Relationship is everything. We all have many relationships, and often, those relationships go into conflict. Conflict in any relationship leads to emotional distress. Whether that conflict is with a spouse or lover, ourselves, friends or family, our community, or even the broader world, all of our relationships and the conflict they can contain influence our mood, thoughts, decisions, behaviors, and communications. External relational conflict occurs between spouses, friends, family, colleagues, and others. Internal relational conflict occurs between us and things like food, our bodies, and sense of self-worth.

Have you grown concerned for yourself or your relationship? It could be arguing... anxiety...depression...or isolation...or maybe you aren't exactly sure and are looking for an expert's second opinion. Oftentimes the clients who come to see me are coming to therapy for the first time and don't exactly know what to expect. Or they have done therapy in the past but didn't find it to be that helpful because all their previous therapist did was let them talk for an hour each week.

Children and families are often in need of healing. This belief led me to earn my Master’s degree in Marriage, Family and Child therapy. What I have been most inspired by after 16 years of working in this field has been the capacity for inner resilience that people have shown in the face of emotional pain, adversity, and trauma. Although other traditional modalities may be incorporated (ex, CBT), I predominately use a creative, play-based approach. This includes therapy interventions such as art, games, and sand tray interventions. Together, we’ll journey toward living brighter, happier lives.

My passion is helping people improve their ability to experience emotions in a healthy way so that they can be the best versions of themselves. We will work together to resolve issues with trauma, anxiety, anger, addiction or feeling stuck in life. You may have tried making changes to feel better or be more positive, but despite your best efforts something is holding you back. You may have instinctual response patterns that are working against you. That's not you, that's survival mode. I will help reduce the struggle by teaching you how to "rewire" your nervous system so that it works with you, allowing you to be the real you.

Your anxiety is a car on a racetrack of thoughts where the only way off is a brief pit stop for repairs. But that only delays reentry to the same circular pattern. Your mind turns familiar scenarios, images, and disasters over and over again, plunging you into stomach-clenching agony. Stress from work, family, and other relationships only make it worse. The worry and fear get so bad sometimes that they boil over into panic. The shame of losing control causes the cycle to start all over again. So you become avoidant of the people and places that seem to trigger these difficult feelings.

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.
