Clients that have benefited the most from my work over the past 30 years, are people who have difficulties with stress, depression, anxiety and symptoms of trauma. People often need a safe, supportive environment to explore their sources of pain and my approach to working with people inspires courage and connection to one's inner wisdom, confidence and creativity. I work with individuals, couples and adult families, and my observation is that people want to be heard, understood and validated in their relationships, families and workplaces. I love to engage clients in discussions that encourage self awareness and and assertiveness.

Taking Clients Again. Are you going through a transition and feeling overwhelmed and thinking "Now What'? Anxiety and depression are experienced by approximately 1 in 15 people and they often go hand in hand. I come to my private practice with education, my own experience in transitions, as well as helping many others. I also come with compassion and caring because the sadness not knowing what to do next and feeling alone can be scary and overwhelming. I have fifteen years of experience working with individuals suffering from the "Now What?" question resulting in anxiety, grief and depression. First step is hardest - call.

Are you working too hard to make others happy? Do you act like "everything is fine" but inside feel exhausted from keeping it up? Add on anxiety and overthinking as an attempt to rebuild your self esteem and it can turn into a vicious cycle where you are never quite good enough. It can feel defeating to navigate this on your own, but you are in the right place for help. You deserve to cultivate more peace within yourself, let go of your concerns about measuring up and focus on what's truly important to you.

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.
