“ My female friendships and creating sacred spaces for women– these are as important as my marriage. I’m positive I couldn’t live happily without my friendships.” – Terri Cole



Are your female friendships challenging?

Have you struggled to find the right crew?

Have you ever needed to “break up” with one of your female friends? 

Or have you gone into therapy because of a female friendship?

If this resonates, you are not alone. In my 25 years as a psychotherapist, I can’t even begin to tell you how many women have experienced these exact things. The pain and suffering of having not-so-great female friends landed a number of them in therapy long before any romantic relationship. 

But female friendships don’t have to be problematic. In today’s episode, I’m sharing the benefits of healthy female friendships, what they look like, and how to create them. I also share my own experience with female friendships and why I couldn’t live happily without my nearest and dearest pals.
