My specialty is primarily working with individuals dealing with alcohol and substance abuse/dependence and related problems. I am also highly trained in working with individuals with unresolved grief and trauma - persons dealing with depression, anxiety, anger and persons that have that general persistent feeling of being 'stuck' or feeling 'blah' - that disconnect that we tend to feel at times in such a fast-paced environment.

Nothing is more rewarding than helping people acknowledge and utilize their natural capacity to heal, survive, overcome, and thrive. The therapy hour typically feels less like a chore and more like having a genuine, present experience where clients have the space to show up exactly as they are and be themselves. We all deserve the time and energy it takes to have a deep and meaningful relationship with ourselves, and it is my privilege to sit alongside my clients as they do this important work.

Our lives stay in constant transition despite being creatures of habit. One may also be viewed as an outsider for choosing to reject societal ideations. Achieving self fulfillment, acceptance, inner peace and happiness may seem ever fleeting. Your attempts at achieving these milestones on your own have been thwarted and may have resulted in self doubt, feelings of hopelessness, emotional instability, or even resentment of self or loved ones. A logical, unbiased, nonjudgmental, objective and experienced professional may be the key to ascertaining inner peace and life balance.

Life can be hard sometimes, but some times are harder than others. After so many years of navigating a cultural climate of stress, division and injustice, it's no wonder most of us feel like we are walking around in a cloud of existential angst. While everyone responds to stressors differently, there is one thing we all have in common; we all have the need to feel seen, heard and understood.

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.
