As a therapist, I recognize the importance that therapy has in providing a space for people to process their thoughts, feeling, and struggles in a confidential and safe environment. Therapy can be especially helpful to those who are seeking an opportunity to better understand their personal situation, symptoms and strategize ways to overcome them.

My therapeutic approach is person-centered. I firmly believe that people have innate strengths and the capability to grow and change, as they desire. I believe in building resilience through harnessing that strength, learning positive coping strategies, and providing time and space for growth and healing. I have a broad range of experience with a varied age range; I have worked across the developmental spectrum, from young children to adults. My therapy experience includes: anxiety, depression, perinatal support, grief, parenting, trauma, play therapy strategies; life changes; and self-esteem.

Do you have past trauma that you still carry around despite your best efforts to cope? This trauma could be a single event, years of smaller incidents, a negative self- statement that's been with you forever, or a loss of some kind. Sometimes talk therapy doesn't actually solve the core issue and you continue to have overwhelming feelings when it comes up for you. I use a combination of EMDR and Brainspotting to work on these core issues. This can be done as a stand-alone therapy or as an adjunct to talk therapy.

I have been working as a therapist and clinical supervisor for more than thirty years. I love helping people discover their hidden skills, strengths and values which may have become lost in life’s struggles. Whatever the issue, my job is to assist you in realizing you have the capacity to untangle and manage whatever brings you to my office. My approach involves separating the person from the problem; helping people manage the kinds of negative thoughts we all have which can increase stress, tell us bad things about ourselves, or convince us to do things that are not in our best interest.

Are you stressed out, overwhelmed, struggling in relationships, and unsure what to do next? You wonder, "where do I go from here.” You want something better for yourself but don't know what to do or how to get there. I work with adults who are struggling with substances, or in recovery, and their families to manage stress, control their emotions, and find purpose & peace. Trying to navigate the waters of recovery alone can be a recipe for disaster; at worst it means relapse, at best it means a life of being restless, irritable, and discontent.

Overthinking? You can't seem to quiet all the thoughts in your head. You keep replaying different scenarios. You analyze what you could have done differently. Some days you can barely get out of bed. The guilt is eating you up inside. You feel isolated and lonely and it's hard to face anyone. You feel unsatisfied in your relationships. There is so much you need to get done but you feel stuck and unmotivated. You lie awake at night overthinking. You wake up feeling hopeless, unsure how you can get through the day.

The sexual part of your life is not where you want it to be and you are desperate for change. You and your partner are worried that something might be wrong with you or your relationship. You don’t know where to go for help. This sexual issue is keeping you from being happy and you and/or your partner are depressed and anxious all the time. You think about this all the time. You feel like you don’t know enough about sex and you certainly don’t know how to solve this problem, even though you have tried. No one taught you how to have a healthy and positive sexual identity, so how are you supposed to know how to fix this?

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.
