I believe that each person has strength and resilience within them. Sometimes we only need a helping hand to get there. I have helped many individuals discover this strength, find healing, and move towards the life they want to live. As a person-centred therapist, I believe in empowering individuals to discover more about who they are in a collaborative approach to therapy. I work hard to build trust and create a safe, non-judgmental space for clients to come as they are, and together, take steps towards health and recovery.

The high levels of anxiety, anger and loss that families are facing today are wreaking havoc on our well-being and in our relationships. You may notice the ways you used to cope with stress are no longer working. You long to move away from being in survival mode but aren’t sure where to begin. You may secretly believe nobody out there will ever understand you or care to, which can be a lonely and painful experience. You being here means you are exploring the idea of reaching out to speak with a therapist. This is a brave and vulnerable first step.

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.
