Therapy for Women

Online Therapy for Women’s Issues in Ohio and Michigan

“You are not enough.”

“You must do it all.”

“You are all alone.”

Are these some of the thoughts in the back of your mind? 

Or what the world seems to be shouting wherever you go?

Women tend to carry so much weight on their shoulders—the expectation of being the perfect mother, daughter, or partner; having a thriving career; looking or acting a certain way; and keeping it together, all the time.

So we run, bend, and break in pursuit of this warped ideal. Sometimes, we might actually succeed (depending on what success looks like). Yet, we often find ourselves floundering, feeling lost, overwhelmed, or oh, so tired.

Uplifting women to find balance, confidence, and autonomy.

My name is Niki Parker. I’m a licensed independent social worker providing online therapy to women, teens, and kids throughout Ohio and Michigan.

As a woman, mother, stepmother, and wife, I know how exhausting it is to try to be everything for everyone, all at once. But let me tell you: You are enough. You don’t have to do it all. And you are far from alone.

My mission is to help women like you attain a more balanced life by unpacking and healing past wounds, breaking free from limiting patterns, and learning practical skills.

Whether you are struggling with painful memories, life changes, family challenges, or finding yourself in a multitude of roles, I’m here for you.

What Is Therapy for Women?

Therapy or counseling consists of meeting with a licensed mental health provider to talk about your difficulties and find practical ways to manage them.

Therapy for women focuses on empowering women to steer and overcome their unique challenges. The goal is to offer a confidential and nonjudgemental place to open up, explore your inner world, and reach fulfillment.

Do I Need Therapy?

Going to therapy doesn’t mean you need to be “fixed” or there’s something “wrong” with you. Seeing a therapist allows you to uncover different layers of yourself, gain valuable insight, and bring ease to your mind, body, and spirit.

How do you know if you need therapy? There’s no exact formula to it. But a therapist can support you in navigating the following:

  • Anxiety
  • Body image concerns
  • Career development
  • Depression
  • Difficult childhood or harmful generational patterns
  • Emotional wounds or trauma
  • Life transitions (e.g., postpartum adjustments, motherhood, moving to a new city) 
  • Parenting, co-parenting, or step-parenting problems
  • Perfectionism
  • Relationship and family challenges
  • Risky or damaging behaviors
  • Self-care struggles
  • Spirituality issues
  • Stress and burnout
  • Work-life balance

If you or a woman you know is experiencing any of the above, I can help. 

Yet, you don’t need to struggle for therapy to be worthwhile. Therapy is also a nourishing route to learn more about yourself and acquire effective tools to improve your well-being.

How Can Therapy Help Women?

Therapy can support women to…


You may be harboring deep emotional wounds from your childhood or past incidents that prevent you from moving forward. 

Therapy can help you process these distressing memories and cultivate positive beliefs without needing to go into detail about what’s hurting you. You’ll be able to recover from these painful episodes and start writing new chapters in your story.

Let Go

As women, we can get so caught up in the day-to-day rush and unrealistic demands that we fail to spot the limiting patterns we might have fallen into.

We’ll work together to recognize, challenge, and uproot damaging thoughts, emotions, and actions, understanding how they all impact each other. You’ll learn to listen to and advocate for your needs and set boundaries with yourself and others without slipping into negative cycles.

Gain Skills

Having greater knowledge about your past, patterns, and needs allows you to connect with your authentic self and what truly serves you.

While in therapy, you will gain strategies to address your needs, manage stressors, and maintain meaningful relationships. This may include distress tolerance, emotional regulation, interpersonal skills, mindfulness, and other mind-body techniques.
