A Feminist Therapist
Being a feminist therapist means I am mindful of the ways power influences relationships. Societal expectations, gender roles, racial differences, and our family of origin all play vital roles in determining how we manage conflict, make decisions, and communicate in our relationships. It also makes me aware of my own privilege in the therapy room, and how that impacts the dynamic between therapist and client. Feminist therapy makes my approach dynamic because in the case of therapy, one size does not fit all.
