Grief, trauma and the loss that comes with both may leave us feeling broken and like we’re not worthy or deserving of good things. You might be exhausted from constantly hiding and making yourself small, feeling insecure, or unsure of your voice. Life may have always felt this way. Yet, one thing you know for certain: you’re ready for something to change. You’re ready to be reminded of your agency, worth, and power. Despite the discomfort and fear, you’re ready to be seen and heard. Most of all, you’re ready to discover your voice!

I understand this experience firsthand and hope that my profile will provide you with the information you need to find relief. As a Latinx single mother, embracing and embodying Hispanic culture is a core value of mine. Having raised my children without the presence of a second parent, I have experienced juggling work and parenting. While balancing my life I have maintained my identity, sense of self, and overall well-being.

The challenges that we inevitably face in our lives, while frustrating and overwhelming, provide us with opportunities to gain insight into patterns that at one time helped us and are now contributing to our distress. I believe that these patterns not only impact the decisions we make in various avenues of life, but our perspective of the things that are happening to us and around us. Growth starts from developing a deeper awareness of these patterns.

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.
