Whether we realize it or not, we're all carrying around a bag: some of us carry a suitcase, others a backpack, and some push around a luggage cart or two overflowing with their bags. Why not downsize a bit? Therapy is all about you. Yes, you'll talk about other people, most likely. But it's not an hour about how they feel; it's an hour about how you feel. It's an hour to be completely open and honest about your life without judgement or interruption. And you deserve it.

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.

Is there a relationship in your life that's getting 'under your skin'? Perhaps it seems the other person regards/regarded you as either “special” - the one he can never get enough of - or as “independent” - free to make your own choices with or without him - but never, or too rarely, as both special and free? The problem is, you don’t understand how you came to be having this kind of relationship and/or you don’t know how to change your life for the better, to stop the dysfunction for good. If this is you and you are unable/unwilling to settle for the status quo, I can help.

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.
