Past trauma and sexuality struggles seem to be more common that most people believe. Many of us have experienced trauma (and/or sexual trauma) in our past...it is time to escape from that prison. We need more therapists trained to handle these struggles. As a sex-positive therapist I can help you grow and thrive in your chosen environment as you navigate the shifts and transitions we all experience in this life. I also supervise new therapists as they gain experience in this helping profession

My focus is to serve youth and adults through life transitions. I additionally, love working with couples in any stage of their relationship (premarital, committed, or married). I employ a multi-generational approach and strongly believe that the family you were born into effects the person you are today. I also recognize that culture and heritage play into how you create meaning, which is why I take every opportunity to honor this part of individuals, as it is an important part of my identity.

In my years of work specializing in children and parents contending with anger, anxiety, depression, foster-care, parenting struggles and divorce issues I have helped families find healing and recover fun in their relationships.

Hi and welcome! I’m glad you stopped by to learn a little bit more about my practice. The majority of client’s I work with are individuals who struggle with high levels of anxiety perfectionism and relationship challenges. I commonly hear things like I can’t stop thinking about this thing(s) it distracts me at work and keeps me up at night. Some experience a lot of fear and worry around socializing being in public and other things that cause high distress. Many describe coming to a place where anxiety controlled how they showed up in life including their relationship with themselves and others. Anxiety is common so you're not alone!

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.
