“People only seriously consider change when they feel accepted for exactly who they are.” -Carl Rogers. Of the concerns that bring folks to therapy, the ability to find someone understanding is most important. I utilize a Person in Environment (PIE) and strengths-based framework. This means understanding and appreciating how one’s environment impacts their life as well as the individual qualities one possesses to create change. My theoretical orientation includes Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness, and feminist theory. My values include compassion, persistence, and authenticity.

My varied work history has afforded me the opportunity to work with individuals and families facing a wide range of life challenges. I have the most experience in working with those suffering from anxiety and/or depressive disorders, coping with grief/loss, experiencing family conflict or interpersonal difficulties, or dealing with the lasting impact of traumatic experience. I primarily work with individuals but understand the role and importance of family and therefore include family members as necessary. I view my role as helping the individual to define existing problems, identify realistic goals, and actualize those goals.

People entering therapy are often overwhelmed with distressing thoughts and emotions. Others feel stuck repeating destructive behaviors or chasing dissatisfying relationships. Many clients have tried therapy in the past and want a deeper approach that gets to the root of their issues.

Life’s challenges don’t always respond to our usual strategies or the advice we seek from friends and family. Some situations require shorter-term solutions while others need deeper exploration and longer-term work. That’s where counseling comes in—an opportunity to speak with a neutral third party who can listen, empathize, and introduce new perspectives and skills to help you work through the challenges with support.

I'm guessing you landed on this page for a reason. And, the truth is, you've got everything it takes to create the life you deserve. Maybe you just need some inspiration. Or a swift kick in the ass. Or somebody to help you change your thinking. I know I did. If you feel stuck and unfulfilled and wonder why nothing seems to go your way, I can relate. I struggled in every aspect of my life, failing to see the world as a place of abundance. I struggled in my career and in relationships. I struggled to set goals. Many days, I struggled just to get out of bed. Then, I decided I'd had enough. I decided it was time for a change.

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.
