I specialize in relationships and men's issues , often the two are related.
Does your relationship need re-groovin? Are you not understanding each other? Are you speaking to each other from your head and not from your heart? Feeling alone and disconnected in your relationship can be painful. Good memories can fade and be replaced by more challenging ones. Are you ready to try a different way? My intention is to help you find clarity and connection amidst the challenges. I work with couples and individuals who want more harmony in their relationship. Relationship work can be an exploration into your values and beliefs.

I help teens and adults - with a focus on boys' and men's issues - to develop mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual fitness, to successfully navigate academics, work, family, relationships, Christian faith, and challenging life dynamics.
You “can’t take it anymore”! You're at a crossroad or hit a wall. You’ve been trying and trying to fix it… that constant source of frustration, disappointment, and heartache. You’ve been trying to make it right, make it better, make it go away, make it work! What seems natural and easy to others is allusive, confusing, discouraging and overwhelming to you. It’s time for a change. It’s within the dynamic of human relationship where we become who we’re meant to be, do what we’re designed to do, and arrive at our destinations of longing. The greatest healing, growth, and success result from human connection.

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.
