Welcome. My name is Allie. I specialize in couples/marriage counseling, anxiety disorders, men's issues and adolescent issues. With couples therapy, we work together to identify gaps in communication and fix persistent relational patterns that leave both parties feeling: "this argument is going nowhere." For individuals, we will explore unconscious patterns/behaviors in relationships with others and with yourself, and by doing so we will lessen the level of distress/anxiety you are finding yourself or your relationship in. I help all patients gain a life-long ability to self-reflect internally and build more connected lives.

Specialties: men's issues , trauma and couples.
I've worked in the mental health field since 2000 with various populations (individuals, couples and families), however, my specialties include men's studies, pornography/sexual addiction, relationship health for married couples & EMDR. I especially find men experience challenges in life and lack the means or opportunities to be supported, validated heard. I strive to be practical and direct, yet effective in fostering change. Whether guiding couples in marriage prep or in marital strain, I develop understanding of relationships, creating an open, honest and safe communication style which fosters intimacy through challenges.

Other specialties include men's issues , 12 step recovery, relationship issues, work/life stress, anxiety, and depression.
Sometimes it can be helpful to talk through issues with someone giving you their undivided attention. It can also be helpful to explore other forms of creative expression when talking isn't enough. I offer these avenues for growth to my clients. Clients I work with often discuss relationship issues, stress related to school or work, feelings of depression and anxiety, and substance abuse and addiction issues.

Welcome to my art therapy and psychotherapy practice page. For over 25 years I have successfully worked with adults and young people seeking change. I am equally at ease with traditional talk therapy, art therapy, or an integration of the two and collaborate with my clients to establish the safest approach to realize personal intentions. My engagement style is gentle and encouraging, yet more thought-provoking and compassionately challenging when it is advantageous to the therapy.

I love working with adults who feel stuck for any number of reasons. My approach to therapy is informed by two main ideas: first, that people are innately wired to heal, and second, that these healing capacities emerge when we feel safe. I devote part of my work to researching how people heal and transform and I do this at the AEDP Institute. I have been fortunate enough to publish and present my work in peer-reviewed academic journals, academic conferences and clinical trainings (e.g., AEDP Immersion) across the US and Canada.

In an age of ambivalence, avoidance and anesthesia, I recognize a need to slow down, be centered and get mindful of who we are to then decide what we are doing, where we are going and why. For many (men in particular!), this numbness extends beyond what we do and seeps into our emotional, mental and spiritual lives as we search for ways to be braver, bolder, and better. I employ a balanced mind-body-spirit approach to support those facing “substance” abuse struggles, anxiety/depression, life changes, career moves, relationship issues, grief and general life transitions.

I FOCUS ON MEN"S COUNSELING. Are you a man who feels stuck between anger and numbness? or feeling depressed and don’t know how to deal with it? Do you wish something would change in your relationships, but you don't know what to do or worried it might end? Whether married or divorced, are the roles of a father not what you expected? Men tend to isolate themselves when what they need is someone to talk to. Even if there isn’t a major life event or crisis, if a man has not had a warm, positive, well-attuned relationship with a father, a male therapist can help you uncover what's missing since childhood.

The ideal client for me is a young, mature, or elder adult who is motivated by their suffering or by their character to learn something new about themselves, to resolve some issue which is causing them anguish or anxiety, or both. Therapy is as much an educational process as a healing process. Both learning and healing are key elements of successful therapeutic collaboration. I am suited to treat any of the specialties designated in my profile. I have network of colleagues through which I make referrals for issues that require specialists' attention such as severe addictive issues or veterans' PTSD.

Are you mourning the loss of your partner through divorce or death? Or struggling with your own serious medical diagnosis? You’ve probably been reading books on loss and grief but you’re still stuck in feelings of anxiety and depression and lay awake most nights. You’ve tried burying yourself in work, going to the gym, and have even started new projects around the house but nothing’s changed. You don’t want to burden anyone with your feelings of sadness… and most people seem to think you should be over it by now.

Do you wish you were living a life other than your own? Do you hold yourself to a high standard but find yourself unsure if you are on the right path? Maybe you want to change but don’t know what else is out there. Perhaps you do know but are afraid to take the risk. Feeling adrift in life can be scary and unsettling. It can also be incredibly lonely.

Any form of psychotherapy must be guided by one overarching purpose: to help you achieve your goals. Treatment alleviates distress and results in greater inner strength. Accordingly, therapy must be a constructive experience, and as work proceeds, you'll experience advances in your sense of well-being. On the whole, expect an upward trend of hope and greater self-esteem. Your capacity for intimacy with others and your sense of fulfillment will increase, concomitant with a decrease in suffering and pain. Psychotherapy helps to establish a profound, meaningful and healthy sense of connectedness with your world and those in it.

“Hurt people, hurt people.” Although not always intentional or malicious, hurting people hurt others. Whether you realize it or not, you have experienced things that may have impacted you negatively. They may still be impacting you negatively. You may not be aware of those feelings, you’ve bottled them up, or you haven’t felt safe and comfortable sharing them. That can be why you’re being harmful or being harmed, knowingly or unknowingly. That can be why you haven’t been able to become the person, partner, friend, parent, sibling, employee, etc., that you want to be. It’s not easy, but you have to address those feelings.

You want emotional intimacy but disappointment and blame distance you. You withdraw or act out sexually to avoid pain? Do romantic obsessions or resentment towards your partner/spouse fuel your inability to connect and feel loved? I reach out from my decades of experience with individuals and couples who are intimacy avoidant and I help resolve your past and present blocks to intimacy by facilitating the examination and change of life-long patterns in my safe office space. My willingness to listen, to observe, to enter your world with a structured understanding is my therapeutic strength that has transferred to online sessions.

Men's Issues Therapists

Is therapy for men different than it is for women?

Therapeutic treatments and types are the same for men as they are for women, with the same protocols followed and the same strategies employed. Discussing one’s feelings and emotions is an integral part of most therapies, and some men find doing so more challenging. Therapists can help clients through the process; some specialize in treating men for this reason.

How do you encourage a man to go to therapy?

It’s helpful to express your concern and love for the person while framing therapy as a tool for improving their life. Offering specific examples of how an individual’s behavior affected either himself or others should be done with compassion and with empathy. It may be useful to devise a game plan—breaking the process down into parts, such as finding a therapist, making appointments, and looking into insurance coverage.

How can men prepare for therapy?

Men can prepare for therapy by approaching the process with an open mind, being willing to talk about their challenges, and giving treatment the time to work. Before a session, an individual may want to reflect on how they’ve felt since the last session and what’s happened in their lives. It can be useful for men who struggle to recall their emotional states to write down notes between sessions about their response to a given event or how they were feeling at a particular time.

What should men know about the process of therapy?

One of the most common reasons men don’t seek therapy is the notion that there’s something wrong with them if they do. Men should know that just because they’re seeking therapy doesn’t mean they’re mentally ill or damaged in some way. In the same way people work on their bodies through exercise or a craft through practice, therapy can be a way to improve the mental and emotional skills needed to be productive and effective partners, employees, and people in all realms of life.
