I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with extensive experience working with families, couples and individuals. Additionally, I ran a certified organic farm over the past 23 years. Although farming is not therapy, it is indeed therapeutic. Farming, like therapy, is about positive growth. Working with people who are interested in making positive change is a passion for me. Anyone who is willing to look into personal transformation in their everyday life has my utmost respect. A decision of this nature can be challenging and even sometimes scary. But, your motivation will work well for you.

Wine Trail Behavioral Health, LLC is a private practice devoted to the notion that the provision of competent services is based on an appreciation of interpersonal (i.e., relational) as well as intrapersonal factors in the etiology and maintenance of emotional and behavioral problems. Toward this end, a broader more ecologically oriented framework that targets the multiple contexts in which children and families are embedded, is adopted. Importantly, this approach to treatment is consistent with causal modeling literature in the areas of child and adolescent psychopathology, and has received empirical support in controlled clinical trials.

There is an old saying: "Never give a sword to a person who can't dance". This wisdom speaks directly to minds that are stuck and cannot move rhythmically but are bound to fear, anxiety and neglect. When our minds become inflexible, we cut ourselves away from our intuitive self, causing suffering and pain. Only with the experience of standing unbiased and naked in "another's shoes" can we really know we are clear and authentic. When we become authentic, we receive confidence. Confidence begets creativity and with creativity we discover our life.

The challenges of life’s situations, the loss of a loved one, underlying trauma, mental illness, substance misuse, intimate partner violence can bring on feelings of loneliness, sadness, fear, anger, desperation, hopelessness, and grief to name a few. These emotions can at times leave us feeling “not like ourselves,” overwhelmed, and out of control, thereby, interfering with our daily lives and our ability to enjoy life to the fullest. Take a moment to imagine your life without these problems.

Are you struggling in your current relationship? I am here to help. Yadi and I have been together over 30 years and I am passionate about helping couples stay in love and have healthy positive relationships. I believe the traditional 60 minute session for couples is not very effective. Couples get very frustrated at the 60 minute mark when therapists end sessions abruptly. As a result, I allocate about 75 minutes when meeting with couples. Please note that I do not accept insurance for couples' sessions. My fee is $150.00. Before considering separation/divorce, please contact me. You will be happy that you made the call!

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.
