I’ve been a psychotherapist for over 16 years and have worked in various settings, including residential, community mental health, outpatient mental health/substance use and private practice. Over the years, I have seen a growing number of women coming into my practice struggling with alcohol use disorders - much more than just a fun “mom’s night out”. And - this seems to have only gotten worse throughout the pandemic. I now have a full-time private practice dedicated to supporting the unique needs of women - many of whom are questioning their use of alcohol to manage their stress.
While I can’t provide therapy over Reddit, I am happy to answer general questions about female mental health, anxiety, therapy and the connection between women's issues and substance use.
