Struggling with confusion and anger? Family, friends, co-workers taking you for granted, or don't listen? That's frustrating, and I'd love to help! Can't sleep, work, or focus on important matters because of ongoing arguments in your head, or an urge to find someone to blame? Maybe you feel trapped, and no matter what you do, that feeling of not getting anywhere makes it worse. It's so upsetting that slowly you are losing confidence in your sanity. Everybody experiences something like this occasionally. But your life doesn't have to constantly be this way.

I have been in the mental health field since 1995. Because of my many years working with people in crisis, I have become skilled in sifting through the confusion and disorder that is often present in difficult situations, to find out what the primary issues are.

On the outside, it may seem like everything is in place, but underneath, anxiety has been a constant companion. Juggling college or starting your career, navigating relationships, and handling the pressures of young adulthood can feel like an uphill battle. You're caught between striving for success and feeling overwhelmed by the weight of expectations. Balancing it all seems like an unreachable goal, especially when your natural tendency to please others makes it hard to prioritize your own well-being. Yet, in the midst of this chaos, you recognize the need for change.

Life can be difficult, painful, wonderful, confusing, and more. As a therapist it is my goal to provide space in this complicated world for people to feel seen and heard, learn about their difficulties and create positive change. I enjoy working with children, adolescents, adults, couples and families. I am most interested in helping clients understand how environmental dynamics of past and present have come to impact a person, then learn to shift from unhelpful to more helpful patterns of living. Those I have worked with often tell me that I am honest, caring, silly, and “down to Earth”.

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.
