I strongly believe that we are all essentially "OK" but that life can throw many things at us that cause us to think we are not. Together we can talk about what has left you feeling less than "OK" and find a way back to a place of self-confidence and belief.

I admire your courage for taking the first step toward a happier and more fulfilling life. Seeking help through therapy isn't easy, but it's a crucial investment in yourself and your future. Many of us deal with anxiety, imposter syndrome, past traumas, and the stress of our careers and lives. These issues can make us feel stuck, ashamed, and alone, thinking that changing our surroundings will fix everything. But true change starts from within. We often face the same problems, no matter how much we try to change our environment, because the real issues are still there. I know these struggles well, both personally and professionally.

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.
