I work with professionals in their 30s and 40s who identify as ambitious achievers and yet feel stuck in the overwhelm of life transitions, such as considering a job or career change, getting a divorce, or moving to a new area. I also work with individuals who identify as being analytical, meaning that they often analyze or try to better understand themselves, find themselves more in touch with their thoughts than their feelings, and think and process information quickly.

Not accepting new clients
ACCEPTING CLIENTS As an LCSW for almost 20 years, I look forward to the opportunity to work with you on your goals. Each of us has the potential for positive change and it is often easier to achieve this with a therapist. I primarily utilize strength-based, systems, trauma, and cognitive behavioral therapy. I have experience empowering individuals facing grief & loss, addiction, MAT, trauma, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorders, as well as other life stressors. Clients include teenagers, young adults, adults, and older adults."When we are no longer able to change the situation, we are challenged to change ourselves" V. Frankl.

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.
