When choosing a therapist, the gender of the therapist may be important to you. Even though male or nonbinary therapists are capable of providing impactful therapy, you may be more comfortable, safe, or vulnerable with a female therapist.

You can find a therapist who meets your personal preferences, especially if you seek a professional who identifies as a woman therapist. Whether you are located in downtown Apple Valley, the suburbs of Apple Valley, other nearby places such as Eagan, Burnsville, or anywhere else in Minnesota, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

The Benefits of Talk Therapy with a Woman Therapist

There are several reasons why you may choose a female counselor or therapist, and they include:

  • You may feel more comfortable talking to a woman therapist, no matter your own gender identity. It is important that you feel comfortable with your therapist, as the relationship you have is one of the biggest predictors of outcomes in therapy.
  • People who have suffered abuse or harassment from men may not feel comfortable sharing their feelings with a male therapist. A woman therapist may feel safer.
  • It may be important to your own healing to develop a safe, compassionate connection with a woman, especially if you have not had such relationships in the past.
