Clients have varied reasons for coming to therapy, and my approach is to meet you wherever you are on your journey, to work collaboratively to find the best ways forward. I focus first on building trust together, establishing a solid working relationship, and deciding together whether I am the right fit for what you want to achieve in therapy, because those are crucial elements for achieving therapeutic goals.

Greetings! In searching for a therapist you seek someone who is capable of listening to you and truly hearing. It is essential that your therapist is able to understand your 'starting point' in order to help you pursue your personal and relationship objectives. It is my honor to assist you. In my profession it is rare to find a therapist who has remained in face-to-face counseling for the duration of his/her career. With gratitude I can say God has blessed me as a counselor bringing help to many hurting and dismayed individuals, couples and families.

The first time I sought therapy, my heart was broken. Not just from a relationship ending, but from a dawning realization that parts of me felt unworthy of love. Looking back now, such painful forays into therapy are also, in a way, exciting. They are a wake up call to evolve, to shed an old skin, and to transform into a more alive and pure us. To let go of worn out, imprisoning, and burdensome stories, beliefs, and defenses. The catalyst - the challenging event or circumstances that brought you to these words - is probably a doorway, and could be the beginning of a grand adventure…

Therapy sometimes feels intimidating and it might be hard to know where to start. I take a collaborative approach with clients to understand what led to the appointment, what kind of change they would like to see, and what barriers are preventing it. Therapy is a process of finding clarity and adjusting behaviors so that actions and values are aligned. What might sound simple, is rarely easy, and often there may be practical, societal, systemic, legal or cultural barriers that compound the difficulty. Whether goals are emotional, behavioral, relational or health-related, we will find a path forward.

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.
