Welcome! I first want to say kudos for seeking out counseling, whether your goal is to work through specific concerns, to better yourself, or just generally stay on top of things. My main priority as a counselor is offer you a safe space to be who you are without worry about judgement and to work through whatever challenges you are facing. You might be struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, addiction or other life changes and challenges. I’m here to meet you where you’re at, to walk with you every step of the way! Everyone is different and as such responds to counseling differently.

Are you looking for a therapy experience that feels...different? You may be noticing patterns in your life—things in your relationships, from your past, or in the way you think or feel that have you feeling stuck. You want to start feeling better day-to-day but you’d also like to get to the deeper roots behind this. You need somewhere that doesn’t feel stuffy, intimidating or overly clinical—a place where you can feel comfortable being honest with someone else and (more importantly) with yourself. Because you know there’s more to life than this cycle you feel caught in and you are ready to discover what that looks like for you.

The only constant in life is change. However, change can often be challenging and painful, leaving us feeling stuck in old patterns. I believe that every individual is capable of change, given the right tools and support. Utilizing a client-centered, humanistic, and trauma-informed approach, I provide the safe, supportive space that my clients need in order to achieve the growth and change that they seek.

If this is your first experience with therapy, you might even feel a bit nervous or apprehensive and I am here to say that’s normal. Therapy is a process that allows you the freedom and privacy to discuss issues that may be sensitive or painful. They may even be difficult to discuss with your family or friends. Through our work together, you will be validated and can begin to feel more at home within yourself.

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.
