I have worked with adult individuals and with couples for 25+ years. I love what I do. As a part of my practice I utilize various psychological theories while interlacing skill-building techniques related to depression, anxiety/panic, and anger management, communication skills, healthy boundaries, personal growth self-awareness, and trauma/abuse histories. I strive to help people live more fully and functionally in their present-day lives by better understanding how the experiences and relationships from their past inform current experiences, emotions and behavior choices.

For over 26 years I have been working with people seeking improvements in their personal lives or relationships. I welcome individuals, couples or families from all backgrounds whether their concerns are personal or relational. My approach is “strength-based,” which means that I look for client competencies and resources, and try to avoid pathologizing people because of their problems, past or diagnoses. How often and how long the therapy will last depends on client goals and treatment needs and will be mutually agreed upon. The atmosphere in my office is relaxed and warm, and clients are always treated with dignity and respect.

Our world is a broken one filled with broken people, and oftentimes those broken people hurt one another. We are designed for connection with one another, and sometimes those connections go awry and create emotional dysfunction or trauma. That dysfunction and trauma often results in maladaptive means of protecting ourselves and coping with our feelings. This can manifest itself through substance abuse/addiction, dysfunctional relationships, depression, anxiety, and other issues. Are you feeling weighed down by any of these issues? Does any of this ring true to you? I hope to provide the compassionate support needed to recover.

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.
