Grief is a natural response to loss, whether it's the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship or a major life change. Grief is a natural and complex emotion that can't be rushed or ignored. Although grief is normal, and something we all face, as a society we often struggle to know what to do or say when we find ourselves grieving or when there is someone grieving in front of us.

Coming from a background in counselling psychology, I have a big focus on approaching care from a compassionate and client-centred perspective. I believe it is a privilege to walk beside people as they traverse their journey and aim to support and empower them to flourish in whatever ways make sense. Although I work with a variety of populations, I particularly enjoy working with young adults and adolescents presenting with women’s health issues, chronic pain, depression, parenting challenges, life transitions, relationship difficulties, trauma, and ASD.

Female Counsellors

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
