You are not broken. People don't come to therapy to be "fixed." They come to be understood and to gain insight that will help them feel better and do better. They come to reach their goals, dreams and ultimately their full potential. I can help you see your multitude of choices and options, problem solve the hard stuff and ultimately make the best decisions for you. I'm excited to be introducing MindWire Neurofeedback starting in Oct. 2021. I also utilize CBT, EMDR, ACT, DBT, Solutions Focused, Motivational Interviewing, NET, Therapeutic Metaphors, Play Therapy and other methods in to customize and best help you reach your goals.

As a psychotherapist I enjoy helping people who have not found the assistance they need from other professionals. I focus on understanding the real causes of suffering, not just symptoms or a diagnosis. I value the complexity of the mind and work carefully with my patients to tailor each treatment approach to their specific and unique needs. I do not simply assume what you need, instead we collaborate together. Psychotherapy can be profoundly meaningful and I have experience helping people from a wide variety of backgrounds. I also use Neurofeedback therapy and qEEG (brain mapping) assessments to inform my clinical practice.

Not accepting new clients
Since 2007, I have helped families who experience intense conflict around parenting, religious differences, relationship commitment, and sexual intimacy concerns. My clients ages range from 18 months old to 70+ years old. Whether you are an individual, couple, or family I always work from a systemic lens. This means I am always considering the context from which your struggles arise. Be prepared to include the entire context in the therapeutic process. For instance, for defiant children, I'm working with all active parents, and the school. And for couples, I'm ensuring both partners are heard and understood in therapy.

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.
