Are you feeling stressed and overwhelmed with anxiety? Are you living in a marriage that no longer fulfills you? Do you find yourself wondering if you are enough for your children? You're asking yourself "what if I have a panic attack, what if my husband leaves me, what if I fail?" Do you ask yourself "who am I and what do I want out of life?" If any of this sounds like you, you are not alone. You deserve to live a life free of anxiety. You deserve to have a marriage where the communication flows and expectations are met. You deserve to live a life without fear of the "what if's".

You’re feeling overwhelmed, anxious, and stressed. Maybe you’re having trouble in relationships or adjusting to new circumstances. Or you feel depressed and can’t make yourself do things you need to and used to enjoy doing. You want to feel better, enjoy life again, and understand yourself on a deeper level.

I have been practicing Marriage and Family Therapy and individual therapy since 2005. Marriage is a bond that is often difficult to keep together as a couple goes through difficult times. Therapy will focus on components to assist clients from being stuck in their own way of thinking and processing. It is the stuck place that often brings people to feelings of helplessness, depression, anxiety and not perceiving issues with hope and options for change. I specialize in helping couples working through more severe issues, such as, infidelity, personality disorders, etc.

I have been a Therapist for 27 years. Working with people who need and want to change is powerful. Most people have something they would like to change or heal from. Wanting or needing change does not make it happen, you have to work at it. Clients often come to therapy at a loss of what to do next and thats where the process begins. That's what therapy is all about. Finding the right therapist is critical to change and healing. I encourage you to call me.

It can be overwhelming to think we might need help or to ask for help. Sometimes, life throws things at us that we simply don't know how to handle. I believe we have the capacity to get through challenges and come out stronger, but oftentimes, we need help to get ourselves to that point. I believe in creating an atmosphere to remove roadblocks, clearing the way for you to move toward a happier, healthier life and relationship. Together we will identify the thoughts and behaviors that contribute to feelings of insecurity, anger, sadness, anxiety, shame, or disconnect.

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.
