The search for a therapist can be a daunting task. Dr. Wahl recognizes this and is intentional about creating a comfortable, compassionate, and confidential setting for therapy. “I get excited to meet with people who have the motivation to participate in the life enhancing path of therapy. I have seen many people grow, heal, improve their ability to love and be loved, find more purpose and meaning, improve their work, and, in general, improve their sense of how to do life well. The first move is to make an appointment so we can get this rolling for you.” – Dr. Wahl

I look forward to working with adults and teens who feel life is out of their control or who struggle with allowing themselves to be in the present moment. Anxiety and depression can draw our minds towards the past and the future. This makes it difficult for us to appreciate what surrounds us. Additionally, adult and teen athletes and musicians struggling with performance issues can feel overlooked by others. Common issues I have found include eating disorders, body image issues, struggles with personal identity, and more.

Some of us simply communicate and convey our thoughts more effectively in writing. The face to face setting can be overwhelming at times. And some of us have incredibly busy lives that do not lend themselves to weekly in office therapy sessions. Or we need more help taking the skills that we are learning in therapy and applying them effectively outside of the session. And who has not had the experience where something major has happened in their lives, but they have to wait days or a week or more for their next therapy session?

Life can be very challenging and overwhelming, and our natural tendency is to freeze or flee from our issues. However the best solution is to walk through them, and I can help you in that process. I like to listen intently to hurting or frustrated people who are stuck in addictions, toxic relationships, depression, anxiety, and confusing situations and help them come up with solutions that will work. It's important to feel supported when we're overwhelmed, and I make that my primary goal.

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.
