Parenting has been challenging for a while now. Your child has become defiant, disrespectful, and seems to have anger outbursts most days of the week. You’ve read countless self-help tips on managing your child’s behavior- time outs, rewards, punishments, spankings. These things worked for a couple of weeks, but there have been no long-term results from any of them. You always end up back at square one. Although, you don’t want to admit it, you’ve begun to dislike your child. You feel desperate for a change in your child’s behavior. You also feel hopeless that a change is possible. Is this what parenting is supposed to be like?

I enjoy helping adults, college students, and young adults who experience depression, anxiety, self-harm tendencies/suicidal ideations and adjustment struggles. In the therapy space, I value the importance of having your feelings and experiences validated. When it comes to a typical session with me, we will discuss what is important to you while integrating therapeutic skills you can use outside of our sessions. I am pretty laid back and although I am here to aid you in learning skills and more about yourself, I will lean on you to be the master of your own life.

Is fear or anxiety getting in the way of your child enjoying the things they used to? Maybe it’s taking up so much time that they can’t do the important things- like making friends, going to school, or spending time with loved ones. Your child may fear that they will do something they didn’t mean to or something bad will happen, outside of their control. Perhaps they feel stuck doing the same behavior over and over again to try to find relief, just to find themselves scared and worried again. These experiences can be very painful and isolating, and if it’s your child, very confusing. If this sounds like your child, I'm here to help.

Stress, anxiety and other difficult emotions may be a normal part of life, but they don't have to be in the driver's seat on life's journey. Through my 25+ years of experience as a counselor and my personal experience of having to reclaim the driver's seat from debilitating anxiety/depression, I have learned the truth behind Marcel Proust's claim that "The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes". It is my goal to help people gain new "eyes" through which to view current or past experiences.

People often seek therapy to resolve past experiences and life complexities and the decision to enter therapy may carry feelings of ambivalence and uncertainty. I believe that therapy is most effective when persons are offered an environment that is inviting, attentive, collaborative, affirming, and safe. Subsequently, my goal is to provide a challenging, but non-judgmental and encouraging atmosphere for persons to explore concerns and difficulties as a means of achieving desired change.

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.
