Hello! In my clinical practice, I provide a nurturing, non-judgmental environment in which the client feels comfortable and safe to work through personal issues and/or relationship challenges. Therapy is a collaborative journey in which both the client and the therapist work together to uncover past core issues and present triggers that are sustaining emotional distress. Together, we will work to increase self awareness and emotional understanding so that you (the client) feel empowered to identify and to make positive, healthy and effective changes that promote emotional health, happiness, and personal growth.

All of us have issues or experiences that can be difficult to manage at times. I work with you to help you find solutions that improve your quality of life. If you have suffered trauma, this means finding some understanding of the trauma and resolving lingering effects. Parents get help in parent management techniques and learn behavior management. For those with addictions, this means working to understand the cause of the addiction. For the elderly, this means completing a life review and understanding the current situation.

Part of our journey through life involves challenges, setbacks, and crossroads. Sometimes, these come in the form of normal life transitions. Other times, it can be in the form of the unpredictable: trauma, loss, cancer. No matter what your current circumstance is, know this: there is hope. You WILL rise again-better and stronger than before and through this rising you will find peace, acceptance and personal growth. You will learn to turn your wishes into outcomes. You have already taken the first step. I look forward to helping you to continue on your path to healing.

Generally, each person and I begin by exploring the issues that has brought them to seek out my services. This exploration entails a joint effort that unfolds over time. A relationship is formed that helps us both to see more clearly how the individual is operating in their everyday life. It is through such an exploration that the individual begins to understand themselves, and, especially, their more intimate relating. I also believe that the person leads the treatment such that we will only go as far as each person desires. I can offer ideas, but, in the end, it is the individual who leads us.

I have been a therapist since 2003 and if there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years, it’s that everyone needs someone to talk to. We all have feelings, whether we feel happy, excited, anxious, worried, nervous, sad or depressed—we need to get those feelings off our chest. Another thing I’ve learned over the years is keeping those feelings bottled up inside can and will make us sick. Why is something as simple as getting things off our chest so difficult to do? I believe it’s because of our pride and fear of judgment about our feelings. As a therapist, I truly strive to allow people to speak freely in a safe environment.

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.
