Accepting New Clients - has life been more challenging lately or are you having trouble recognizing the person that you have become? Anxiety feels like it is at an all-time high or sadness becoming a familiar feeling? It doesn't have to be. I know you have spent hours or days trying to figure it out, how did I get here, what did I do wrong and what do I do next. It's normal to be overwhelmed or sad at times, but it's not healthy to stay in that space for extended periods of time. If you are looking to improve relationships personally and professionally, looking to improve your quality of life, look no further.

I believe life is a journey, not a destination. Life is a gift. Due to uncertainties, hardships, and even joy, the road on our journey of life is not always smooth. Throughout our travel, we encounter challenges which test our strength, courage, faith, and alliances. I embrace the challenges, examine strengths, as well as give permission to experience the deviations. I value and respect the uniqueness everyone possess. I will work with you to explore healthy ways to manage the stressors along the journey to improve your quality of life. I subscribe to the belief "there are no problems only solutions".

Life is hard, isn't it? I understand that sometimes we can get stuck. We have current or past unresolved trauma, patterns of unhealthy thinking, difficult relationships, and often, we can feel stuck and not even know why. This can leave us feeling hurt, confused, overwhelmed, broken, and without hope. You are not alone. These moments are difficult but there is a way out. There is hope!

Are you exhausted from feeling like you're doing it all by yourself? You don't feel like you can even ask for help. You look at your life and all you see is chaos. You may feel like you're drowning and struggling to keep your head above water. So much has happened in your life leaving you in a place you never thought you'd be. Even the changes that we expect and welcome can leave us feeling overwhelmed and stressed out. You want to feel that you matter in this world and understand your purpose. You may be seeking help to navigate the parts of your life that no else seems to get. I want to help you find stability and confidence.

I believe that the journey to my client’s sense of well-being comes from an integration of work from both mind and body, self-care practices, rediscovering the self-relationship, social connectedness, and creating a life where your values, and a sense of meaning and purpose are your guides to life. There are many reasons you might seek wellness support or psychotherapy. I offer a safe space to explore and talk about your unique life experiences and identify what you want and need from yourself, the world, and others.

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.
