Are your reactions to stress and the people you love hard to manage? Do you relate to media postings and self-help books but don't know how to translate awareness into change? We all have “triggers” developed from experiences and develop adaptive modes of behavior that may not be effective or beneficial to our well being. Exaggerated reactions such as becoming numb, shut down or reactive, the need to fight, the experience of shame, the need for inaction or escape (avoidance), or the loss of our ability to communicate are typical responses to feeling triggered and can feel overwhelming and leave you feeling out of control.

Most of us struggle at times. When the struggle lingers, or when significant or traumatic events impede us from functioning as well as we want to, therapy can help. Most of my clients are wrestling with a combination of anxiety, depression, relationship problems, or the impact of traumatic events. Some are struggling to identify what is most important or meaningful in life. Others are clear about their values and goals, but struggle with barriers of fear, avoidance, or doubt. In therapy, I aim to provide a sense of acceptance, understanding, and challenge to help you make the changes you want for yourself.

My role as a therapist is that of a fellow-human that joins you on this chapter of your journey. Think of us together on a walk. On our walk, we encounter the natural elements that both slow us down with fatigue and overwhelm, and also motivate us with inspiration and delight. What makes this journey bearable, do-able, and sometimes even fun is that we are together. You are not alone. The safety I intend to cultivate for you provides the atmosphere for inquiry, exploration, curiosity, and growth.

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.
