Life is full of challenges when raising children. Finding a therapist for yourself or your child can be equally confusing. I can help you to untangle and heal some of the obstacles that that may be getting in the way of a more conflict free and fulfilling family life. My work incorporates Family Therapy, Parent Coaching, Child Centered Play Therapy, Sand Play Therapy, and parenting support/education. I work with children as young as 3, teens, families and individuals. Additionally, I incorporate teaching children, parents, and teens mindfulness based ways of reducing anxiety, worries, fears, and anger issues.

Many seek therapy because of the challenges they face in their everyday life. Individuals know that something is interfering significantly with their ability to find satisfaction in their life to avoid distress. As a seasoned and highly trained therapist, I provide an empathic environment that enables a shared journey into an individual's personal functioning. A respectful curiosity about problems and challenges develops, generating ways of resolving difficulties in life.

"It is the client who knows what hurts, what directions to go, what problems are crucial, what experiences have been deeply buried." (Carl Rogers, 1961) I view therapy as a journey that is led by clients and work toward guiding others through the therapeutic journey by providing a supportive environment. Therapy is tailored to people's styles, growth edges, and strengths. A collaborative relationship between a therapist and client is essential to working toward self-growth and wellness. I value the use of research informed techniques. I join clients on their therapeutic journey with the ultimate goal of wellness.

I work with people struggling with general life transitions, self-esteem issues, and ADHD. Most of my clients feel "stuck" in life or feel like "bad adults" because they struggle with managing their lives/responsibilities or struggle with feeling positively about themselves. I frequently work with people navigating new phases of life who are trying to figure out the transition and how it may impact their identity. I really enjoy working with individuals and couples who are highly motivated to make change and have the desire for a deeper understanding of themselves, and their relationships, but may be unsure of where to start.

Female Therapists

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.
