***In-Person Appointments*** The most expensive kind of therapy is the kind that doesn't work. Maybe it feels scary to wonder if real healing can happen. I'm a Certified EMDR Therapist and I combine EMDR with IFS therapy to create an effective method that has worked for permanent healing time and again. Instead of feeling bad about certain parts of ourselves, I encourage people to instead get curious and compassionate toward these "parts of themselves" that are trying to keep them safe and help them by making them anxious, angry, or even depressed.(Sounds strange, right?) We slow things down and get to know you, one part at a time.

Learning to navigate your heart—its past and present aches and longings—and learning how to walk alongside others is essential for discovering purpose in your life. Real, meaningful living involves finding safe places to tell your story and share your struggles; it means relying on someone to hear and hold what your heart has held alone. Counseling is a focused and supportive space for such work to be done. Every journey begins with a single step. An inch in the right direction.

Secular psychology has many models for helping people live psychologically and socially healthy lives. And while there is value in these approaches, they are at root secular and not founded upon a religious or spiritual understanding of reality. For some people, the spiritual or religious is central to who they are and how they live. These people are not comfortable with the secular notion that one can be fully healthy while ignoring God. As a Christian, who is trained in secular psychology and Christian theology, I offer as an option a Christian counseling approach that attempts to incorporate the best of both worlds.

You're tired of being stuck. Stuck in a rut of the same old emotions and behaviors you've fought for so long. Maybe your past or painful memories are holding you back, or perhaps the accusing thoughts have become too heavy. You're not sure exactly how to get out or how to change, but you're ready for something different, and you're tired of fighting alone.

After the fresh passion of a new or developing relationship cools, partners in marriages and committed relationships often find they experience a distancing from one another. Often this distancing results in anger and resentment toward partners. Problems which were once minor irritants now seem to be major issues which seem to always be a source of conflict and anger, or may be avoided entirely for fear of conflict. In counseling couples and families using the Gottman method, my passion is helping my clients transform their relationships and gain a new sense of optimism in their relational pursuits.

I'm very interested in a person's patterns. It's been my experience that a person's patterns often serve to increase or maintain their symptoms of depression and anxiety. Different patterns that consistently impact these symptoms include communication style, emotional expression, connection to others, and how someone addresses problems. My work focuses on identifying patterns, understanding how they influence symptoms and behaviors, and then helping someone make decisions about how to change them. My hope is that people end their work with me with increased self-awareness, improved relationships, and a sense of wholeness.

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.
