Welcome to Forward in Heels!

You are a strong, ambitious woman who feels like something is missing. Your work/life balance is out of sync, your career doesn't bring you joy, you repeatedly engage in relationship patterns that don't make you happy, or you're just plain burned out. You've been putting off addressing these issues for months, but you're determined to make 2019 your year. You're struggling to keep everything together, but you're exhausted and can't do it anymore.

You've been doing everything right - getting the education, the jobs, and the accolades - but you're not quite sure what it's all been leading to.

It's time to actually enjoy this dream life you've designed!

Are you ready to silence that inner mean girl in your head who tells you you'll never be good enough, ready to learn the skills to finally put yourself first without feeling guilty, and ready to identify where you are falling short living out your values in your everyday life?

You can learn how to excel at what you do, stand tall, and light up the world!

Forward in Heels was founded by Jenny Maenpaa, LCSW, EdM, a licensed clinical psychotherapist who has helped women make bold, lasting changes in their lives for over a decade.

Embarking on the journey of self-discovery is right for any woman who is ambitious, goal-oriented, and motivated to evaluate her own life and take steps to reach the next step towards self-actualization. Our clinical expertise empowers clients to achieve their goals to make permanent, long-lasting changes both personally and professionally, while feeling emotionally supported and validated. She believes strongly in a set of core values that inform everything we do.

Women are twice as likely as men to develop an anxiety disorder, and women’s illnesses generally last longer, have more severe symptoms, and are more disabling. Anxious women are also more likely to develop an additional anxiety disorder, an eating disorder, or depression. A crisis is any situation where you temporarily experience an overwhelming event that can upset your normal equilibrium or baseline level of functioning. Whether you feel that your concerns rise to a clinical level or are simply impacting your life in a way you'd like to take charge of, we can find the right fit for you.

We are always willing to work around your demanding schedule virtually, including Skype and phone sessions. Through digital platforms, your time with your therapist is used to maximum efficiency. Remote access capabilities mean that clients can continue making progress towards goals from anywhere, anytime, including around necessary travel.

With 24/7 online scheduling and rescheduling, evening and weekend hours, a HIPAA secure payment portal, and the ability to see you in person and online, we make it easy to fit therapy into your busy life.

Taking the first step is simple - so what are you waiting for? Go ahead and schedule your FREE initial consultation below today!

Women used to think they had to emulate men to get what they wanted. Now they are realizing that unleashing their own unique, special qualities that set them apart from men is how they will achieve their dreams.

We are no longer dancing backwards, trying to mirror men.

We are moving forward...in heels.
