Does your child struggle at school socially, academically, or behaviorally? Does your child have difficulty focusing on schoolwork and finishing tasks in a timely manner? If you are a parent, is getting your child to do homework or chores a daily struggle and interfering with quality family time. Do you beat yourself up wondering, "What did I do wrong?" Or are you an adult who seems to forget important details or miss deadlines? Are time constraints at work or college overwhelming you and preventing you from doing your best? Do these difficulties affect your quality of life?

I recognize the utmost importance in helping parents identify and use a child's strengths to foster their future success, while targeting areas for growth. A child's strengths and areas for growth can be discovered through assessments/ testing, and/ or therapy. I take a collaborative approach to treatment utilizing various interventions (including, but not limited to, cognitive and behavioral interventions). "It's easier to find fault with what already is, than to have courage to create something new."

When I was in therapy struggling with depression and anxiety and thoughts of “I’m not good enough,“ my wise therapist referred me to a clinician who specialized in EMDR therapy. In a matter of weeks, the therapy rocked my world, giving me a life-altering perspective that changed my entire existence for the better. I immediately decided to enrich my therapist tool box by taking the intense training to become an Emdria-approved EMDR therapist. As a result, I help my clients experience radical, positive change in a matter of weeks or a few short months. I am blessed to witness my clients’ personal transformations.

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.
