You can have a positive mindset with SOLUTION-FOCUSED THERAPY. Feeling worried, or your thoughts race, your sleep is off, or you get that feeling in your stomach? At times we get frustrated enough with someone that it affects your work, family life, or health. I know how it sucks to be questioning, stuck, and worked up with tension and concern. Then, self-doubt creeps in--but it doesn’t need to be like that anymore. If you’re curious how to get things calmer, under control, and feel more self-assured, I’m here as a confidant who listens deeply AND offers tools that really work. You CAN increase confidence!

When you seek a therapist, whether due to emotional suffering, a feeling of being "stuck," unhealthy patterns of behavior, grief or life transitions, you hope to find someone who listens. I focus on listening carefully, without judging, with a caring attitude and a commitment to understanding you. I respect the fact that you have been trying your best all along, but now you seek a helping hand. I commit myself to helping because I believe change is always possible.

With 30 years' experience as a treating physician and now with Hypnotherapy as my sole focus, I often see dramatic results after only one, two or three sessions. Conditions classically treated with hypnosis include Anxiety and Stress, Fears and Phobias (flying, needles, storms), Habits (nail biting, hair pulling), Performance Anxiety (public speaking, sports, shyness, test-taking), Smoking, and more. My approach to hypnosis is the same as it was in medical practice, very goal oriented and specific.

I work collaboratively with my patients to explore the ways in which their past experiences have shaped their current relationships, both with themselves and with others. In therapy, we will pay close attention to the dynamics of our own relationship, as well as to patterns of behavior and communication that may be holding you back in other areas of your life. By developing greater self-awareness and insight into these patterns, you can begin to break free of old patterns and forge more meaningful and fulfilling connections with others.

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.
