After more than twenty-five years as a practicing attorney, I retrained as a pastoral psychotherapist. I chose this approach because I believe that we are all spiritual beings and in order to experience emotional healing and growth, it is important to attend to that which gives meaning to our lives, however we choose to express it. My experience as an attorney, along with my career transition, give me a unique perspective on the way challenging life experiences, even desirable ones, may impair emotional wellbeing. I am able to assist with anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, grief, and loss.

Every person – and every family - faces challenges that can overwhelm or get us stuck in patterns that aren’t working. Every life stage has its own pressures, and children/adolescents and aging individuals create additional challenges for communication, coping, and adapting. I believe in the process of encouraged and lasting change in a safe environment. I know that each family has unique strengths, stories, patterns, roles, transitions, culture and influences; I have competency in both traditional linear psychotherapeutic methods as well as family systems methods, and can integrate these for an approach as unique as you are.

On the surface you flash a smile, get things taken care of, and seem fine. But deep inside you know you haven't been able to address unexpected life events from the past, and now it's showing. The quality of your relationships is taking a hit; maybe it's school or work that feel way more daunting than ever. As a result, you're starting to feel exhausted, stuck, flirting with burnout, and lost as to how to get a hold of this. What you really need is a non-judgmental space where you can unpack those past events with someone who gets it, so you can find your sense of direction again and reconnect with yourself and others.

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.
