It is hard sometimes to enjoy and to be grateful for the present moment when you feel like there is a lot on your plate or when you just can’t get yourself out of bed. Your to-do list is overwhelming and daunting, you procrastinate, and you avoid doing something in fear of making mistakes. You feel discouraged, powerless, and emotionally drained, and these feelings stop you from achieving the things that would help you feel better about yourself. You have thought about therapy or have tried it before, but you feel you can’t fit it in with your busy schedule. You are ambitious and a go-getter, making it hard to fit it in the day.

Are you facing recent life changes, a loss of sense of self, or symptoms of anxiety/depression affecting your relationships, daily functioning, and progress in school/career? Do you feel exhausted, overwhelmed, and like there's no light at the end of the tunnel? Are you a young adult finding it difficult to cope with life demands of high school or college? Or are you a parent facing challenges with your teenager's independence, self-esteem, or mental health? If you've tried therapy without success, you may wonder if things could ever improve. All of this can feel tiresome and impossible at times.

I believe every client has the potential to find happiness. My role in your life will be to help guide you through goal-setting and daily mindfulness. Clients are encouraged to set the tone each session by talking about what they choose to disclose as our therapeutic relationship grows. I have a special interest in grief counseling as it not only pertains to losing a loved one, but also to losing a partner through divorce or break-up, or grieving the loss of an ability (physical or neurological). The loss of a pet is also something I have experience with.

Realizing you are going through a difficult time and seeking support from a therapist can be nerve-wracking and a little scary... "Am I going to 'click' with my therapist? Will they be able to understand and meet me where I'm at?" My main priority with my clients is to make them truly feel at ease and understood. I prefer to set small achievable goals- ensuring they can be met and remain hopeful about reaching a larger, perhaps intimidating goal. I am rather laid back in style and believe my clients to be experts of their own lives, needing some support in finding answers to solutions and reaching their goals.

Welcome! I believe our problems are related to both environmental and/or internal factors, however we don't need to be the victim of our current or life's circumstances. Our healing resides within each one of us, and all we may need is guidance to help us reach clarity to claim our true power within. The author and M.D., Scott Peck states at the start of his book, The Road Less Traveled, “Life is difficult.” When we experience those difficulties, therapy gives us an outlet to sift through those painful emotions of confusion, fear, sadness, and even hopelessness, but most importantly therapy can help give us a new outlook on life.

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.
