The past can be painful, but it doesn’t have to stay that way. Healing is one of the most rewarding and beautiful transformations of an individual’s life and it would be an honor to assist you during your journey. While helping others heal others has always been a passion of mine it was my own personal experiences with healing childhood trauma, anxiety, and the foster system that I decided to make it my life’s work. Throughout the healing process, I believe it is imperative to honor your past, listen to your personal experiences, and respect your beliefs to better understand how you make meaning in your world.

Accepting New Clients: Let’s face it relationships are complicated! Whether it is with yourself, your spouse, partner, family, or friends, relationships challenge us on all levels. I explore how emotions, thoughts, and beliefs impact personal well-being and the health of our relationships. My experiences and Christian faith have shaped me to understand that we need healthy emotional connection, and to understand where we are going, we need to know how we arrived at this crossroad. Change begins through the therapeutic relationship built on trust, acceptance, honesty, and emotional connection.

Accepting New Clients- I have a process-oriented approach to counseling, and consider myself an interpersonal counselor. I work toward understanding how family of origin (and other impactful relationships) has played a part in the current and present relationships that exists in the client's world. Within therapy, I like to focus on the process of the relationship the client is having inside the session, which usually mirrors the relationships outside the session.

Our psychological, emotional, and social well being is an important aspect of our overall health. In fact, when our mental health is out of balance it could have a negative impact on our physical health and vice versa. Common factors that affect our mental health include loss of a loved one, medical diagnosis, relational and family issues, difficulty finding life/work balance, job loss or work dissatisfaction, life transitions, and past/current traumatic events. These are part of living and being human. Counseling is one resource that could help you get through these difficult times, to process your feelings and learn coping tools.

Are you struggling in the relationships that are most important to you? Maybe it's the same argument over and over again with your spouse. Or a constant feeling of tension in a relationship with parent, child, or friend. Perhaps it's the inability to move through your emotions which impacts how you relate to yourself, others, or even God. When emotionally distressed, you rely on ingrained ways of coping. These strategies are not always helpful and may lead to feeling stuck, disconnected, or alone. What you want most is a relationship that thrives. There is hope to be connected, known, and loved in your relationships.

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.
