Grief is an emotion often reserved for the passing of someone meaningful to us, but it’s also a normal emotion in life transitions, like job loss, a ruptured relationship, a move, an accident, the death of a pet, illness, trauma or an empty nest. These experiences may leave you grieving the loss of an idea, an expectation of what your life looked like or where it was going. Loss has a way of isolating a person from others. You may feel pressure to be doing better than you are, or to be further along an arbitrary timeline. Well-intentioned comments that don’t meet you where you are can leave you feeling even more alone.

Currently booking for JULY. I am honored and privileged to join my clients on their journeys. A successful therapy experience is two-sided: a high level of motivation and commitment on your part, along with my experience, expertise and support. My clients tend to be ready and willing to take deep dives inward to explore themselves. Examining perspectives can lead to deeper understanding and thus allow you to make the shifts you desire in all areas of your life, including your relationships. As life is a series of relationships, the relationship between therapist and client(s) is one that can be a springboard for growth.

Are you experiencing difficulties in your family relationships or a relationship with your significant other? Or, are you at a point in your life where you are overwhelmed with conflict, hardships, and other stressors? Life can be a struggle at times, and it can be difficult finding balance on your own. Seeking additional support is the first step in re-authoring your story and creating the life that you want for yourself. With this in mind, I believe that therapy is a collaborative process and should be unique to each client and their needs.

In spite of the myriad of mental health diagnoses used today, the core underlying issues that people struggle with are often more alike than not. They simply manifest in different ways for different people. As a general practitioner for over 25 years, I draw upon information from many areas of psychology, as well as allied spiritual and physical fields, to broaden my understanding of the problems being presented. I feel privileged to work as a therapist, and believe compassion, respect, flexible thinking, and a comprehensive knowledge base, are the keys to any good therapy.

Asking for help shows courage and opens us up to connection and hope. Looking at what is working in your life, while setting specific goals for what you would like to improve upon are the main areas that I focus on with individuals and families. We all have strengths but sometimes day to day life events, worries and stress bury these personal strengths so deep we struggle to access them. Together, using positive psychology and strength based strategies, we will work to uncover the innate qualities that will move you toward a more hopeful and balanced life.

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.
