My approach to treating clients emphasizes a compassionate-focused and individualized approach which infuses medication management and supportive therapy. I therefore created VIP Psychiatry, a concierge private practice that tailors treatment to the client and allows for flexible scheduling. I commend my clients for taking the first step by calling the office and admitting that help is needed. Exploring emotions and behaviors in an honest way can feel frighting but be very rewarding. When clients are ready to get the help they seek, I provide the support and techniques needed to help them overcome the issues they face.

Telepsych offered for most clients. As a mental health consumer myself, I understand the damper mental illness can have on your life. What once made you happy leaves you dull, things you looked forward to make you feel anxious, and the people around you are concerned. You may feel hopeless and helpless and have tried therapy and medication in the past with little success. Spending time to listen to you is what I do best. Medication is not always needed, but when it is you will have the education to make an informed decision of how you want to proceed. I believe in quality of service, not quantity. You time should be Your time.

Male Psychiatrists

As a man, why might I want to see a male therapist?

There are many reasons a man might wish to work with a male therapist, including a degree of shared identity, which may help client and therapist connect to each other and allow for a more free-flowing discussion of issues that can be deeply personal. Some men may feel more comfortable talking to a male therapist about relationship concerns, the pressures they feel around the roles society and family place on men, career or job challenges, self-esteem, or anger problems. For some men who have not had a male role models in their lives, a good male therapist may be especially helpful.

How can I find out about a therapist’s experience treating men?

Individuals looking for treatment should feel comfortable directly asking a therapist about their history treating men overall and the issues that arise in therapy with men. A good therapist will be happy to discuss such matters as well as their educational background, approach to treatment, and how they think they can aid a prospective client. Prospective clients should also ask what the expectation is for treatment, and what the fee structure is, and whether and which insurance plans are accepted.

Can clients benefit from having a therapist of the same gender?

Therapy is not gender-specific, but some men as well as women feel more comfortable opening up about their experiences and history with a male therapist. An individual may feel that they have to explain less background information and be on the same page more quickly, particularly when discussing gender-specific challenges, in the case of male clients. Some women have prior negative experiences with women that predispose them to prefer working with a male in therapy. That said, a good clinician can transcend most if not all gender concerns. Ultimately, the most important factor in therapy is the connection and trust the client is able to build with the practitioner.

Would a male therapist have specific training in treating men?

Generally, no. There are no certifications for treating men specifically, but there are continuing education classes that therapists may take that focus on treating men as a group. There are many therapists who focus on men and male issues in their treatment and therefore have experience and expertise in this domain.
