Being human is tough. Add in complicated relationships, work stress, traumatic experiences, jarring changes, loss (just to name a few) - of course you’re seeking support. You wake up feeling the pain of the past. The experiences contributing to your current struggle are in the past, but you’re still dealing with the aftershock and you're left feeling stuck and helpless. You can’t change the past, but it can continue to affect you and your future - for better or for worse. Looking for the good news yet? I believe that choice is within your control. The changes you desire are possible! You're not alone and you're in the right place.

We have therapists (Licensed, Associates and Graduate Students Interns) who specialize in different age groups (teens, young adults, middle age, and elderly), constellations (individual therapy, couples therapy, family therapy), and targets (pastors & missionaries, EMDR, affair recovery, blended families, veterans, grief & loss, etc.). If a client requests to incorporate Christian spirituality into counseling, our therapists are well trained to do so. However, we are incredibly respectful of our clients’ faith beliefs, including those who profess faith and those who do not.

Becoming a mother can be one of the most beautiful transitions in your life while also being one of the most challenging times you may ever face. No one can prepare you for what it means to be a parent. Everything from feelings of shame, guilt, and inadequacy to sleep deprivation and hormonal changes can turn this beautiful life transition into a state of isolation and loneliness. Even though there are thousands of people becoming new parents everyday, it can feel like you are completely alone, isolated even from those that love you the most.

Do you have difficulty maintaining focus and a piece of mind? Are you someone who appears to have it all together, but still find yourself experiencing unpredictable emotions, bouts of anxiety and depression that have strained your relationships? Do you have an internal fear that you will be exposed as broken? Trauma serves as a filter, a lens through which a person views the world. Everything is shaded differently. It can have you feeling like “What’s wrong with me?” and “I’ll never feel at home with myself” or “Why does life have to be this hard?”. So now you’re ready to make a change. You’re ready to feel relief.

You may appear to have it all together to those around you, but internally you are struggling not to fall apart. You have a hard time balancing everything that is going on in your life and feel overwhelmed. Depression and anxiety are normal for you, but recently you feel they have been controlling your day to day. You're noticing patterns that you can't seem to break out of on your own. You know that it can get better, what you’ve been doing isn’t working. You’re tired of feeling stuck and you are motivated to learn how to love yourself, how to cope with daily struggles, and how to unlearn and change what you experienced growing up.

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.
