As a counselor, I am a strong believer in the power of finding healing through creative expression, both internally and externally. I work from an integrative mind/body perspective to journey with you in order to better understand what can best support you in your healing. Depending on what fits best for you, I am a Registered Art Therapist and have extensive training in complex trauma. I am also a level 1 graduate in Somatic Experiencing and am trained in EMDR and DBT. I also integrate approaches from Internal Family Systems and other modalities that support the untangling of generational, systemic and environmental trauma.

You're a professional who feels like an imposter. You're carrying around all this fear, shame, and hurt. Outwardly, you seem like you have it figured out but deep down you're struggling to get through the day. You're fed up with things feeling so hard and out of control all the time. You probably can’t even remember the last time everything didn’t feel so difficult. But one thing is for sure, you’re ready for relief. You’re ready to feel more confident, more energized, and to have some inner peace. But most of all you’re ready to feel like you have some control over your life again.

I believe that with support and the right therapeutic relationship you can make the changes you want in your life. I am a Certified Sex Therapist and I attended the Sexual Health Certificate Program at the University of Michigan. I work with folks who want to fully experience sexual pleasure, but aren't sure how. This may be related to sexual pain, sexual trauma, or an upbringing lacking education about sexual health. My approach honors and addresses situations in the past, but also gives you ideas about how to feel better in the here and now.

Often, the work is getting back in touch with your Self in a deeper way—like re-calibrating your inner compass.

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.
