I feel that it is important that each individual find a path to wellness that is comfortable for themselves, as all of our journeys are unique. Life brings challenges and roadblocks which at times require us to seek outside supports. I strive to provide a safe and caring environment for individuals to explore life's difficulties, and receive the respect we all deserve.

I work with adults only and specialize in treatment for chronic pain, trauma/PTSD, and anxiety. I also help with a range of other issues. I especially enjoy supporting clients who have centralized conditions (e.g., fibromyalgia, IBS) and/or autoimmune diseases alongside histories of trauma. Clients often come into therapy with me expressing a desire to more deeply understand themselves and their sense of suffering, and to let go of the burdens they carry. My job in that process is never to fix you or tell you what to do. Rather, it is to support you in discovering your own deep knowing about who you are and what you need.

We all deserve a safe space to understand and take care of our health. Many times a new physical diagnosis is given and treated but a big part of your health is forgotten, your mental health. My approach to your health is holistically. Physical health diagnoses can impact how we feel and interact. We forget that our brain lives inside of our body and to heal we must think about the entire body. Using this lens, I work with those struggling with a new physical diagnosis, mood disorders, trauma, life transitions and family distress. I have also worked with various healthcare workers in navigating burnout and healthcare challenges.

As your therapist: I will not try to fix you, give you advice, tell you what to do, pretend I know you more than you know yourself, assume what is best for you, have all the answers, or make the bad stuff go away. Instead, as your therapist I will: Remind you that you are not broken, give you room to access your own wisdom, support you in figuring out what to do, recognize that you are your own life expert, remember that I do not know what is best for you, honor that I do not know it all, and collaborate with you on how to make the hard stuff easier to sit with.

We talk a lot about what's on our minds, the work our brains are doing, and the moving body as separate parts. But, they are all one unit working together, for better of for worse. Trauma is a good example of these parts working together as one. Our nervous system connects the body/brain/mind and can get stuck working too hard trying to keep us safe. Brainspotting via the eyes, connects with our sub-cortical brains to release trauma held in our whole selves. It gets to the things talking can't get to and reduces unwanted trauma responses. Curious? Come give it a try.

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.
