I deeply enjoy connecting with adolescents and children. I have 7 younger siblings whose ages currently range from early adolescence to adulthood. From the time my parents divorced several years ago, I have become a mentor for several of my siblings and remain closely connected to them. In addition to my clinical training, my sibling relationships have given me years of personal experience working with children and adolescents and their varying personalities and responses as they experienced hard things.

I take clients from all different backgrounds and presenting problems. Most of my clients have complex problems that start as internal struggles from depression, poor mood regulation, anxiety, racing thoughts, over-active anger, poor self-esteem, and judgment of self and others. These issues turn into interpersonal and relational problems that create felt chaos and cyclically feed those internal struggles. Clients often come in focusing on the outside chaos and miss the internal factors.

“I should have quit this a long time ago.” You think back all those years ago when you thought you’d kick the habit soon. You never imagined you’d still be so absorbed in sex and hiding it from everyone, all these years later. It’s a terrible thing, to be two people: the healthy one that everyone knows and the addicted one you hide inside. The line gets blurry, and you dread the day that all this stuff breaks out and hurts the ones you love. Or maybe that’s already happening? You’re determined to not accept that it’s out of control, but in this moment you are facing the reality of needing help.

I help couples of all types heal, strengthen and enhance their relationships. By creating a warm and inviting environment through respect, humor and authentic relational connection, couples feel safe and welcome. This allows me to provide support for partners that feel lost or disconnected in their relationship and want to rediscover the love they have for each other. Feeling disconnected from our partner can cause emotional disharmony, which can greatly impact other areas of the relationship including intimacy, finances, and communication. ---------------------THERE IS HOPE!----------------------

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.
