I enjoy helping people face obstacles in their lives and look at opportunities. I focus on assisting clients to develop their own individual action plan. Together we focus on solutions to reaching their goals. I believe it is important to meet your client where they are, and work from there. Everyone moves at their own pace, but people only change as they feel safe. It is very difficult to let go of old problematic behaviors until you have developed new constructive alternative behaviors. Developing your individual toolbox of coping strategies is a challenge all people face. We all have our own issues, they're just different.

"Growth is painful, change is painful, but nothing is as painful as being stuck somewhere you don't belong." Life is a journey and oftentimes along our journey we go through difficult life transitions that can feel impossible to overcome. We may go through feelings of being stuck in the same emotional states, unhealthy relationships or communication patterns that leave us feeling empty and yearning for change. When our lives begin feeling this way, finding a positive support can be crucial in navigating these changes we need to feel better.

If you’re looking for a therapist who is willing to be just as vulnerable and open as you are, I’m your gal. I’m the therapist that’s willing to laugh, and sometimes even shed a tear with you. My goal as a therapist is not to lead the way, but to give you a map that will help you along your journey. As a clinical social worker, my framework and ethical values differ from other providers. My framework allows me to see strength in everyone, and offer them unconditional support on their path. I consider it an honor to walk this path with you. While I might not have all the answers, we can find the best answers together.

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.
