What has happened? Often when the initial shock wears off we will say, "I am okay now". Thus we underestimate the impact of the frequent traumas and stressors in our lives. Over time these pockets of tears, fears and pain affect our relationships, leaving us in feeling more alone. I am a Clinical Psychologist with a medical and stress related background. My integrated therapeutic focus is on interpersonal relationships and the emotions that can affect them. I work with individuals, couples and/or with the parents of children who are having difficulties.

As Mahatma Gandhi said: “You can’t change how people treat you or what they say about you. All you can do is change how you react to it.” I believe that we all sometimes need help to manage how we are reacting to the situations in our lives. Hence, the first step in therapy is understanding what is happening in your life & deciding how we can change it.

I instinctively formulate psychodynamically. However, I am a firm believer of meeting my clients where they are and together framing treatment within a modality that fits the presenting problem and the client’s therapeutic goals. I believe that one size does not fit all! This belief aligns with my integrative training which allows for the viewing of individuals as complex and dynamic beings, who at times struggle with interpersonal challenges rooted in multifaceted systems.

Female Counsellors

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.
