I also have a passion for women's issues , including stress management, trauma and abuse recovery.
Sometimes life hands us more than we can deal with on our own. Responses to difficult life experiences, stress, and traumatic events can show up differently in all of us. Whether it be emotional or behavioral concerns in your child or adolescent, or stress, burnout and relationship issues in adulthood, together we will explore the challenges faced and identify a path forward. By supporting clients in understanding their reactions and building skills and confidence in their ability to cope with difficult circumstances and emotions, living a fulfilled life and reaching your full potential is possible.

My specialty areas include women's issues and helping adolescents and young adults develop a healthier sense of who they are, couples counseling and working with families and family dynamics.
Psychotherapy offers the opportunity to work toward feeling better about yourself and your relationships. In session you have the opportunity to discuss your concerns in a safe, caring, and supportive setting. I use an active approach to help you identify patterns of thoughts and behaviors that are not working and help you develop new patterns that can lead to reduced distress and improve your relationships. Many people I work with come with depression, eating disorders, anxiety and relationship or marital issues. Others come to talk about parenting concerns, family issues or adjustment to life changes and stresses.

All people have the potential to change, grow and find meaning. Trauma and grief can interfere with this process and cause you to feel stuck. Many challenges that bring people into therapy (for example, relationship issues, depression and anxiety), have their roots in unresolved trauma and grief. As an EMDR therapist, I will help you identify these connections and activate your brain’s own natural ability to heal. EMDR goes beyond the insight sought in traditional talk therapy. By resolving the underlying issues contributing to your problems on a deep, emotional level, we will bring about significant and lasting change.

When our children hurt, we hurt. Teaching young children, adolescents and young adults coping skills that they will use for a lifetime is a wonderful gift for the entire family. Adult women experience a tremendous amount of stress. Habitual behaviors or ways of thinking that served us as children are often of no use and even harmful during adulthood. Feeling better requires challenging these old habits and creating new pathways to suit our current goals.

***All clients are remote.*** Anxiety and depression affect so many of us every day. Spiraling thoughts, racing heartbeat, inability to sleep, feeling withdrawn at social events--these are just a few examples of how our anxiety gets in the way of our enjoyment and ability to live our lives. Anxiety and depression also increase our stress level and may prevent us from having healthy interactions with coworkers, friends, family members. Think of it this way: if our mind has us focused on the past or the future, how can we enjoy our present relationships??

Pregnant, postpartum, or parent of littles? Navigating the challenges of parenthood is not always made easier by the joys. Maybe you’re here as a mom struggling with all of the adjustments postpartum, you’re a dad feeling more irritable than you’d like, you’re crying or worrying a lot, having difficulty bonding with your baby, missing your independence, finding it hard to make time for your own needs, experienced a loss or scary birth, or you don't feel like yourself as an expectant parent, a new parent, or an experienced parent. We tend to have many expectations about parenthood and need help adjusting when things don’t go to plan.

People seek out therapy for a variety of reasons, such as to address an already identified concern, to develop a particular coping skill set, or to enhance self-confidence and quality of life. I work to establish a trusting therapeutic relationship within which a client can share their unique story with a felt sense of validation, empathy, and hope. I work collaboratively with clients as we bare witness to the client's lived experiences looking through a lens of compassionate curiosity and establishing empowered self-agency that leads to patterns of intentional action and overall well-being.

Whether moving from one life phase to another or one culture to another or one job to another, learning new roles or assuming new career can be difficult and lonely. It can feel like nobody really understands what you're going through. You want more from your future but you aren't sure where to start. You feel like you're facing your problems or new experiences alone and like you have no place. You're nervous. You feel overwhelmed. Your world has been shaken and you don't know how to survive in this one. You just want some peace- where you can be yourself, Wherever that is.

Women's Issues Therapists

How do you encourage a woman to go to therapy?

It’s helpful to express concern and love for the person while framing therapy as a tool for improving their life. Offering specific examples of how an individual may be suffering, and what effects it has on them, should be done with compassion and with empathy. It may be useful to devise a game plan—breaking the process down into parts, such as finding a therapist, making appointments, and looking into insurance coverage.

How can women prepare for therapy?

Women can prepare for therapy by being willing to talk about their past experiences and their private thoughts. Before a session, an individual may want to reflect on how they’ve felt since the last session and what’s happened in their lives. Between sessions, it can be useful to write down notes about their reaction to a given event or how they felt at a particular time.

How long does therapy for women’s issues often last?

As with any type of therapy, sessions depend on the individual and the challenges they face. Therapy types like Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Prolonged exposure therapy (PET), and Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) can be brief, most often ranging from between 5 and 20 sessions. In some cases, such as for women with eating disorders, residential treatment may be recommended for an individual who is judged to be at high risk of self-harm. For any therapy, the duration will depend on the progress made and results realized.

How can women overcome stigma around specific challenges in order to seek therapy?

Women dealing with domestic abuse, sexual assault, eating disorders, and any other number of troubles may feel a stigma around seeking help. It’s important to remember that these issues are not uncommon and there is no shame in getting help for them. Therapy is confidential, and women can talk about their experiences without fear of judgment. Seeking therapy can be a courageous and liberating act, and an important step toward healing and recovery.
