In addressing the concerns of my clients, I wish to meet them where they are and then walk with them through the journey of self-discovery and personal empowerment. Critical to this fluid equation is the cultivation of the therapeutic alliance and a sincere focus on deep, empathic listening. I apply the basic elements of mindfulness, whole person perspective, and cognitive behavioral therapy in a series of counseling sessions that aim to guide the client toward their desired goals of healing, balance, and improved inner health. The pressures of modern life can lower a shadow of despair over anyone's sense of well-being.

The journey of finding a therapist that you feel safe and confident with can be overwhelming, but it is the brave first step towards your own healing. Through my travels I have come to appreciate how empathy and compassion are the key to happy and healthy lives, no matter what country or culture we find ourselves in. I believe that everyone deserves respect and validation and through my client-centered approach to therapy, I strive to provide a relaxed, gentle, and non-judgmental environment that allows my clients to feel safe and seen.

Life is an ever-changing journey with so many pitfalls and struggles, it is hard to keep ahead. So many people find themselves struggling with low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, and other issues that keep us stuck in old patterns. Ideally, I am looking for people who want to make change, even if they feel resistant to the idea right now. Personally, I look to help those individuals who are at least contemplating growth, change, and coming out of the self-constructed safety box. We are not simply looking for the light, we are searching for the source within you. Simply put, people who want to be the favorite version on themselves.

Seems there's always another way to tone and nourish our bodies. Yet our minds - well, they don't often get the same dedicated attention. Our thoughts swirl. Our emotions wind into mashups of who-knows-what. And in case anyone's been stuck in a cave, the world is a virtual buffet of fuel for anxiety and panic du jour. It's hard to keep up. So how do we ease the angst, reset the stress level, and tone our minds so that even amid an unpredictable, stress-inducing world, we are steadier, calmer, more centered, and more resilient? And yes actually, we can be and feel ok even when it feels like everything around us is a bit crazy.

I have extensive experience working with individuals and couples. Couple's work is helpful for restoring intimacy, closeness, and communication. Couples work can also be useful for one's individual psychotherapy as partners often help to bring attention to areas of life which have been neglected. Long-term relationships have ups and downs, multiple stressors, as well as developmental phases, which can rupture relationships. Couples therapy is very dynamic. A well-trained couples' therapist can bring a marriage back from the brink of disaster allowing an entire family to avoid the trauma and financial devastation of divorce.

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.
