Often we know that we want to make changes in our lives but don't know how or where to start. As a therapist I try to take the intimidation out of therapy by creating a trusting and mutually respectful relationship. I feel that the therapist client relationship is a partnership and my goal it to help you become empowered to navigate the challenges in life. I work with you to identify the issues, set specific goals and develop coping mechanisms to help you improve your life.

Life can be challenging. And right now, in the day to day, it seems even harder. Are you having trouble figuring out where to go next? You are not alone. Many people hesitate to get started with counseling because taking that first step can be hard. Yet, feeling stuck in life or continuing in a dysfunctional situation is much harder. Today is a good day to start in a different direction with a more hopeful future.

Your life doesn’t look like everyone else’s. Maybe your relationships are different, or your job isn't a normal 9-5, or you’re a little too “woo” for everyone else. You find yourself holding back from sharing in a group because you’re tired of getting “the look” from others. At night, you may lay in bed feeling all alone and like no one will ever understand you.

Anxiety can make you feel stuck, but there is hope that you can feel better. We all experience stressors that show up in our life in different ways including: anxiety, depression, anger, fear, unhappiness, unfulfilling relationships, conflict, or emotional pain. My passion is working with individuals to better manage their anxiety, fears and anger. How different would life be if you were able to learn new ways to work with your anxiety instead of trying to "eliminate" anxious thoughts and feelings completely? You can learn and apply practical strategies that help you tolerate the ups and downs of life.

Currently, I am not accepting new clients & referring to therapists, at the same practice, Jane Williams and Kytaina Gabriel. Are you tired of being a prisoner to your own negative thoughts, trying everything to ease your sadness and frustration, but feel like you are going in circles? Maybe you've tried self-help books, talking to friends, staying busy, but to no avail. Have you gone through something recently or in the past, which was traumatic, where you felt keeping to yourself was safest, & doing whatever you could to not get hurt again? Maybe you feel unsure about the world, anxious, unmotivated, and don't know why.

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.
