Folks may come in for help with a current issue, or to gain insight into longstanding patterns.

Our minds are often full of made up stories we have been telling ourselves for years. Often, they are stories that have been written based on who others have told us we are or are "supposed" to be. My clients are those who want to rewrite the stories that create a sense of heaviness or limit their life experience, including stories full of anxiety and negative thoughts. I help those who are looking to find inner peace, clarity, a better understanding of themselves, and freedom from the heaviness our minds and life experiences can bring.

Welcome! Life is hard, support is needed. I am passionate about providing a space for individuals to explore and facilitate ways to help them reach their own self-identified goals in life. I learn so much from the individuals I see everyday and consider that a very exciting honor. It can be so interesting to learn “why we do/feel what we do”. As a therapist trained in EMDR, I'm a big believer in the need to "go back" before we can move forward in a different way. Therapy is an opportunity to begin to heal past wounds so that we can navigate life free from the negative thoughts and painful memories that can make it so difficult.

I specialize in EMDR Therapy. Disturbing events from the past can negatively impact us in the present in many ways. Sometimes this is manifested by intrusive thoughts, flashbacks, nightmares, feelings of anger, and overall reduction in optimal functioning. EMDR helps to process these memories, decreasing and ultimately neutralizing the emotional charge. It eliminates constant unpleasant reminders and rids us of continued negative messages internalized tied to the memories. It is not possible to change what happened, but it is absolutely possible to change how you feel related to past experiences to move forward with more peace.

Accepting new clients I know that making the decision to find a person to speak with is an extremely personal and intimate one. Once this decision is made then comes the search to find the "right" person and this may not be an easy task. I want to reassure you that I understand this and strive to create a relaxed and welcoming environment. I feel the development of a trusting and respectful relationship between client and therapist is vital to the therapeutic process and is a primary goal in treatment. We will talk about your goals and how to use them as motivation in therapy. Then create a plan together to achieve them.

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.
