You can develop and improve skills you need to live a more exciting and satisfying life; improve your relationships with significant others; and have a more rewarding career. Negative mood states get in the way of your best efforts, leaving you with low energy or little interest in things that were once important. You may be afraid or feel tired; as if things are turning out wrong; as if there is nothing you can do to make them right again. You can change! You can remember when things went well! You can be happy and experience good feelings again!

My treatment orientation is both cognitive and psycho-dynamic psychotherapy. Modalities include Relaxation Techniques, Hypnosis, and De-sensitization for Phobic and other stress related illnesses. I am a very interactive therapist who has been responsive to the Managed Care directives that often limit the number of psychotherapy sessions. The oftentimes short term treatment requirements has required the need for techniques that are more time limited and outcome focused.

I will be offering periodic updates. I hope that this will be helpful to you and familiarize you with my thinking. For divorcing parents: Make sure your children know you are divorcing each other and not them. Be dependable - visit when you say you will. Keep your children out of the middle - argue in private. Take your time introducing someone new or living with someone. When possible maintain connections with extended family. Work on yourself so you are the best parent you can be. Children take time to adjust. There may be a delay before they discover feelings about the divorce.

Male Therapists

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.
