Do you feel like your life is on a constant cycle of wake up, do the things, go to bed, repeat? Has this left you feeling like you aren't really living your life to the fullest? Do you worry that there is something that you are missing about how to really feel alive? Have you felt like you are "just going through the motions"? Have you tried counseling before and did not feel like it was as helpful as you hoped it would be? I understand. I see mental health differently. I want to help people feel like they are really living their lives to their fullest potential, not just solving some symptoms.

Chronic stress, life changes, loss, trauma, illness, or relational problems can cause coping difficulties that impact quality of life. Although time alone can sometimes help, meaningful resolution of the problems and real growth takes place within the context of a supportive relationship. It is within a nurturing relationship that individuals heal and grow.

Waitlist for new clients
It can be so painful when old limiting patterns keep us from experiencing the life we want. The question arises: what keeps these patterns locked in place despite our best efforts to change them? Most often it turns out there are hidden parts of us actively thwarting our efforts to change because of old outdated notions about what keeps us safe in the world. Trying to white-knuckle our way past this inner opposition may be tempting, but tends not to work in the long run. Paradoxically, the real solution lies in befriending these parts who are seemingly hell-bent on maintaining an unwanted status quo.

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.
