Give yourself praise for making it this far! You might be debating about this decision or thinking to yourself if “ this is the right time.” I can assure you that “THIS IS THE RIGHT TIME!” I believe that therapy is a team effort that allows the therapist and the client to work together to identify the underlining problem. Therapy is a safe place for individuals to analyze communication, hurt, pain, trauma, and irrational thoughts, without being judged!!! Through therapeutic interventions, we will examine and review ways to better yourself and become a better version of yourself. I am here to listen, educate, and provide feedback.

Life’s circumstances can contribute to one getting off course leading to feeling lost, overwhelmed, misunderstood, or stuck to name a few. These experiences shape who we become, however whether it's for the better or not is up to each of us to decide. When one learns that what happened to them was not their fault and that their healing is their responsibility one can choose to take ownership of the rest of their life story. As challenging and debilitating as it may feel, seeking out support is a crucial step toward moving into a position where one is no longer surviving, but thriving in their life.

As your therapist, I will be compassionate and authentic. I will invite you into a healing space, nudging as needed, but never pushing beyond where you are ready. We will collaboratively identify steps to reach your goals. I will help you heal from pain, develop relationships that affirm you, cultivate hope, and empower you to become a more self-compassionate and authentic you. “I’m not enough” is a fear I’ve wrestled with, and a theme I constantly hear from clients who have experienced trauma, battled identity-based -isms, are wrestling with the complex emotions of being a teenager, and/or are coping with the stress of parenting.

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.
