Are you feeling overwhelmed, in a “funk,” lonely, or out-of-sorts? Do you feel you have to put on a face to show that you have it all together? Do you feel sadness or anxiety from past experiences or current events? Maybe it's hard even to pinpoint. It can be hard to ask for help, but coming here is a significant first step toward living a fuller, happier life. As a therapist, my goal is to provide a space where you can feel understood, supported, and empowered. I truly believe that effective therapy is grounded in a genuine and collaborative relationship between the client and therapist.

Are you the one in your family/circle who has "made it" and now you have become the exhausted rescuer for the people you care about? Are there relationships in your present or past that need to be put to rest so they can stop showing up in your thought life? Have you realized some emotional triggers but not sure what to do next? Are you tired of feeling emotionally overwhelmed? Wouldn't it help to have a place you can go to process how to create healthier expectations? Would it help to have a confidential place to figure out how to work through stress without having to babysit someone else's response?

Making the decision to seek counseling can be a tough one for many. Therapy is a process where you can learn, grow, and heal in ways you did not expect. Do you feel you struggle to be your true authentic self in the spaces that you occupy? Finding it hard to create and maintain boundaries with those closest to you? Maybe your own thoughts and feelings of stress and anxiety are hindering you from reaching what you feel is your full potential? My goal, as your therapist, is to help guide you through this process of self-discovery and healing.

Ever feel like you're constantly juggling everyone else's needs, saying "yes" even when you're exhausted? This relentless "good girl" act leaves you drained and resentful like you're living in someone else's story. On top of that, your mind replays past situations on a loop. You constantly worry: Will I ever feel "good enough?" Why am I so drawn to relationships that leave me drained? How do I clear these blocks holding me back? Past experiences might have made you feel like you had to be perfect or prove yourself worthy of love. This disconnect between the life you've built and the one you crave is a powerful signal.

We often come to a crossroads in our lives, a time when staying where we are is no longer sustainable, yet we are not clear on how to do something different, or how to start down a new path. Many of us learned early on to only show aspects of ourselves that were “acceptable;” we learned which traits earned us love and cultivated those, but relinquished many others. Healing is a journey back to ourselves, a journey back our essence and back to who we were before we learned we were not enough.

My personal philosophy of healing is not standardized. Growth comes from a place of vulnerability and courage to face difficult truths and clients will learn and grow through a strong and trusting therapeutic relationship. Acceptance of all parts of ourselves is fundamental in therapy and I believe change requires a willingness to transfer negative energy out in order to make room for our ideal selves. The therapeutic process will provide a space for clients to discover their needs and the best way to meet them. My hope is that you gain a difference in perspective that serves you and provides a basis for unconditional acceptance.

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.
