We all have things in our lives that we want to change, making adjustments starts to happen when we feel we are listened to, cared about and respected.

Being a human can be quite painful at times. We have complex feelings and thoughts some conscious, some unconscious. Trying to navigate life and our relationships can be hard. The beauty of therapy is we don’t have to navigate it alone. Together we can examine what has been coming to mind for you. I offer a calm presence and non judgemental space for you to talk things out. As we talk my hopes are you will embody a greater self awareness, resolve inner conflicts, experience symptom relief, improve relationships, and enhance your self esteem. Through this personal development my clients experience self acceptance.

Your relationships have been suffering and you find yourself irritable, withdrawn, or increasingly sad or numb. Or maybe you’ve been through challenging or traumatic experiences in the past and recognize these events are still affecting you today. You might also see these signs in your child and want to support them as they navigate challenging friendships, big emotions and stressful life changes.

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.
