I am passionate about working with young people and members of the LGBTQ+ community. As a former educator, I have extensive experience working with youth, and specialize in issues related to adolescence, young adulthood, coming out, queer identities, perfectionism, self-image, and learning disabilities. I am well-versed in integrated therapeutic practices which involve connecting current challenges with personal history and combining cognitive therapy with meditation and mindfulness training. Also, the handsome fella in the pic is Hud, our rescue pup. He's generally happier than he looks in the picture, I promise.

Not accepting new clients
I help my clients navigate their experiences with relationship challenges, life transitions, losses, feelings of emptiness, feelings of loneliness, lack of direction, unexpected new life stressors, and the depression, anxiety and behavioral patterns that often appears alongside these challenges. I believe that inside many of these presenting problems and symptoms lies information needed for your growth. In therapy, we use these presenting circumstances as a jumping off point, and together, dive into a deeper exploration about how you became who you are and about how you are looking to grow.

In my 25 years of practice I have worked with, and helped, hundreds of people from different social and economic backgrounds. The commonality I have found in working with all of these people is that they come into therapy with the strong desire to talk and connect with someone who is accepting and not judgmental of them. I provide this atmosphere with the people who come in to see me, as well as provide them with competent therapeutic guidance.

“I don’t feel heard,” or “I can’t seem to do anything right,” are common feelings expressed in couples’ therapy. Another client may come confused, “People are telling me I have anger issues.” And other folks feel overwhelmed and stressed, “My life is changing dramatically and I’m not sure what to do next.” As one who has had many life experiences, I may identify with many of the feelings you are experiencing. Whether it is your relationships, feelings of anxiety or depression, or struggles with the choice’s life has put in front of you.

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.
