There are many ways we humans can find ourselves stuck in patterns that don’t serve us, in our jobs, in our relationships, as parents, or in our creative lives and what makes us happy. I have found EMDR to be a highly practical way to guide my clients to discover for themselves the beliefs and emotions that operate sometimes in our awareness and often outside of consciousness that can feel almost like the strings of a puppeteer; moving us to automatically react, feel, think, and behave in our lives in ways that seem to want to be helpful but often miss the mark, or even at times lead us wildly astray.

Are you looking for a therapist who does more than just listen? I strive to understand; and to help you understand. I help clients stay focused on what they want MORE of in their lives. We also pay attention to what obstacles and maladaptive coping mechanisms are at play. While it is essential to learn to be present with what is currently happening, our work will sometimes reach to heal the past. This gives you the freedom and inner spaciousness to reach toward a better future.

Since 1981 I've specialized in helping people heal from all types of individual, family and workplace stressors. Originally, I helped individuals who were exposed to suicide, homicide, disaster or accident. I treat a broad range of issues that impact our lives...hurt feelings, shame, disappointment, profound loss or trauma. I might use EMDR, Ego-state, Hypnosis, Brainspotting, Visualization, NETmindbody, SSP & other techniques during sessions. Bottom-line, if you want to be more 'comfortable in your own skin' or 'at ease' with yourself, I might be just the therapist for you.

Most of us enter the clinical office in search of sanctuary and healing. In my office, clients find a place where they can heal from the unexpected disruptions, heartbreaks, chronic disappointments, profound grief, and repetitive anxieties that mark their lives. They tell me that, finally, they can see what is going on, understand how it impacts their lives, let go of it, and develop more productive and joyous ways to engage life.

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.
