I am honored to work alongside my clients as they begin (or continue) their path to healing. We therapists like to say “meet people where they are” in their healing journey, which means you can come to me with an established plan and clear goals, or completely confused about where to even start. I use a person-centered approach that assumes you are the expert on your own life. Together we can work on coping strategies for anxiety, depression, social skills, emotions, processing trauma, developing greater resilience, self-compassion, care, and confidence.

My approach to therapy is to create a safe space for opportunities where clients can express and explore their personal stories that is strength-based and future oriented. I do that through talk therapy that poses traumatic experiences can alter our world-views; sometimes for long periods of time. The first step in change is believing in why you are here. The rest can be achieved over time as we share insight into your experiences. As an Indigenous social worker I can contextualize your experiences through social and political contexts in contemporary and historical Canadian policy.

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.
