As an EMDR Certified clinician, I take a different approach to counseling. If you're tired of traditional talk therapy, or want to try EMDR because you've heard others sing its praises, you're in the right place. EMDR is a counseling method that helps people overcome a number of issues including anxiety, self-esteem problems, feeling like an imposter, trying to move on from negative events or trauma and more. Much like the healing that takes place in REM sleep, EMDR heals using eye movements to reprocess the experiences we've had that lead to these concerns so that they sit in the brain differently. And they no longer feel true!

Raising healthy and happy children with ADHD can be a big job, but the good news is that you do not have to do it alone. There is a lot that can be done to help! ADHD is a complex neurodevelopmental condition that impacts each child differently. ADHD has little to do with how "smart" your child might be, but it has a lot to do with your child's ability to regulate their attention, mood, and behaviors. When symptoms of ADHD lead to lower self-esteem, mental health concerns, behavioral challenges, or academic struggles, it is a good time to seek professional help.

Therapy is a place to explore and embrace your story more fully, and my highest value is establishing an authentic, safe, compassionate, and accepting space where you can process what is keeping you "stuck."

Life tends to hand us some unexpected challenges that can catch us off guard, or even knock us off our feet. Grief and loss, trauma, anxiety, depression, life transitions and relational hurts rob us of our peace, leave us feeling anxious, unable to make progress, and can challenge our core identity.

Processing the journey in a safe, supportive, trauma informed, environment sets the foundation for those experiences to make you stronger instead of chipping away at your heart.

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.
