Most of my clients are insightful, high achieving teens and young adults who excel in their academic/work lives, but struggle in their personal lives. They often come to me seeking strategies to overcome anxiety and stress, harsh critical thoughts, perfectionism, overthinking and rumination, obsessive thoughts, and self-doubt. My therapy style is focused on helping my clients gain genuine happiness, find more purpose and life fulfillment, improve their confidence, and deepen meaningful relationships. I hold a modern view of mental health treatment: one that is non-judgmental, relatable, humorous, and most importantly, goal directed.

Sex and relationships can feel like minefields. Maybe communication resembles a boxing match, intimacy is a distant memory, or there’s been cheating, shaking your world to its core. Feeling unlovable, wrestling with unconventional desires, or being scared of intimacy due to past traumas – it’s heavy stuff. It’s not just about mismatched Netflix preferences; it’s about feeling disconnected, unheard, or stuck in a situation you never expected. This is tough territory, and it can feel oh-so-vulnerable to address. But you don’t have to face it alone.

My emotions make me feel out of control. I just want to live authentically & be accepted as me, but self-doubt & fear get in my way. My family/spouse is unhealthy at best & abusive at worst. I've lived so much of my life trying to be enough for everyone else that I lost myself in the process. I'm not even sure of who I am anymore. I thought they loved me, but then how could they treat me this way? My relationship feels like a constant rollercoaster. One minute things are great & then it's terrible. Worse, I have no clue how we even got there. It feels like madness. No contact? Limited contact? I just don't know what to do!

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.
