My areas of interest include motivation, relationships, self esteem, men's issues, & identity.
Navigating life’s circumstances can be complicated and challenging. Although we must find the strength to get past the roadblocks in our lives, we don’t have to do it alone. Therapy can help us get to know ourselves so that we can find new ways to respond when the pressure of modern living becomes too much. My aim as a therapist is to partner with you on a journey of self-discovery so that you can find satisfaction and thrive. I believe therapy can help us uncover subtle beliefs and patterns that shape our daily experiences. With greater awareness, we gain the tools to enact positive change and remodel relationships.

I specialize in concerns including anxiety, depression, low self esteem, LGBTQ issues, grief, relationship difficulties, sexuality, gender, life transitions, and men's issues.
Healing and transformation rests on the trust and support of the therapeutic relationship. I prioritize building an authentic relationship where you feel safe to be vulnerable without judgment. I aim to help you work through the core of your issues, not just a quick fix. I specialize in body-oriented psychotherapy that includes analysis of both the mind and body to deepen your understanding of your issues and to facilitate change. Working with the body can engender more meaningful awareness, symptomatic relief and transformation.

One of the greatest gifts therapy has to offer is the empowerment and flexibility to move through and beyond your experiences. Together, therapy can be a space for reflection, discovery, skill building and greater understanding of self and the world around you. Exploring the pillars of a person's journey should be a holistic experience. As a practice, respecting one's personal, environmental, religious, spiritual and cultural beliefs can be a pathway to establish rich conversations while forming a relationship.

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.
