Dora's ideal client is an individual within the LGBTQIA+ community, possibly affiliated with the military, first responders, nurses, teachers, or shift workers. They likely struggle with trauma, including religious and vicarious trauma, stress, and burnout. Seeking individual therapy, they desire support in self-compassion, mindfulness, and self-discovery. They want a safe, affirming space to explore vulnerabilities and deepen self-understanding. They seek to manage negative thought patterns, regulate emotions, and live in the present moment.

We are all searching for love, belonging, and worthiness, but it's not always simple to get those things. Anxiety is crippling, depressive thoughts are invasive and entrapping, relational conflict robs us of the connection we once celebrated, and grief seems to strip our lives of all of the above in one fell swoop. These challenges, intrinsic to the human experience, are not meant to be faced alone. If you're seeking connection, worthiness, belonging - if you're looking to find meaning in your story - the time to begin the work is now.

As your therapist, I hope to provide a space for ALL of you, your joy, pain, fear, courage, and compassion. I began my love of therapy first as a client working through my own lived traumas. I spent a lot of time with therapists who didn’t look or have experiences like me. I found relief, but I never felt the depth I needed to heal. This inspired me to become a therapist. I use Solution-Focused, Narrative, Bowen Family System and Trauma-Informed models in my healing work with a focus on Decolonial and Indigenous frameworks. I have lived experiences with the immigration, prison, foster care, correctional, and mental health systems.

Our lived experiences often shape our meaning and understanding of our world and sometimes those experinces bring us internal and relational difficulties. Clouding us from knowing our own skills and confidence to lead our most fulfilling life with a sense of empowerment and authenticity. I believe neither our circumstances or experiences define who we are and when our stories no longer match our sense of self we can feel a multitude of emotions and unsure of where to turn for support. Developing a space to feel heard, seen and supported is where others can find the strength to re-create their lives.

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.
