Do you find having the same arguments with your child or spouse over and over again? Do you find you and your family members shutting down, getting in loud yelling matches, or slamming doors as some topics are brought up? Does your heart hurt so much that you cannot breathe or find yourself choking on your tears at times? Sometimes maintaining healthy relationships is so hard that it hurts people & even worse, makes them feel hopeless that change will ever happen. If you wish your relationship with your family were better, different, or even more tolerable, it might be time to consider reaching out for help.

I believe strongly in the importance of counseling grounded in respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I believe counseling is not just about feeling better but being better at dealing with the feelings we experience as we face life’s challenges. With the support of someone to help us process or teach us new skills difficult times can become times of growth. I enjoy working with people of all ages and backgrounds but particularly enjoy working with people going through life changes and middle school and high school youth.

I love working with clients who aren't afraid to be curious, or who may still be afraid, but are willing to gently explore those tender places in themselves that keep them stuck and unfulfilled. Anyone who is willing to dip a toe into unfamiliar waters is brave and capable of obtaining the healing and peace they're seeking. I love being a kind and, sometimes, firm guide in this process and am humbled and gratified to walk alongside my clients on this path.

Trauma is any adverse experience that causes extreme emotional reaction: nightmares, flashbacks, anxiety etc. When meeting with me many reach their destination feeling guilty for their response to their unique experience — because its “less than” others. As we begin the journey to health and recovery, I assure all that their individual experience is different and unique. Our goal is to get to the point where you know that your feelings/emotions are not better or worse than another’s, as all individuals have a right to their feelings. No trauma is better, worse, harder or easier than another because it depends on how we react.

Life truly is a journey. On this journey, we are often faced with events that weren't planned for, or that we just are not sure how to navigate. Sometimes we experience emotions or concerns that we just can't seem to feel in control of or feel we can manage effectively. As humans, we are designed to be connected to one another. When we go through life's challenges, this connection is critical to help support and empower us to use our skills and identify resources, moving us along life's path. For some of us, rather than reaching out, we may withdraw and isolate, making our navigation more difficult. We feel "stuck".

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.
