This isn't what you expected. Long days filled with exhaustion, and even longer sleepless nights. The feeling that what you are doing isn't good enough; that you are not good enough. You feel like you're failing. Failing your family, your friends, your children, and even yourself. Some days you feel so overwhelmed that it's like the breath has been knocked out of you, and you can't help but wonder "will it ever get better?"

I believe wholeness consists of 4 intertwined areas of health: spiritual, mental, emotional and physical. My desire is to assist you in achieving and thriving at your greatest potential. What is keeping you from being who you were designed to be? Maybe you've hit a few bumps in the road and have lost your footing or your path. Maybe its a lot of bumps, or maybe they are hills or even mountains. It is in those seasons we need a fresh set of eyes, renewed inspiration, and motivational encouragement to help us get back on track.

Are you finding it hard to cope with stress? Uncomfortable with uncertainty? Is your worry interfering with your ability to concentrate, leading to avoidance & procrastination? Maybe you've spent hours scrolling through Psychology Today profiles but froze when it was time to choose one. A part of you would do anything to avoid calling to book this appointment. I get it. But, your untreated anxiety or depression interferes with too many areas of your life—making it harder at work and in relationships. You're isolating because it all feels exhausting and overwhelming. Change is usually challenging for you, but this time, you're ready.

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.
