Therapy for me is the art of helping a person bring wholeness to their life with the Christ-inspired profound understanding that the human person has the potential to be more beautiful after we experience brokenness than before. I’m convinced this is true, even if it may sound hard to believe and just a nice sounding statement.

So it's come to this. You're looking for a counselor. Maybe you've been putting this off for a long time and something happened just recently to make you take the step. Maybe someone you know thinks you should "get help." Maybe there's something you want to talk about but don't know if you can tell your family or friends. Or maybe it's something totally different. My job is to give you the tools you need to make your current situation better by increasing your knowledge, skills, insight, awareness, and most of all, hope.

Why do you seem to grow irritable and frustrated with other people? Is there something that keeps you from being able to communicate with your partner? Something that keeps you from doing well at work? Why is it so hard to talk to that family member, to trust other people--to trust even your own judgment? You know just what you want to do in life (growth, stability, security, find a supportive romantic relationship), yet, so many of your goals have never been realized.

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.

I believe that what we are dealing with is not who we are. Challenges with substance use, mental health symptoms, relationships, or whatever else you are facing do not define you. Learning how to see beyond these things to the full and complete person you are can be both difficult and healing. I believe that my role as a therapist is to help clients start that process in a supportive and non-judgmental way. I want you to feel that you are the driving force in your therapy experience, not judgement or stigmas.

Life demands tremendous effort and intention to navigate; but good mental health does not have to be a mystery. You may experience depression, anxiety, worry, struggles with relationships, substance use, and feel burdened by life. However, your life can be changed in a profound way to help you achieve balance. Perhaps you don't know what direction your life is headed, or are stuck in unhealthy relationship patterns. Perhaps you already have relative balance but feel an urgent need to deepen your understanding of yourself?

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.
