Client's who work best with me are often not the clients who know exactly what they want or need in therapy, though that can be very helpful. Often they are simply people who recognise a need for help and are willing to engage in the process. You can go to any competent clinician and they should be able to support you with basic skills. What I draw out of people is not only what they want and need, but their strengths and special aspects that make them who they are in order to work through to a point where they can make healthy choice and live their "best life."

There is so much excitement around babies. From the sound of soft baby coos to the warm cuddles right before a nap. Ideally, babies are fun, but new parenthood can be overwhelming, scary, and anxiety provoking. That’s something we don’t talk about enough. From brain fog, not feeling like yourself, body betrayals, feeling out of place, shifts in relationships, grief, exhaustion all the way to isolation, there is so much that can come up in the journey to parenthood. You want to feel balanced, and enjoy yourself again. You want your body to do what it’s supposed to. You want to feel heard, seen, and connected.

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.
