Trained in EMDR, I work with clients going through depression, anxiety, anger and relationship issues in their current life because of current or past traumatic events. In resolving past hurts, clients can begin living and enjoying the present moment. As a Christian, I can incorporate Integrative Christian Counseling for clients that are open to allowing the Word of God and its guidance during the therapeutic session.

My training in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) can help you process different kinds of events and/or feelings due to trauma big and small. Loss of a loved one, miscarriage, avoidance of grieving, having a car accident even losing a beloved pet. These are examples of life events that can cause turmoil, fears and feelings of being "stuck" and can be helped with EMDR. This evidence-based approach can help you minimize the physiological/emotional reactivity to these childhood and/or present events.

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.
