"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.

In a world that guarantees nothing, your world has just been turned upside down. A death has shattered everything; a diagnosis has changed everything; utter loneliness in your marriage has wrecked everything. Your life is no longer what you thought it was, no longer what you thought it'd be. You're grieving, but it's nothing like any grief you've ever known. You're left not knowing what to do ... and you always know what to do. You're kind, thoughtful, and introspective – the woman your friends turn to for help and support – but none of that's helping you right now amid the existential groundlessness of a life that's fallen apart.

Life can be overwhelming and challenges may seem insurmountable. It may be difficult to find a way through the barriers that are standing in the way of your personal happiness. Intense emotions like anxiety, depression, and anger can make managing stressful situations even more difficult. Maladaptive coping strategies like emotionally shutting down, perfectionism, critical thinking, alcohol and drug use, self-sabotage and communication breakdowns can increase feelings of isolation and loneliness. Reaching out for help takes strength and courage. Therapy can help you find a way through the barriers that are holding you back.

I am often reminded of how brave it is for someone to pursue counseling. What a vulnerable and courageous thing to do - to ask a stranger for help. It is my greatest privilege and passion to come alongside parents as they endeavor to care the best way they can for the people in their care. My hope as a counselor is to help families find new ways of relating and flourishing together. Many things in life can throw us emotionally off balance. I am here to help you find your footing and provide a safe space while doing so. I want all of my clients (big or small) to walk away feeling connected and delighted in for simply who they are.

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.
