Witnessing people create meaningful changes in their lives has been my greatest privilege, as a therapist. Strong, loving relationships, healthy family bonds, vocational success, healing from wounds of trauma, and reconnecting to a joyful participation in life are some of the experiences I have been able to share with clients. I hold a Doctorate in Marriage and Family Therapy and bring my background in creative arts, trauma work, and rich life experience to help clients get past the barriers of anxiety, depression, and trauma.

I am passionate about helping people see the best in themselves, even during the most challenging circumstances. Sometimes this includes processing what is going on around you, sometimes this means exploring aspects of your past that have led to patterns of behavior, and sometimes this means making sense of a hectic society that can seem a little senseless. I am especially keen to work with clients who want to explore aspects of their own identity, whether it be where they came from, their family, their racial or ethnic background, their sexual orientation or gender, and/or diverse relationships.

Have you been feeling dissatisfied or discouraged in your day-to-day life? Do you feel like what you are doing falls short of what you want to accomplish? This can be pretty demoralizing, and it is not uncommon to keep doing what you are doing in the hopes that things will change or get better. Unfortunately, this is often not the case. Hoping for change is not enough for most people, and while there is comfort in knowing what to expect, it doesn’t get you any closer to the life that you deserve. You deserve to be healthy, happy, and fulfilled in all areas of your life. Together, we can get you in a place to make that happen.

People seeking counseling may be troubled by 'external' challenges such as having to deal with difficult people or contend with serious financial issues. Or, problems may lie within the self--you may be stuck in patterns of feeling or behavior that sabotage your pursuit of happiness. Mostly, those entering counseling face both kinds of challenges. If you were to work with me, we would clearly identify and prioritize problems, choose appropriate strategies, and take action to resolve problems. We'll usually work extensively on thoughts and feelings before easing into behavior change.

Waitlist for new clients
I enjoy building therapeutic relationships and promoting positive changes in people's lives. My clients often struggle with depression, anxiety, OCD, phobias, relationship issues, sleep problems, self esteem and confidence. I am especially interested in working with gay identified men and people struggling with phobias or OCD, but love working with all sorts of folks and issues. Working collaboratively with clients, I try to help them find alternative ways of dealing with life's challenges. I believe therapy helps people become more authentic and well balanced version of themselves and not be controlled by anxiety or depression.

I use EMDR and integrative-psychodynamic therapy, with a focus on treating trauma. Currently, I am seeking members for two therapy groups (see below). These are "traditional groups," like you see in the movies. We don't teaching coping skills and they are not psychoeducational. This is a group experience where you can talk openly and honestly with your peers about your problems, hear their problems, and ask for and receive feedback. All groups are online; if we don't take your insurance, the out-of-pocket fee is $75. Call to see if one of these groups is right for you.

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.
