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.

In life, we ​​all go through difficult moments where we need to reinvent ourselves. Life’s circumstances often force us to question our self-esteem, confidence, and what we think of ourselves. Understanding how we feel is not an easy task, sometimes we get confused, and we may know something needs to change but don’t know how to do it. However, everything is easier when we seek professional help that can do what the people around us cannot, which is: listen non-judgmentally, understand our issues, challenge with respect, and guide us in dealing with our problems easier.

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.
