I work with males between the ages of 13 through adulthood either in-person or virtual. I particularly like helping dads navigate fatherhood. With school-aged young men we work on friend/relationship concerns, home life, gaining independence, parental divorce, loss, school life, and what to do after high school. With adult men and dads I help them find balance with family, work, and friend issues as they navigate this new role. Finding space and maintaining energy apart from the family unit without guilt while fostering positive masculinity is tough to learn, but necessary to be more present with the self as well as partners & kids.
All individuals are essentially good and possess the inborn tendency towards growth and personal fulfillment of potential. Through a counseling relationship built on empathy, genuineness and teamwork, people tend to learn how to become self-aware and accepting of themselves. I use Motivational Interviewing and Mindfulness to help clients come up solutions.
Think about it...when was the last time you took a whole hour just for yourself? Therapy is an opportunity to focus on what's going on in your life with a professional who is a sounding board for ideas, celebrations and problems without the distractions outside of the session. You should be proud of yourself starting the journey. Hope to meet you soon!

There are two different systems at play: the brain and the body. The brain's job is to seek out problems to anticipate the worst-case scenario. The body's job is to react to what the brain is telling it to do. This threat response is useful in small doses, but in our work together, we will learn to reverse the process: using the body to show the brain that there's no harm in the present moment.
