What do know about being misunderstood and not appreciated for who you are? Often when you think about who you are and how you would like to be, most people do not get you. You are not alone; many individuals are struggling to find a place where they belong. Right now, you are going through life trying to fit into places that are toxic. The experiences you are having to find an identity that represents who you are is making you insecure.

It feels like you’re about to ​🅴🆇🅿🅻🅾🅳🅴​​​​​​​! You're stuck in a repetitive cycle with little improvement. You find it hard to smile sometimes and it makes you wonder when peace will arrive. You’re burnt OUT, too tired to hang with friends, too OVERWHELMED to play with your kids and the sight of your significant other is not helping. How long will continue with these repetitive cycles? This isn’t a healthy way to live and if you continue you may end up resenting the world and yourself. Operating from a place of discomfort is never easy and finding the help you deserve can be even harder.

Life can be difficult. Managing the ups and downs of life can be especially stressful for those suffering from anxiety, depression, eating disorders and addiction. Putting down unhelpful habits can be hard. Even if you are in recovery, maintenance is not always easy. We often turn to things to make us feel better, not realizing the damage this does. Taking things one day at a time and choosing healthy coping mechanisms can be easier said than done. Sometimes extra support is needed to make the right choices.

Our journey through life has no straight lines. It is overflowing with unpredictable twists and turns. Over time, we develop chronic and automatic responses that sap our vitality and rob us of the ability to experience the positive feelings of love, joy, and pleasure. As a result, people enter therapy wanting to change something about themselves, their circumstances or their relationships. Every person, above all else, wants to give and receive love. The client is the single, most potent contributor to successful therapeutic outcome. I, therefore, tailor treatment to the needs of each individual via office or Telehealth sessions.

That's ok, most of us have done this. I am here to help. I can work together with you to develop more effective ways of dealing with these life stressors so that you can learn to live a happier and successful life. As a psychotherapist I have learned how to guide my clients to do just that.

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.
