Using Constructivist Grounded Theory as a methodological approach and Feminist Standpoint Theory as a theoretical framework, this study sought to investigate and define the processes throughout the mentoring relationship as experienced by female counselor educators. This study yielded the Female-Responsive Mentoring Model for effective mentorship for female counselor educators over the course of their academic and career trajectories. Findings from this study indicate that effective mentorship is a beneficial practice that assists female counselor educators and doctoral students in developing more confidence in their abilities, increase likelihood of doctoral program completion, and increase research productivity.
