Recent years have not been kind to our mental health. As we come out of this pandemic, it is natural to feel stuck, overwhelmed, or even inadequate compared to those who seem to be moving forward with ease. As a result, you may be questioning your level of connection in your relationships and home-life, perhaps your ability as a parent. Are you yearning for change but feel unable to find the motivation to initiate a plan of action? Are you wishing to be the source of support that your loved ones need but lack direction for how to fulfill this role as a parent or caregiver?

Anxiety brings about its unique set of challenges for adult children of immigrants. Early on, there's a natural tendency to prioritize the needs of others over your own. The weight of familial and societal expectations often fosters a strong urge to strive for everyone else’s happiness. Balancing your own needs alongside these expectations may create moments of self-doubt or guilt. It's common to worry about disappointing others and feeling uncertain about managing your anxiety. However, with therapy, you don’t have to face these challenges alone.

I share a common human experience with my clients and appreciate our journeys. Maybe you're considering therapy to connect with someone non-judgmental and outside your personal support system; you're feeling uneasy or worrying about life; you're withdrawing from others and no longer find joy and pleasure; substance use or a habitual behaviour is getting in the way of meaningful relationships and meeting life’s challenges; or you experienced a major event in your life and you're feeling overwhelmed. We will endeavour to understand these challenges and I will support you in taking steps that would benefit 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.
