I currently offer ketamine-assisted psychotherapy and psychedelic integration services. I focus on treating chemical addictions, anxiety disorders, and depressive disorders. I believe that developing a safe and secure relationship with each of my patients is essential for them to learn new ways of thinking and behaving, to find meaning and purpose in their life, and to move towards creating a whole and complete sense of self. My approach to healing is informed by acceptance and commitment therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, transpersonal psychology, person-centered therapy, & somatic approaches to healing.

Weight loss and body weight management are the primary subjects of my video-based counseling, where attention is focused on the psychological factors (e.g., stress, self-esteem, low mood, anxiety, work and family pressures, etc.) that contribute to, or interfere with, your success. After 35 years of providing general psychotherapy, my practice has now shifted to a subject I am passionate about: assisting and guiding those who wish to lose weight, and have found previous efforts to do so, unsuccessful. Our counseling will be covered by your insurance plan, because we will be working on issues related to your mental health.

With couples I focus on fostering greater attunement and communication while also empowering each individual to bring the best part of themselves and advocate for what they desire in the relationship. I work with individuals experiencing anxiety, depressed mood, low self-esteem, relationships concerns, life transitions, exploring spirituality and family of origin issues. I also see adolescents experiencing the struggles common to that stage of life.

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.
