Life can be overwhelming. We face transitions that are difficult and uncertain. We can feel we do not matter and are not needed at times. We yearn for someone to hear us and see us. The moments in your life that seem hard to cope with can become more manageable with the help of a team. Counselors are there to help when life seems like a heavy burden. They can walk alongside you as you experience transitions and face challenges. Serving in my community as a work colleague, school volunteer, and civic organizer for over twenty-five years, I am prepared to help others through the experiences I have faced.

Some times, our world comes crashing down and we struggle to make sense of it. It seems that we are alone and that no one understands. We become overwhelmed by the smallest things and aren't sure where to turn. There comes a time when we all need a little support to make it from one day to the next. That support can come in the form of therapy. While I treat a multitude of mental health issues, I have extensive training in trauma-related treatment and am ready to support you through the hard times to reach your personal goals. In addition to regular business hours, we also have evening and weekend appointments available.

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.
