Most people get up everyday with the intention to do and feel their best. Clients typically come in to see me when something is getting in the way of allowing this to happen. Whether the obstacle is emotional, relational, behavioral, or motivational, I work interactively with my clients to understand the underlying problem and help them seek alternative methods or solutions toward reaching their goals. Change requires understanding, validation, and trust. I work very hard to establish these with every client I meet.

I firmly believe that you know yourself better than anyone in this world. You live your life, feel your feelings, and encounter your consequences that feel both positive and negative. Often times there is a dilemma within oneself when it comes to the idea of change. We tend to lean towards old familiar belief systems even if those beliefs no longer offer us what we want in our lives. In order to change, we need momentum, and sometimes we just need a little help to get us started. That is exactly what our work will touch on.

As a licensed therapist my goal is to make the counseling process one of comfort and growth. I understand that it isn't easy to make change, and it can be both difficult and painful to address an issue that is truly weighing you down. I believe in a holistic approach to counseling and am also trained in many evidence based techniques. At this time I am unable to accept new clients who require weekend or evening hours.

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.
