nurturing healthy relationships, setting boundaries, and navigating intimacy can be complex for women. Our therapists provide guidance and tools to establish fulfilling connections, enhance communication skills, and develop a deeper understanding of one's needs and desires.

3. Stress, Anxiety, and Depression:

Women often face unique stressors related to work, family, and societal pressures. We offer effective strategies and coping mechanisms to manage stress, anxiety, and depression, empowering women to achieve emotional well-being and balance.

4. Reproductive and Sexual Health:

Women's reproductive and sexual health encompasses various aspects, such as menstrual challenges, fertility concerns, pregnancy-related issues, and menopause. Our therapists provide a compassionate and non-judgmental space to address these concerns, offering support and guidance throughout different stages of life.

5. Trauma and Abuse:

Many women have experienced trauma or abuse, which can have profound impacts on their emotional well-being. Our therapists are trained in trauma-informed therapy, helping women process their experiences, develop healthy coping strategies, and reclaim their sense of safety and empowerment.
