After over 25 years in private practice (see www.JeanPollock.com ) I currently work with adult individuals using a fairly integrative approach. Of particular expertise are depression, anxiety, & childhood trauma and its manifestations in the body. More important than the particular issue, however, is my belief that times of stress in our lives -and even times that might seem particularly hopeless- can serve as opportunities for increased understanding and growth. Psychotherapy with a "seasoned" clinician can be a fascinating and effective tool to facilitate that transformation and growth.

Life is messy, beautiful, heartbreaking, and hopeful. So is the process of change. To be honest about this takes courage and vulnerability. It is also the first step in the process of personal transformation. By working with me, you do me the honor of sharing these experiences for the purpose of healing and personal growth. I believe in a collaborative model of therapy that is centered on your experiences and relational. By sharing together from a place of authenticity my goal is to listen, support, and challenge you in order to face and overcome obstacles standing between you and the fullness of the life you were meant to live.

I put a strong emphasis on the importance of the client's comfort in the room both physically and emotionally.

You’re feeling stuck and maybe a little burned out in your looks-so-awesome career? Or maybe you’re facing a potential or imminent life or relationship change, wondering about your next steps and not sure how to move forward? Or maybe you are looking for a therapist who "gets it" about climate distress, threats to democracy, and the social justice concerns that keep you up at night.

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.
