Do the memories of the past continue to haunt you in your present life? Is your mind and body in a constant state of fight-or-flight, leaving you feeling exhausted or empty? Are you looking to heal on a deeper, cellular level instead of just putting bandaid over symptoms? If so, you have come to a safe space! Having worked at various mental health and addiction centers, I witnessed firsthand just how frustrated and unsatisfied people were with traditional approaches to mental health. This lead me to build my own private practice that weaves holistic and evidence-based approaches to help you heal the root-cause of symptoms.

I have been a Therapist for 27 years. Working with people who need and want to change is powerful. Most people have something they would like to change or heal from. Wanting or needing change does not make it happen, you have to work at it. Clients often come to therapy at a loss of what to do next and thats where the process begins. That's what therapy is all about. Finding the right therapist is critical to change and healing. I encourage you to call me.

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.
