Accepting New Clients! Do you ever feel like past experiences are still affecting your present? Have you noticed patterns in your relationships or behaviors that you can't quite explain? Trauma's scars run deep - flashbacks, fear, isolation. Chronic illness can add another layer of complexity, leaving you feeling frustrated and powerless over your own body. You might wonder, "Will I ever feel normal again?" Here's the truth: You're not alone. You are far stronger than you believe. Trauma and chronic illness may have shaped your experiences, but they don't define you. Together, we can build a path towards healing and hope.

Painful suffering is an experience of being human that can leave us feeling very alone; yet, we were not designed to suffer alone. When tended to (and therapy is one way of tending), our suffering can ultimately be transformed. What previously was hidden, buried, trampled on, or worse, can be seen and gently reclaimed. Therapy is a process that relies on relationship, and getting to know you and what's important to you is where we begin.

I work with people who are grieving the loss of a loved one from death....but also those who have been diagnosed with a chronic or terminal illness, those suffering the loss of relationships, independence, career or loss of community from moving to a new place, infidelity and those dealing with the loss of a beloved pet. Life is full of transitions. Many people end up feeling isolated, like the world is going on around you and you're just standing still, questioning whether you're going crazy or having a mental health issue because you're experiencing feelings you've never felt before.

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.
