Life is a beautiful journey but it's path is undeniably filled with "pitfalls" that can ensnare us, imprison us, and rob us of hope. My goal is to come alongside you when you feel "stuck," and help you find the key that unlocks the door to freedom. As we walk together my goal is to help you discover hope again as you find relief from painful emotional wounds and break free from unhelpful thought patterns and false core beliefs. You will also learn practical ways to control thoughts, urges, and emotions keeping you stuck in unwanted, destructive behavior patterns.

There are times in life when the grips of despair, brokenness, and shame tear us down. When hardship, loss, conflict, and confusion disconnect us from ourselves and others. When our thoughts, our feelings, our choices, and our relationships all seem to be burdensome. When we feel stuck. We know we need help, we need change, we need health; but we have no idea what to do or where to find it. Finding trusted support during these seasons of life can be difficult, but the reward for facing these struggles can be immense.

I believe that all people have the capacity for immense change and growth. Together, we work to solve problems, confront relationship conflict and address personal concerns. My goal as a clinician is to assist you with making life affirming choices that lead to a healthier lifestyle. Often times, people have experienced negative life experiences that block a person's natural processing abilities.

This is what I believe, love God and love people and people today are indescribably busy. Busy with family, work, social schedules, social media...just keeping up with life and with all that there is little time for the individual who is often left exhausted, feeling lonely, isolated perhaps unseen. To me, loving people means meeting them where they are so they can be seen and heard. Also, I am a retired law enforcement officer of 25 years and as such I understand the unique needs of first responders, and have experience working with emergency services personnel and family members of emergency responders.

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.
