When you’re suffering from anxiety, depression, or other mental health concerns it can be difficult to get out of bed, let alone build the life of your dreams. To others, you may appear lazy, or without motivation when in truth you have goals and dreams, but your mental health keeps you from reaching for them. You want to improve your mental health so you can get out of this rut and enjoy the life you’re meant to live.

I am a trauma-informed therapist trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. EMDR is a structured psychotherapy that primarily focuses on treating individuals who have experienced distressing, traumatic events. These experiences, when unprocessed, can become “stuck” in the brain, leading to a wide array of emotional and psychological difficulties. I have seen firsthand the transformative power of this modality and am thankful to have the knowledge and training to guide people on their healing journey.

An ideal client for my practice will be someone older than 30 y/o who is dealing with anxiety, depression and any trauma related issues (mistrust, PTSD, somatic complaints, nightmares, sexual dysfunction, low self-esteem just to mention a few). Potential clients should be committed to change as they have realized that avoidance has not gotten them anywhere. This person values the therapeutic relationship, is looking for someone that not only listen but also and most importantly, helps them to overcome their problems in a collaborative effort. Recognizing the importance of the mind-body connection in the healing process is a plus.

Starting therapy takes courage, especially if it is new to you or if you have heard negative things about the topic of mental health. Often, my clients are considering therapy for the first time or they are returning to therapy after many years. It is usually when something very difficult or unexpected is happening in their life and they just do not know where to start, are feeling alone, or confused. You are taking an important step toward finding the support you need. I appreciate how uncomfortable beginning this process can be, and together we will figure it out.

My recipe for therapy starts with three primary ingredients: a safe space, proven techniques and a plan tailored to fit each individual. Talking to a complete stranger about your struggles can be nerve wracking at first. I understand how important it is to feel comfortable with your therapist. So I create a warm, accepting space, free of judgement to help support your growth.

I bring a down-to-earth approach to what can be a difficult, but rewarding, process. I have been practicing since 1999 and have learned, without a doubt, that people heal and grow when they feel safe, not judged and understood. So, that is exactly what you can expect. I work deeply and emphasize teaching clients about their emotional lives. Psychological difficulties are often rooted in barriers to knowing, understanding or supporting ones feelings and needs. This leads to emotional distress and is at the root of anxiety, depression, and the impact of trauma. This is often the emphasis of therapy.

Throughout my forty years of professional life I have worked with people who are coping with the complete range of mental health issues and diagnoses, as well as the problems of everyday life. With each individual I strive to create a supportive atmosphere in which we can work together, developing a trusting relationship that will allow us to address your concerns, your goals, your needs. I know how difficult it can be to talk about one's self, to express thoughts and feelings, but in such a non-judgmental therapeutic setting this becomes easier and leads to resolving issues great and small that even at times seem unsolvable.

I deeply enjoy helping people to better understand and articulate what is getting in the way of achieving their goals, whatever those goals may be. Some common hurdles are parenting concerns, anxiety, depression, school performance, transitions, college angst, and relationships. I believe that we can use the past to better understand our present. We must, however, focus on the present if we want to make real changes in our lives. To do this, we will discuss what is working for you (we all have strengths) and what is not. I will help you to articulate your goals and the steps that you may choose to take to meet these goals.

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.
