Individuals/Groups. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. Life happens, so it helps to have someone who will really listen, without judgement. When we lay down our burdens, we can feel lighter, heal places that were hurt, and find a way back to ourselves. Therapy can be about coming to deeply know and understand ourselves; with help learning skills for managing life, emotions and relationships, claiming self-worth and a sense of competence. I specialize in supporting people with holistic, research based psychotherapy. ACT, IFS, ARC, DBT, Somatics, CBT and Jungian components. Dating, Anxiety and Parenting Groups.

I really appreciate clients who are willing to look at themselves and are brave enough to ask for help. Asking for help shows a desire to understand themselves on a deeper more spiritual level. I work with people going through transitions in life ages 4-94. It doesn't matter the age, it is the heart behind the age that counts. I work with individuals, family, couples, and those working on addictions issues that are facing crossroads in their life. Therapy gives hope and renewed vision and allows support to those facing the fear of change.

After 14 years of a cash-only private practice as a Life Coach, Holistic Health Practitioner, and Medical Intuitive, I can now sustainably work as a therapist with those who cannot afford care without insurance. Having worked with clients who live in 9 different countries, I found that almost all psychological and relationship issues are the result of acute or chronic violations of free will, free speech, informed consent, and self-governance as a unique yet interconnected individual. The impairment of willpower appears to be made worse by external motivators and addictive substances or behaviors in the long-run.

There are a lot of people who look like ducks on a pond, gliding along smoothly and effortlessly. These people have respectable jobs and get feedback that they are doing them well. Their kids are kind, their houses tasteful, their bank accounts solid. But if you are one of those ducks you know that secretly you are paddling for your life, just trying to keep up. You are waiting for everyone else to see that you are a fraud, that you don’t belong, that you have no idea what you are doing. You get caught up in self-doubt and worry, feel unsure of your purpose or value, and are exhausted from overthinking absolutely everything.

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.
