Skip feels a connection when helping others develop insight to make positive changes in their lives. Skip believes that thoughts and feelings are the impetus that drive human behavior. His approach then to therapy is rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Theory. In creating a paradigm shift from negative thoughts and feelings to increased positive thoughts and feelings, maladaptive behaviors often dissipate. Skip also believes that traumatic experiences exacerbate the lives of many of his clients and therefore, utilizes Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).

Greetings from Frank Smith, MFT. Let me offer a truism: whether positive or negative, most behavior is learned. Behavior often results in patterns. Those patterns can be positive and life affirming. But they can also be maladaptive and impact our self-esteem, happiness and relationships. You may be wondering...why can't I break these destructive patterns? I can help you unravel where they came from. Such awareness is the first step toward better emotional health. Let me be your psychological navigator to help you let go of the past and have a better and more fulfilling life.

Whatever’s bothering you, even if it’s thoughts of suicide, you don’t have to face life’s overwhelming difficulties alone. Family and friends mean well, but because their backgrounds are often similar to your own, they may not have the ability to offer new perspectives, without judgment.

In working with them, you'll be included in parts or all of their sessions. My practice is called the Rio Rancho Family Counseling Center. When you're seeing me alone or as a couple, you determine when and what problems to talk about and how fast and how deep we go. I draw on several methods of therapy because my practice is patient oriented and patient directed.

Everyone has long-standing behavior patterns, habitual perceptions, and irrational beliefs - left unexamined some of these are going to undermine your happiness. As a cognitive-constructivist (wordy way of saying we choose how we make sense of the world) my goal is to help you see things from different perspectives and to respond to life's challenges in new and more rewarding ways. Just as you have taught your body to respond reflexively, your thinking has also become reflexive. When you become aware of your patterned thoughts and emotional reflexes, you can decide what works for you and what works against you.

Dreams and the unconscious hold symbols that assist in the healing process for depression, anxiety, and addictions. As a Jungian clinical counselor, I use these tools to help you establish a connection between consciousness and the higher Self. The Self then becomes a strong core from which we can operate in a healed and healthy manner. We are no longer driven by unconscious complexes and desires, but make conscious decisions that support life and its many expressions.

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.
