One of the things life has taught me is to not believe everything you think because our mind can really play tricks on us. There is hope even when you think there is none. There are solutions even when you cannot see them, because you have more power than you know.

You find yourself operating on autopilot most days - perhaps you're still getting things done, but not connecting to meaning, purpose, or your authentic self. Perhaps life is getting the best of you and you can't seem to come out on top any longer. It may be that anxiety attacks or panic dot the landscape of your life, or that you're feeling the steady creep of depression. Unwanted memories from the past may be taking their toll. You're ready to live a connected, joyful, authentic life, free from the fog of whatever might be holding you back.

I once read a social media post that said," If you can't see the light at the end of the tunnel, I will sit with you in the dark." Life happens and not always in a positive way. Even good days can be stressful. I do not promise to "fix you," but I do promise to help you heal and get back to life as it was meant to be. Some days, you don't feel like talking, that is okay, we can sit and do whatever you need. Everyone heals differently. What is important is that you heal your way and know you are not alone. It is important to love yourself so that others can also love you.

I understand that making the decision to enter therapy is not always easy. Some therapists take on the role of identifying what is "wrong" with a client or how the client needs to be "fixed." I view my role as your therapist as helping you identify and utilize the healthy coping skills you already have to resolve issues. The answers are there, and I appreciate that you are more familiar with the issues than anyone else. I will work with you to reveal the path and help you get the obstacles out of the way, including the many ways we can be our own worst enemy.

Greetings! My name is Kay C Free, and I am here to help you on your journey to wellness. Life on life's terms can be challenging at best. Experiencing life's hardships, whether current or past, grief, anxiety, depression, relationships, trauma or drug/alcohol struggles, can only add to those challenges. I believe, however, that everyone has the capacity to move beyond those challenges and experience strong, healthy lives and relationships! Taking the first step toward seeking help is often the hardest part of the journey but seeking in itself shows inner strength and the capacity for resilience.

Although we often come to therapy with a problem, we also come to be heard and understood, to feel like we matter, and to learn self-compassion. Do you feel overly nervous at times and held back from things you want to do or goals you would like to accomplish? Find yourself over-estimating the odds of something "wrong" possibly happening or assuming worst-case scenario outcomes? There are methods that can be learned to decrease intensity, frequency, and duration of anxiety episodes. I look forward to helping you develop calming skills and replace unhelpful thought patterns with less anxiety producing ones.

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.
