My primary focus is couple therapy. I am a trained Certified EFT Therapist. EFT stands for Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples and is far and away the best treatment for couples. I have successfully treated couples who struggled with communication issues, infidelity, childhood trauma, attachment concerns, and emotional disconnect. As an EFT therapist I have worked with many couples in which one of the partners has ADHD. I also treat trauma using EMDR therapy with individuals and in the couple setting.

I work with people across the lifespan. I specialize in working with trauma, parents and children, and couples. My approach to therapy is centered on you, the client. I rely on you to teach me about your life and tell me what it is you hope to change. We can then work together on understanding how symptoms have developed with particular attention on emotions, relationships, and your experiences. Understanding can then lead to clarity which in turn can lead to change and growth. In addition to therapy, I provide consultation to therapists with particular emphasis on Family Systems and Psychodynamic Theories.

Those that I work with describe me as receptive, kind, extremely engaged and at times even challenging. I am not a passive listener; my therapy work takes the form of an active, two-way dialogue. While my style is compassionate, informal, and truly nonjudgmental, I believe it is often essential for our default positions to be explored within a safe context. Good therapy provides the help of someone trained to see and artfully communicate what we sometimes cannot see ourselves. The therapeutic relationship must be compassionate, open-hearted, and enjoyable, yet honest.

Sometimes we can be unkind to ourselves, feel disconnected in our relationships or overwhelmed by life's problems. I believe counseling is a learning process. I will work with you to develop a compassionate understanding of who you are and new insight about areas in your life where you want support to change. I am passionate about working with individuals and families to support mental health and healing from addiction. I believe our well-being is informed by a healthy connection to family and community. In the therapy process I incorporate perspectives including relationship attachment, developing insight through mindfulness and understanding the effects of trauma.

I believe that the experiences we go through in life shape us, the people around us impact us, and I believe that the process of growing is a life long journey. I practice psychodynamic therapy informed by person centered ways of relating. That’s just a fancy way to say that I think your life impacts who you are, how you behave and feel, and that an empathetic, supportive relationship is the best place to work on the change you want to see.

Need some tools for your personal/relational toolbox? Every man, like every home, can benefit from a little attention and care. Sometimes we start to build a life that no longer fits our needs. Sometimes life crashes into the world we created. Other times, it is time that takes its toll. We might need a little tweaking and some elbow grease to do the trick. We might need to build a different life entirely. Whatever condition you find your life is in, you don't have to settle, give in, or give up. You can do this!!! I can help.

Please visit my website www.whitesalmoncounseling.com in order to request a session and to learn more about me. My approach is called "integrative" counseling which is a blend of several different counseling methods and theories. I can do brief solution-oriented counseling or longer term insight-oriented counseling which emphasizes personal growth and transformation. Each client is unique, therefore the therapy should be customized and flexible. With most clients, I focus on their entire lifestyle including physical activity, diet, sleep, work, purpose, and relationships. I'm a big fan of Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs.

When pain lingers long enough or becomes greater than our ability to keep pushing forward, we finally become willing to do whatever it takes to get relief. Psychological and emotional distress affects our sleep, our eating behaviors, use of alcohol and other drugs, our well-being, and our ability to function at home, work, and in our relationships. We're often plagued by fear, anxiety, anger, frustration, confusion, depression, self-doubt, failure, hopelessness, and even total despair.

I hold a master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Western States in Portland, OR. My primary research focus is transpersonal experiences and psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy and integration. My philosophy is one of organicity, meaning that every individual is gifted with an innate healing wisdom and capacity for wholeness. As a former earth scientist and current artist, I incorporate lessons from nature and creative expression in my work, and seek to help others reconnect with the more subtle rhythms of psyche as a woven thread in the generative fabric of life.

I have worked in private practice as a clinical psychologist for over thirty years. Most of my clients arrive after trying various types of therapy and find my “explore-in-this-moment” approach refreshing and transformational. By distinguishing old defenses from new experience and encouraging clients to explore both sides of this fork separately, personal development naturally unfolds. In the work, I normalize the human tendency to resist change while offering clients the opportunity to step beyond the world they know to explore at the edge of the unknown, the source of all change.

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.
