Life, without any major disruptions, is stressful enough; however almost everyone experiences times that are especially difficult. Oftentimes, people find themselves getting lost, anxious, or frustrated during these times, and can develop problematic ways of coping because they don't know what else to do. This is understandable. When a person is in emotional pain, it is hard to be rational and think of a good solution. I'd like to help. Through therapy, you can get caring support and new solutions to problems that will help you build the fulfilling life you deserve- where a sense of peace is possible.

I believe that it is important to find a therapist that is a good fit for you. There are many wonderful therapists, but it is important for you to feel that you are understood, supported, and sometimes gently challenged by your therapist. I will ask you to identify what you want help with or what you are feeling distress around and then will actively work with you toward your goals.

I work with individuals and couples who are adjusting to a change in their life or find themselves "stuck" in patterns of behaviors or moods that disturb them. Examples include relationship stress, anxiety, depression, family of origin issues and addiction/abuse concerns. Some times this is a result of a loss of a loved one, a change in relationship status or employment status. Sometimes the cause is not apparent.

I often hear: "If only we could communicate better, the simplest of discussions become arguments." "I had an affair, I was so stupid, can you help me to heal my relationship?" "My spouse had an affair, I am devastated, I don't know if I should leave or stay?" "I told my spouse everything and the affair is over, why can't we just move on?"

Are you afraid to trust yourself and others? Do you feel isolated, unconnected and lonely? Life is filled with challenges and situations that overwhelm us. Our emotional lives can become confusing, and our experiences can trap us into patterns of beliefs and behaviors that diminish our powers.

I believe that therapy begins with hope. This means that change is possible and you are not stuck. I desire to both help you maintain hope and support the change process. I believe that you are capable, resilient, and worthy. This means that I operate from a strengths-based and solution-focused perspective. While it is helpful to determine the true challenge, we often tend to fixate on problems that we lose sight of the strengths and possible solutions that can help us navigate trials life brings. This also means that I desire to understand and connect with you in a way that helps you see yourself as capable and worthy.

I am passionate to work with those who have a strong desire to seek freedom from the negative impacts in the cycle of abuse and trauma. Many of my clients describe themselves as those who live with complex trauma, meaning they have experienced a number of compounding traumas throughout their lives. My goal is to create safety for my clients as they process their story while being met with compassion and strength to move forward into healing. Due to my previous career in crisis response I also find honor in supporting those who have experienced secondary trauma by way of first responder, service provider, or helper.

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.
