I am committed to helping people resolve whatever issues they may bring to counseling. Together, we may journey into the past or stay firmly rooted in the present, confronting & transforming old behaviors, memories, or areas of less than optimal functioning. Since no one technique serves all, I offer a multidisciplinary approach. I often employ the expressive arts and an environmental connection with the spiritual, when appropriate and suitable for each of my individual clients. This results in a greater vitality, creativity, satisfaction, self-knowledge, clarity of expression, and holistic healing for most people.

We live in a world where our society encourages us to live fast, big, and do it all and THAT. GETS. HEAVY. We can only do so much before we feel stressed, overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, and like we're drowning in the pressures of expectation. Do you find it hard to work full time, manage things at home, balance social life, do the things that bring you joy, and feel good? It's time to heal, find yourself again, and take back control. You don't have to suffer in silence and you don't have to shoulder it alone. I'm so glad you've found me. Together, let's find the way to you again.

Effective therapy requires a dynamic approach which is unique to every individual. Therapy should not be a "one size fits all" model. Gaining insight and having a deeper understanding of how your biological, sociological and psychological makeup (from birth to present day) has impacted you and how you specifically operate in this world can provide growth and change in many different areas of life. Having the ability to identify where our specific thoughts, beliefs, feelings, emotions, perceptions and patterns stem from and can significantly reduce areas that are impairing your overall quality of everyday life.

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.
