We all experience difficulties, and at times it can be tough to sort through our thoughts and feelings alone. I believe that we all have patterns of reactions that arise in our thoughts and behaviors. Some of these patterns may be healthy and some unhealthy. I like to think of the therapeutic environment as a safe place to sort through what makes us, “us”. Within this environment we hope to become more aware of our patterns and decision making. With increased awareness we can make the decisions on what continues to work for us and what no longer serves us well.

I believe that YOU, a parent or caregiver, have been doing the very best that you can for your child.

If you’ve exhausted a list of ideas to help your child with little progress, let me join you. Together we can redistribute that emotional weight you’re carrying and give your child a big wide space to heal and grow.

Through the lens of Bowen Systems Theory I work towards providing insight and awareness into the emotional process that we often find ourselves intensely reacting from. Building on that insight and awareness, decreasing the emotional reactivity while increasing calmer and more rational choices. Looking at our emotional patterns to better understand them allows us then to think in a way that can provide an openness to making different choices. To know better is to do better! To understand why we react to our situations and where those patterns have been learned, we can then start to look at each new moment as it’s own.

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.
