Be confident in who you are and the way you look. There are many issues women and girls struggle with today as the pressures in our society increase. Trying to look perfect and confident every day or attempting to balance work and family without missing a beat, can often lead to feelings of failure, insecurity and inadequacy. Taking the time to learn effective ways to feel good and manage your stress levels is the key to a happier and more fulfilling life.

I research the relationship between play and identity and have published on female development, mother/daughter relationships, and transgender adolescents.
I see psychotherapy as a journey in which two individuals, therapist and patient, co-create the story of the patient's life. In doing so, together they connect disconnected parts of the self, acknowledge and resolve internal conflicts, work through old losses, and discover new options for leading a more purposeful and meaningful life.

These are anxious times that we live in. With each day, we are bombarded with so many unavoidable triggers. Your anxiety may have just begun, or like so many of us, intensified along with panic attacks and periods of depression. Your struggle is real and normal and I can help. I offer therapy that is a combination of talk therapy and the teaching of tangible tools. My goal is to help you manage triggers, reduce your symptoms and improve your day to day living. Believe it or not, you already have the skills to get yourself back on track. It's not magic. It's about mindset, empathy (for yourself) and having a safe, co-collaborator.

You know that feeling of disconnection between your head and your heart? When you're struggling and know that the feedback you're getting from trusted loved ones is logical, but for some reason it just isn't making you feel better? If you could just "think" or "do" your way out of pain, you probably wouldn't be here. Emotions always show up for good reason - even when they don't seem to fit. God created the spectrum of emotions to be felt, seen, heard, and understood. When we don't have a safe place to explore them, they get ignored, buried, stuck, and confusing, and they can no longer do their job. This creates disconnection.

Therapy is successful when there is a good "fit" between client and therapist. The therapy "works" when the client feels that the therapist understands them and demonstrates the ability to help them improve their lives. With more than 25 years of experience with individuals,couples,families and groups, I offer an approach tailored to the uniqueness of each individual person and the issues unique to them.

It has been my privilege for the last 30 years in assisting my clients in resolving a variety of challenges - anxiety, depression, unresolved grief, unresolved trauma (both childhood and adult), marital problems and divorce recovery. Often when faulty learning (i.e., Stinkin' Thinkin') results from traumatic events or unhealthy relationships, effective help requires applying psychological, social and spiritual resources.

People usually seek therapy during times of great stress, when their lives feel out of control, or when they are increasingly anxious or depressed, or when they feel stuck or dissatisfied, and are looking for change. My goal is to provide you a safe, non-judgmental atmosphere that will help you express yourself, explore and clarify your feelings, understand yourself and others, find options, and make changes in your life. I view psychotherapy as an active collaboration and seek to create a welcoming and comfortable base of strengthening support.

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.
