Deciding to seek therapy is a positive step in your journey. At times through the counseling process there could be emotional discomfort due to remembering unpleasant events. The outcome of your treatment tremendously depends on your willingness to engage in the process. There are no miracle cures and specific results are not guaranteed. I cannot promise that your behavior or circumstances will change. I can promise to support you and do my very best to understand your needs.

I am here to help those struggling with unprocessed grief over trauma, abuse, and toxic home environments. Unprocessed grief often plays out in life through symptoms of codependence, relationship issues, anxiety/depression, and addiction that hinder us from living in freedom.

My clients express honest problems and appreciate respect, practical tools, and compassion in generating options. They are patient with the process but value a timely and efficient treatment plan outlining our goals. Trust is a must in every session as we move past crisis to changing areas over time.

I have been in practice for many years focusing on using techniques like EMDR and hypnosis that help my clients move through their issues more quickly than using talk therapy alone. Anxiety is one of my specialties. It is often connected with depression, grief, and addictions. Those are also areas I have a great many years of experience in working with. I have recently become a Medicare provider because I can relate to the many issues that come with aging.

Everyday life, in addition to recent stressors, can weigh heavily on our shoulders and we may not realize how it is affecting us until our body starts reacting. If you are feeling overwhelmed, less motivated to do activities you once enjoyed, are lashing out at people you love, come talk to me. You are not alone. These are just a few of the common feelings of a larger issue. I can help you process them and develop a plan for a brighter tomorrow.

You don't have to suffer in siIence anymore. In our fast changing world, finding balance can be difficult and may even seem impossible at times. Feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, and the thoughts of giving up make it hard to push forward when you have conflicting goals, objectives, and situations in your life. They can seem to happen all at once, and it feels like they are all demanding our energy, thoughts, and immediate choices in order to progress and change. Anxious or depressing thoughts and feelings accompany the trying times of life, and therapy can be a way to get yourself and/or your family up to optimal functioning.

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.
