I believe in a Client-centered, Cognitive-Behavioral approach with an emphasis on personal responsibility, accountability, and ownership of problem solving to bring about personal change. I specifically use the Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) model. The goal of ACT is acceptance of what is out of personal control, and a commitment to action for life improvement and enrichment. Additionally, mindfulness training including meditation, relaxation, and guided imagery can be used for therapeutic intervention.

First of all; I'd like to say I'm sorry if you are dealing with something that feels like more then you can handle on your own. Second, I would like to compliment your willingness to reach out for support, it can be a daunting process. The truth is that these problems rarely exist in a vacuum, nor do they have a straight forward. A number of variables come together and cause us to feel like were not the person we want to be. If your willing, I'd like to help.

I approach each client from a place of gratitude and awe. It takes enormous courage to ask for help. That is never lost on me. A key to therapy is building a therapeutic relationship between the therapist and the client. The client in the beginning, out of shear bravery, allows me into their journey. As they learn to trust me and open up, we begin to explore their unique nuances, their ups and downs, their pains, their hurts, as well as their successes along their journey. In this exploration together, healing and understanding begins to flourish.

Whether it is the loss of a loved one, a significant life transition, relational struggles, questions of identity, persistent feelings of guilt, shame, or inadequacy, constant worries, or existential/spiritual doubts, we can be left feeling lost and unsure what to do next.

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.
