Finding the right fit for a therapist is so important. You want someone you can trust, open up to about things you would never tell family or friends, and someone who can offer you some useful strategies and feedback. I am an interactive therapist. This means, I will not just sit there and have you talk for 50 minutes without any interactive feedback. Being an interactive therapist, we are having a conversation so there is give and take. I will ask you questions and perspective about what is going on for you that maybe you didn’t think about before. Collaboration is huge! I am not the expert on you. You are.

Time is of the essence. Let's face it, men are often reluctant to enter therapy as they find it stigmatizing or a sign of being weak or even skeptical of it's effectiveness. Men often take a problem-solving, solution-focused approach to life and that is not always congruent with most therapy models where the focus is on discussing feelings, exploring the past or "processing" experiences. As a cognitive behavioral therapist with an emphasis on solution focused & positive, strengths based interventions, I use a more active, action oriented & short term approach that works well for men and includes a more stoic philosophy.

I am deeply curious about people, and love helping them discover unexplored parts of themselves. Seemingly simple questions like "What do I want from life and how do I go about getting it?" become less straightforward when we realize that the answers we've previously given are not sufficient. A more satisfying relationship with the world and with ourselves is possible, and I hope to help in making progress towards that goal.

Having a confidential place to explore what is causing imbalance or stress in one's life is the starting place. Exploring one's emotional and psychological process will open the path to freeing inner turmoil, indecision and personal struggle, while also finding solutions for better communication within relationships and navigating one's life path and career. Psychotherapy enables you to break free of repetitive patterns that prevent happiness. Finding one's identity and purpose in life is an ongoing question even after one is 50 years old. It is okay to question, review and reinvent without having to stop the ship.

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.
