I find that being a male therapist who has specialty training with children and adolescents is rare.
Although I work with children and adolescents individually, working with them alone is not sufficient. As a rule, I strive to incorporate parents in the process as much as possible. I also strongly believe in involving teachers, pediatricians, and other professionals in order to provide comprehensive treatment. As a parent myself, I am very aware of what it is like for me to entrust my childrens' care into the hands of another. For me, working with children is thus a very privileged thing. To be successful, I first start with earning the trust and respect of both parent and child.

Every day, men and women all over the world change and overcome adversity.
My vision of the counseling process comes from a belief that all of us, at times, encounter experiences that we are unable to handle on our own. These brief times are but a small moment in the course of our existence. How we handle these small moments can make a big difference in the direction and quality of our lives. This, to me, is the essence of being a therapist. My goal is to help others learn, grow and develop the tools and skills necessary to triumph during these difficult times.

I treat adolescents of 13+ with their growth and individuation efforts, both male and female.
I have had success treating the middle aged female, 40-60, with relational, launching, re-entry and life change issues. I also integrate biofeedback of various types into the treatment program in order to either avoid or minimize medication interventions, when appropriate. I search diligently the patient's medical history and symptoms, and work with local medical providers, to rule out general medical conditons that may be driving psychological symptoms, e.g. hypothyroid and depression, or adrenal issues and anxiety or depression. Anxiety can be treated with biofeedback interventions and I provide in-office treatment and take home devices.

My work with children and families, has lead me to developing a much needed group for men on how to be the father's they want to be.
Has life become stressful and overwhelming? Are your family relationships being impacted? I believe this stress can wound the spirit and cause parents to be angry, children to be angry and act out and spouses to become resentful. I can help families and individuals communicate in ways that help to heal old wounds and restore a sense of hope. I work with your own internal strengths to support change and help you discover your unmet needs. I strongly believe in the power of self-exploration to create opportunities for positive life changes.

Relationships are a dominant presence in our lives; we are meant to be relational. The relationships we remember from the past, experience in the present, and anticipate in the future are perhaps the most influential force in shaping who we are. I believe there are three types of relationships that therapy can foster health in - a person's relationship with himself or herself, a person's relationship with other people, and, for people of faith, a person's relationship with God. There is perhaps no better gift that could be received than a healthier relationship in these areas.

Therapy must be purposeful to improve the quality of life. To improve our relationships, our own psychological and emotional wellbeing. It takes place in an environment that is safe and supportive. It takes place with a therapist who is genuine, sensitive and skillful. When you enter therapy with me I bring all of my education and experience to share with you. I also bring a measure of humility and open mindedness that 38 years of private practice has taught me. I've learned as much from the people I see as, I hope, they have learned from me.

From my professional experience (over 30 years) as professor, author, clinician in both private practice, and mental health and addiction programs, I do not believe there is really an "ideal client". Some people behave more like visitors (not interested in change), others as complainers (who want others or anything except themselves to change) and then there are those clients who are willing customers for change regardless of the dominant problem narrative or presenting problem. I'm genuinely curious, collaborative, relational, respectful, empathic, non-judgmental and invite clients to move toward the possibility of being interested in possible transformational or even small changes.
