From time to time, everyone has struggles in life, whether it's adjusting to loss or transitions, coping with problems in relationships, or with balancing the demands of daily life. Though it can really help to talk things over with a professional counselor, sometimes people hesitate, fearing the possibility of being judged or not understood. I believe that providing a safe, trusting, and nonjudgmental environment is one of the most important elements of good therapy, an element that allows positive change to occur.

In this chaotic world, feeling broken is part of our shared human experience. The weight of helplessness, the shadow of sadness, and the sting of loss touches us all. But here's some truth- it's perfectly okay! Tears are welcome with me, feeling overwhelmed is alright, and allowing yourself to break is valid. You are never alone in these emotions and there is nothing wrong with you.

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.
