Welcome! I am so glad you chose to explore counseling! It is my belief that life is filled with ever-changing seasons. There are some seasons that fill us with joy, excitement, and peace. Then there are other seasons that can plant seeds of intense emotions that may be difficult to cope with.

Life can be a lot sometimes. And then sometimes maybe life is going along really great, even as all sorts of smaller struggles or irritations come along, piling on top of one another, until life is no longer feeling as wonderful as it once did. In these moments, it can be helpful to talk to someone who can be a caring and objective ear. This is where therapy comes in.

I use a noninvasive intervention called Brainspotting for trauma. This technique helps move through trauma on the level of the brain, releasing the hold on you and increase freedom from past trauma. I use Mindfulness Interventions with people who have anxiety, depression, and addiction issues to reduce symptoms and to prevent relapse. I work with people who have experienced "Loss" in one form or another. For example, a loss of a loved one, a beloved pet or a disability that has changed ones life. I also do marriage counseling.

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.
