It can be overwhelming to begin the process of therapy and takes courage to make that first contact. OFFERING VIDEO SESSIONS BECAUSE OF COVID 19. As your therapist I will engage you in becoming comfortable exploring your inner self and learning where do you get stuck and what increases your satisfaction in life. Using a compassionate and collaborative approach, we will develop a plan that addresses your issues. You will learn to look in the mirror and not the magnifying glass to improve both your self image and relationships with others. You will also learn how to set boundaries; this reduces anger and increases self esteem.

You are willing to "do whatever it takes" to save your relationship. 3. You're thinking: Something is missing... I'm worried that I have "fallen" out of love. The kids are a reason to stay married but I need more than that... I'm beginning to think we are behaving more like roommates than lovers. I don't know if I will ever be able to trust them again...

Asking for help is often tough, especially for us as men. Who do you turn to in times of crisis or confusion? We are socialized to be independent and "do it myself." However, there are times where we all need some help. Someone to talk to that won't judge us or ridicule us. One of the most difficult things to do is to make that first phone call to someone you don't know, asking for help. You just hope to get someone trustworthy, compassionate and competent. These are my strongest traits, and I welcome your call today.

We all have moments in life when we could use help processing our feelings and emotional pain. We have times when we feel alone and believe that no one else could possibly understand what we’re going through. Talking with a therapist, someone who’s objective, who will work with you in a way that is meaningful and relevant to you, can be beneficial during these times. I believe good therapy can offer a space where you feel valued, heard, gain insight, learn skills and self-acceptance. Using a collaborative and integrative approach, we can work through negative thoughts, painful emotions, and unresolved problems. I’m here to help.
