I have been providing therapy for over 30 years, specializing in treating anxiety, panic attacks, post traumatic stress disorder, depression, bipolar disorder, trauma, relationship issues and individuals with disabilities. Life provides us with numerous challenges and struggles, however, I have found that we have the ability to create many do-overs during our life-time. Therapy is a great way to create change, learn self-acceptance and heal.

Are you looking for something different when it comes to therapy? I believe therapy can be more relaxed & not always serious & "stuffy". My goal is for you to have an experience of comfort and encouragement while also working through difficult situations and feelings. We talk about your concerns but also about your strengths & looking at things from different perspectives. During these conversations, we can laugh about some things, have a cup of coffee/tea together and color a picture. I work hard to provide a positive, accepting and non-judgmental environment where you feel safe to talk about your reality and truth.

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.
