In our sessions, you will learn to be present with and understand patterns, beliefs and emotions and develop an increased ability to cope with stress and challenges. I will introduce you to practices that help you develop the ability to tune in to your inner world so that you can build skills to better regulate and respond to—rather than react to—experiences and avoid going into a flight, fright or freeze response. As you progress in this empowering process of exploration and gain insight into your needs and hopes, you will discover new choices and decisions.

I help teens and adults learn how to observe their unhelpful patterns, and get to the root cause of what blocks them from fulfillment. With compassion, mutual trust, and a little humor, let's transform your life, and finally break out of the unhelpful patterns that have held you back.

Many of us come to therapy disconnected and depleted, confused about who we are and what we want, and unfulfilled in our relationships or work. We hope that therapy will bring us insight, a renewed sense of connection, and resolution to the things we have been struggling with. I strive to be the therapist that I have needed, a guide who could help me navigate my own inner terrain, who could help me make sense of my experiences, learn better ways to cope, to understand and accept myself.

Did you know that trauma effects 70% of the population? It's the silence and the shame that keeps us stuck or oscillating in all areas of life, including financially. Your bank account suffers as much as your mind or your body. Because by age 35 your decisions are a memorized set of patterns, beliefs and behaviors. So you keep doing the same thing over and over and over again. Year after year. Maybe a different context but the outcome is the same. It's exhausting. I bring my 35 years of training from EMDR, gestalt, NLP, Self psychology and a little known discovery called the window of consolidation.

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.
