We all fall short. We all have issues. No one person's issues is worse than anyone else's issues; as such we all need someone to come alongside every once in a while. Sometimes it's for support, sometimes it's for clarity. When there is someone to help you bear your burdens they become lighter, more tolerable. When a client enters therapy hopefully they have an open heart, an open mind for therapy is about learning about the things that cause us pain and then learning how to cope with them. No one is broken; brokenness implies the inability to be repaired. We are all wounded and wounds heal, scars remind us of how stong we are.

Are you often unable to take a moment to yourself and decompress? Do the people in your life call on you to handle or ‘fix’ situations? Do you find it difficult to give yourself grace based on what “should” be? I hope to assist you in organizing the many overwhelming tasks in your life by identifying attainable goals to manage stress and prioritize your needs. I love working with individuals who face everyday stressors but lack the support and tools to cope with them. This could be- but is not limited to- people who are struggling with a lack of organization, dealing with heartbreak or other life adjustments.

This work has been my passion since I was over 450 pounds when I was younger and with the help of special therapists was able to lose over 250 pounds and managed to keep that weight off all these years. I was also sexually abused as a young child which led to the onset of my eating disorder.

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.
