Mental Health Counseling

Mental health and physical health are closely intertwined. Some physical issues cannot truly be healed without addressing underlying mental contributors. For example, did you know that oftentimes headaches are caused by referred pain from tight neck muscles as the result of muscular tension from chronic stress? While some important components of a treatment plan for chronic headaches should include physical interventions such as manual therapy and a targeted exercise regimen, no amount of trigger-point release or neuromusuclar exercise can fix the headaches long-term without addressing the underlying mental stress causing the muscles to tense up in the first place.

At Femwell we believe that everyone can benefit from routine visits with a mental health therapist to operate at their best. Our therapist, Hannah  Farman, is skilled in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and is passionate about walking alongside women on their mental health journeys to help them truly feel healthy from the inside-out.

Intake Visit


The initial session is a 55 minute long 1:1 appointment for you and your counselor to get to know each other and for her to learn more about your concerns and goals to determine how to proceed. During this intake session you two might review:

  • What brought you to therapy

  • The challenges you are currently facing

  • Your history and background including your childhood, relationships (romantic, family, friends), career, living situation, habits and routines, etc.

  • Your specific goals for therapy

Follow-Up Visits


Follow-up sessions are 55 minute long 1:1 appointments in which you and your counselor will work toward your goals through CBT methods.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)


CBT is an evidence-based approach to help change negative thinking patterns by discovering the link between specific thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Structured CBT sessions guide clients through identifying automatic negative thoughts and beliefs they have that result in unhealthy thinking patterns. Numerous studies have concluded that working with a therapist who is trained in CBT is oftentimes more effective than medication for treating anxiety and depression. It also is beneficial when done in conjunction to pharmaceutical therapy (when necessary) to create long-term healthy thought and behavior patterns.
