There has been a major shift for men in our culture. In a previous generation it was considered wise to "cut off" from your emotional self. That style is no longer effective for men. Today men are seeking greater self-awareness. They need to be more aware of their emotions so that they can navigate relationships with strength and wisdom. I have a relaxed style and I believe humor is a part of the healing process. I am interested in helping men move from distress, confusion and pain to clarity, peace, and self-acceptance.

I find that men and women have difficulty accessing the strong resources in themselves. They have difficulty knowing their own wisdom. I am client-centered and think of the "whole" person. I make a special effort to help clients "take in" the goodness within themselves and around them.

As a pastor (recently retired) I help clients find spiritual direction. As an emotionally attuned therapist, I support clients through emotional confusion and distress. As a Somatic Experiencing Therapist (body-based trauma work) I support clients through the trauma events of their lives.
