Not every day is bad, but you're tired - tired of feeling stuck in the same recurring patterns and not knowing the way out. Sometimes, you feel anxious and worried "for no reason." You find yourself feeling obligated to say yes when you really mean no. You feel like you have to change yourself to fit in with the people around you or else you won't be accepted. The roller coaster of emotions becomes so overwhelming the only way to relax is through scrolling, substances, or Netflix, but you feel worse later. You worry there is something wrong with you but hope that there is relief from your anxiety and pain.

Just because you feel you can carry your trauma and pain alone, doesn't mean you have to. I gently and somatically help my clients understand patterns of behaviors and beliefs, which have kept them locked in lives and relationships they do not find satisfying or fulfilling. EMDR attachment focused therapy is my primary approach to working with clients. Many people want to change their patterns, but can't move beyond them to healthier ways of being in their lives, their relationships, and in their bodies. I work with clients to find their strengths, resources, and insights as we explore both their present lives and past experiences.

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.
