We all face difficult times in life but when it becomes harder to face life's challenges, depression or anxiety may be a factor. I view therapy as not only an opportunity to learn techniques to manage and cope with symptoms of depression and anxiety, but also as a journey of self exploration, awareness/understanding, and growth. While we can't change the past, we CAN heal contributing factors to depression/anxiety, such as family/relationship problems, trauma/abuse, substance abuse, codependency, and grief. My style is empathetic and supportive, providing a non-judgmental atmosphere for personal growth and change.

Feeling sad, anxious, overwhelmed, angry, and confused means we’re human; these are emotions we all experience occasionally. But if "occasionally", has become "frequently", it's time to get relief. Finding a therapist who will really hear you, may be your first step to addressing relationship issues, depression, anxiety, over-eating, even parenting problems. My style is honest, supportive and direct. A therapist's job is not to give advice, but to create a safe, non-judgemental place where you can figure out what you need to do. When change seems impossible, therapy provides hope for something different.

I’ve been able to help adults and adolescents with their emotional issues that show up in many ways: relationship problems, feelings of anger, anxiety or depression that may seem unchangeable, difficulties with work or school performance, or simply feeling stuck. My approach is psychoanalytic, insight-oriented talk therapy. I help patients reach a deeper self-awareness and emotional freedom that can effect lasting changes, improve and enrich their lives, and lessen symptoms.

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.
