Are you suffering from postpartum mood swings? Or going over negative thoughts in your head? Depression and anxiety or feelings of frustration and despair can leave us lost, confused, or helpless. It may seem as though no one understands you and you feel cut off from friends and family that aren't experiencing the same things. You might not even be sure how long you've been feeling this way, but you know you are ready for a change. That it is time to step out from under the weight of uncertainty and begin to regain clarity and a sense of purpose. There is no reason to continue to suffer. You can and will feel better.

There are many reasons or motivations people may have for seeing a therapist, and they are all valid: You might feel stuck, out of balance, disconnected. Maybe you and/or a loved one are experiencing some form of loss or distress, are seeking change or healing. You may want to foster growth, self-exploration, nourishment, or acceptance in your life. Perhaps you just need a space where you can be validated and supported, without judgement.

I primarily work with adult and college-age clients, specializing in trauma, attachment/relational wounds, depression, and anxiety. Do you feel like you have been putting a bandaid on old wounds and traumas rather than getting to the core and healing them? Our work together often involves identifying unhealthy patterns that are being repeated, exploring the origin of these patterns, and learning new ways of coping. If you are feeling stuck and wanting a new approach to healing, please contact me.

In dealing with stressors, life events, challenging relationships, and traumatic experiences we develop patterns to keep ourselves safe and sane; which often also limits us. The challenge is unlearning these narratives and trusting our innate wisdom. When we feel safe, secure, and accepted for who we are we can begin the process of shedding what doesn’t work for us, while exploring our untapped potential. I believe you are the master of your story; and I hope to create a safe space where we can gain insight about your inner battles, develop skills to enhance holistic development, and realize the potential of your authentic self.

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.
