Modern relationships are HARD. It’s a struggle to find the right person OR to wonder if your current partner is possibly the wrong person. It’s tough when you feel burned by or totally confused about your path. Maybe you’ve even made choices or overlooked things you now regret. Or, maybe it’s a relationship with a boss or coworkers who undervalue you or play favorites with others. Your work ethic and good ideas have long taken a backseat to putting out fires or just avoiding things way more than you should. You’re past thinking that life’s fair. But, you never thought that things could go THIS wrong or get under your skin THIS much.

One of the most magical components of therapy is how it provides a person with the opportunity to discover their true inner self.

I have been a therapist for many years, ( ~ 38-man I sound old) and have studied many theories and learned many therapeutic techniques, some more valuable than others. However, what's most important is the therapeutic relationship between client and therapist. A client must come to trust their therapist, feel accepted and have faith that their therapist knows what they are doing clinically. That being said, I have found Cognitive Behavioral techniques,, EMDR for trauma, Acceptance and Commitment therapy and others effective.

Accepting new clients! - Feeling overwhelmed at the prospect of starting therapy? As your therapist I hope to make it easier by bringing nonjudgmental curiosity, empathy, and humor to your healing process. Therapy should prioritize earning your trust and creating a space where you can safely explore your own emotions. I aim to guide individuals through processing uncomfortable emotions, disruptive thoughts, and negative patterns at a pace that is decided together. When necessary, I can take a more practical approach that infuses mental health education and effective coping strategies if you prefer more structure. I follow your lead!

Why does it always feel like my fault? Why can't I let go of the past? What does making a difference even mean when there's so much suffering in the world? These are some of the most difficult questions that plague us; that drive the tightness in our chest, the tension our jaw, the churning in our stomach. However, our minds, bodies, and communities also have incredibly resilient ways of adapting. In therapy, I help clients understand and leverage the ways their minds and bodies react to regain control of 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.
