Effective and profound therapy is safe, interpersonal, and restorative. It is a way to finally connect the dots. It reveals what has been missing, what's been kept secret, or what the unconscious mind has repressed. It allows a person to see what's been absent, to fully understand their inner self better, and to restructure their thinking around the narrative so that a paradigm shift is felt.

People come to see me when they notice they are "stuck" for various moments in life. often when transitioning into a new chapter; either transitioning from teenager to adulthood, change of relationships or employment, loss and grief, processing past traumas that resurface due to life's changes. Their commitment and readiness for tackling the challenges together with me, makes the best head start in recovery

I am a 61-year-old mature woman with lived experience. I worked with people from different social and ethnic background, across three continents and was inspired to study the motivations behind human behaviours through the lens of the biopsychosocial model. As a provisional psychologist, my therapeutic work is inspired through this model to develop and understand the personal challenges and limitations that people endure. I endeavor to improve self-worth, personal strengths, and adaptability to foster long-term resilience. My strengths are empathy and compassion.

Life can be hard at times, and when we meet the messy moments it can feel isolating, overwhelming, and hopeless. We are human, after all. It makes sense that we may find ourselves stuck at times - stuck in our feelings, thoughts, and behaviours and it can be tough to shift things in the right direction, especially if we are doing it on our own. With honesty and compassion, therapy is a place to explore what you're navigating and create sustainable change that supports your healing and growth. I support women who are wanting to shift out of survival mode so they can feel grounded, confident, and free.

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.
