Do strong emotions and intense memories impact how you live? Sometimes the past seems to become the present, despite our best efforts. Traumatic experiences and chronic stress can create negative thoughts and feelings that can interfere with daily functioning and overall well-being. Coping mechanisms are often developed to manage these distressing experiences, although they may become ineffective or even harmful over time. Addiction (substance/behavioural), anxiety/depression, etc., and other concerns can arise as a result of unresolved trauma. New to therapy? Tried other types of therapy? Call today for a consult.

Are you overwhelmed by your situation? Sometimes dealing with the present moment feels heavy when our past adds to the difficulties. Our thoughts, emotions, and even body sensations can weigh us down and make us feel hopeless. You may have tried different strategies to make things better, and maybe they haven’t worked well. We know you are doing the best you can. Sometimes people need a bit of professional guidance. We believe that once trauma and limiting beliefs are cleared from the past, it’s easier to deal with the present. When you can connect to that bright genuine strong part of yourself, it is easier for you to handle life.

You may be searching for acceptance, understanding, or the undivided attention that both listening and therapy provides. You may need the reassurance that what you have to share is going to be heard and received without judgment. Whether you are feeling anxious, depressed, angry, stressed, grief, frustrated, or just need to hear another perspective, the assurance that you are not alone in your thoughts, can help ease the anguish.

The genetics we are born with, including the programming we acquire from our family of origin combined with the experiences we have during the formative years (school) all contribute to the lenses we use to view ourselves and the world around us. Sometimes, these lenses are unhelpful or distorted and contribute to anxiety, depression and communication and relationship challenges. I use a neurobiological and family systems approach to help clients make sense of how they experience mental health, relationships and trauma. I am certified in Accelerated Resolution Therapy (an evidence based therapy) to process traumatic events.

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.
