The folks I work with are typically coping with the effects trauma and are wanting to re-process using EMDR. They are typically LGBTQIA+ folks, neuro-divergent, & have varying ways of life. They are people struggling with generalized and social anxiety, Grief, PTSD, or ADHD. In addition to being a counselor, I am also an End of Life Doula so I have knowledge in supporting people who have loved one's at the end of life. I also enjoy working with folks who like to utilize Astrology and Tarot in their therapy journey if it is within their pre-established belief system. Please note that I only see adults 18+.

As an older queer Jewish woman, I love working with other LBGTQ and straight women and men who are ready to make changes in their lives. I understand what it feels like to be hurt by people you love or to be unable to find peace within yourself. So you're in pain or suffer from anger, or shamed, let me help you help yourself. You can learn to regulate your emotions and change the way you think about yourself and interact with others differently. I know this is difficult as I have had to do this too. Let me help you help yourself walk through the pain and get to the other side. It is time to unburden yourself of your secrets.

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.
