I like that I can provide therapy to those who would generally not seek help. The stigma attached can be a deterrent to good mental wellness as well as cultural conditioning, tradition, and limited access. It is important for the therapist to understand the cultural language being spoken even before a word is uttered. When you feel understood, you feel empowered. I offer a safe space without judgment. Welcome to my place! I am a trauma-focused therapist with extensive training and experience treating persons with PTSD, anxiety, depression, formerly incarcerated persons, women's issues, conflict resolution, and life coaching.

Life can be unpredictable, demanding, full of adjustments and trials. Regardless of the life challenges you may be facing there is always hope. Hope gives us the strength and desire to change, grow, and become whole again once we've faced those difficult challenges. I believe each individual is unique and holds the keys to his/her own healing. Yet, sometimes we may need someone to work beside us to recognize what we already know and to help us to begin the steps necessary to achieve change.

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.
