In our lives, we find ourselves caught in the whirlwind of expectations, deadlines, and the relentless pursuit of success. We are the Burnout Generation, a cohort not defined by our failures but by the resilience forged in the fires of overwhelming demands. In a world that constantly asks for more, we have shouldered burdens that previous generations might not comprehend. The pressure to excel and to meet societal standards has become our daily battle. How are we supposed to know what healthy looks like or what the process is to achieve this?

Good therapy has the power to turn our deepest struggles into opportunities for lifelong growth and happiness. The therapeutic relationship offers a safe and trusting space that is all one’s own; a unique place to express and notice feelings more clearly and to respond with more equanimity and mindfulness. In time, this ability will lead to a greater sense of wellbeing, gratitude and self-love.

Therapy is about you! It is only natural for humans to want to understand why they feel the way they do; desiring to connect with their experiences. Therapy is the personal process of helping us grow in understanding ourselves, our relationships, and our history. Everyone has their own story to tell. With therapy we can begin that journey of discovery, helping to uncover parts of our personal stories that may have felt very disconnected for a long time.

As a psychotherapist, I know that all humans have ups and downs and that life is not always easy. If you find yourself feeling anxious and stressed out often, not able to enjoy life’s little moments, needing support with a big change or you have a general feeling of being stuck, therapy with me could be right for you. I recognize how important talk-therapy can be as I have experienced these all too common situations myself. I believe when seeking out a therapist, being able to relate is a key factor in success.

You know the type of therapists they show on TV or in the movies? The therapists who only ask you, “how does that make you feel?” and only speak in dull voices that would make anyone fall asleep? I can assure you – I am definitely not that type of therapist! I am personable, genuine, and laid-back. My style is warm and depth-oriented. I think it is essential to offer a space where you can feel safe to be honest about what is happening in your life. Whether you’re dealing with relationship issues, anxiety, depression or struggling with a life transition, it is the relationship between you and me that leads to insight and healing.

Not accepting new patients. It takes courage to seek help and I admire you for taking this step. Anxiety is a normal emotion while trying to conceive, pregnant or postpartum, but at times we can become paralyzed in fear, hooked on our thoughts, and struggle with uncertainty.

In our work together you will grow, heal, and learn to implement skills which will help you live a life that is meaningful to you. My specialties including maternal anxiety/depression, infertility, OCD, and perfectionism.

Life can be difficult. When those around us invalidate our feelings, tell us "if only we would do this" we would feel better, try to "jolly us" out of it, or do anything to try and change who we are in this moment and what we are feeling, we feel unseen, unheard, and incredibly alone. You are not alone. This moment will pass, you can learn and grow through it, and because of these moments you can become someone you never even imagined. Someone beyond your current wildest dreams full of strength, wisdom, and courage. And sometimes you need someone to walk that path with you, to help you find yourself.

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.
