I help adolescents and adults struggling with the effects of anxiety on everyday life. The lie that anxiety tells is that it will always be this way. The cycle of overthinking, avoidance & shame create patterns that feel impossible to break. Unhealthy patterns of thinking leave us feeling exhausted, hopeless and scared. Your life is meant for so much more. Maybe you’re tired of the personal struggle or you’re feeling helpless as a parent to an anxious child, but something has to give. You are ready to come up for air, unclench your jaw and walk in the confident hope of your future.

Though everyone deserves a deep sense of love and belonging, sometimes the ways we have learned to protect ourselves create barriers to experiencing these basic human needs.

Does your child or teen seem anxious or worried? They may be struggling with perfectionism, with what others think about them, or may be worried about their future. They may be having a hard time sleeping because they just can't seem to turn their brain off at night. Have they lost their spark, seem more moody or irritable, stay in their room too much, and think they can’t do anything right? Your child or teen may be struggling to see the positives in themselves and struggling to manage the emotions that they are feeling. As a parent, you may be at a loss of what to do for your child, having tried everything you can think of.

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.
