"There has been a major shift for men in our culture. In a previous generation it was considered wise to "cut off" from your emotional self. That style is no longer effective for men. Today men are seeking greater self-awareness. They need to be more aware of their emotions so that they can navigate relationships with strength and wisdom. I have a relaxed style and I believe humor is a part of the healing process. I am interested in helping men move from distress, confusion and pain to clarity, peace, and self-acceptance."

"When we perceive that our lives are threatened, we go into survival mode. Survival mode is essential in the face of imminent danger. But when we feel overwhelmed and defenseless to a traumatic event (witnessing death) or events (a child or partner being repeatedly abused) we can become stuck in survival mode, even when imminent danger is not or is no longer reality. If left untreated, chronic survival mode gradually leads to trauma symptoms, which have lasting effects on an individual's biology, conceptions of the world, and psychological functioning."
