Many of us strive to establish and maintain an overall state of peace and good health in our lives. It is difficult to feel grounded with all of the pain, uncertainty and chaos life creates for us. Difficult life events often disrupt our sense of security, control, balance and connectedness and it can feel impossible to find our path again.

You may be wondering if you really need a therapist, like why can't you just keep doing it yourself? But you know you feel depressed, anxious...sometimes you feel like you can't handle one more thing going wrong. Friends and family are great (or not!), but there's nothing like having someone completely independent that you can confide in without judgment. My clients know they can trust me, they feel safe. I'm genuine, and I believe everyone has goodness and worthiness underneath your depression, anxiety, relationship conflict, or addiction and the related problems.

Being human is hard. Life with all it's twist and turns can be so confusing, what's right today is wrong tomorrow. Quite possibly you have been thinking about finding a counselor for some time and have been "fighting" societal stigma of mental health services. Telling yourself that you are fine, no one will understand, or feeling shame for needing help. One of my favorite quotes about healing is..."Healing doesn't mean the damage never existed. It means the damage no longer controls our lives."

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.
