I want to create a safe and supportive space for you to find comfort, trust, and empowerment. I specialize in helping individuals dealing with depression, anxiety, relationship challenges, personal issues, and more. I know reaching out for help can be difficult, but I am here to walk alongside you. The relationship between therapist and client is crucial and begins from the moment we connect. While I practice at a Christian counseling center, discussions about religion or faith will only occur if you initiate them.

Most any therapist will tell you that they prefer seeing clients who are motivated to change. Clients presenting as "depressed" often express little or no hope. Clients with anxiety have difficulty seeing stressful situations as manageable. Couples often present with one or both doubting that the marriage can survive. I believe all clients have incredible inherent God-given resources to effect positive change. Likewise, I believe marriages are salvageable, if couples are willing to work, to be vulnerable, to accept, and to understand that the greatest expression of love is to fully know and to be known.

People should be accepted as they are. Issues, goals, and needs vary from one person to the next; therefore, co-creating the desired future of the client is essentially important.

In his poem, “Messy Room” Shel Silverstein helps us see a room where everything is out of place - the sweater is on the floor, the pants are on the door, and the old sock is stuck to the wall. Interestingly enough, the same character that made these initial observations begins to recognize everything in the room as his own. Indeed, this is his room and his mess. Much like this room, life can be messy but it does not have to stay that way. With a client-centered, strength-based, solution-focused approach, we will discover new insights that help promote positive change and forward momentum for the next step of your journey.

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.
