I love to work with those who are struggling and trying to find their way. Though I'm trained in addressing a wide scope of concerns, I particularly enjoy helping individuals in late adolescence and early adulthood overcome obstacles and build independence as they pursue personal and vocational goals. It is a great joy to see my clients work toward the life they want.

It is no secret that the past few years have been difficult for everyone. With the issues that our young people face in these unprecedented times mental health has become one of the foremost priorities. COVID-19, school closures, a divisive political climate and social media have contributed to a decline in mental health throughout the world. It is at times like these when young people need to learn who they are, how they can show up for themselves, and live with purpose in a world that feels uncertain. My goal is to come alongside and empower young people to live life fully in a world where they feel a great deal of uncertainty.

Life is hard-I imagine that is the last thing that you want to hear right now. But unless you assume a different perspective, you may miss some important things-like hope, grace, and compassion. In my 30 plus years as a licensed professional counselor, I have had the honor of walking with individuals and couples through life crises and transitions, seeing them with fresh eyes, an understanding heart, and strategic interventions (or behavioral “experiments”) as they discover a new life of purpose and meaning, with renewed personal energy and deepened relationships.

My practice is limited to males 11 and up. Focus areas include boyhood, adolescence, masculinity and sexual health. We pretend boys don't experience the same degree of emotions compared to girls but in reality we don't teach boys how to identify, process and express emotions. It's little wonder substance abuse, domestic violence, violent crimes, road rage, communication/relationship problems and silent emotional suffering are at epidemic levels. Anger, depression, anxiety, poor self-esteem are rampant.

Life is difficult and unpredictable. It is often filled with pain and suffering which can leave us feeling alone and misunderstood. Perhaps, this describes you. In your life, maybe recently or long ago, you’ve experienced loss, trauma, unfulfilling relationships, disappointment in yourself or others, accompanied by feelings of shame, guilt, or inadequacy. And perhaps, you’ve tried to talk to someone about your struggles, but you felt it was too much for that person to hear or for you to share at that time. Then again, maybe you’ve never spoken to anyone about the burden you carry which has inflated your feelings of loneliness.

With over 16 years experience as a licensed therapist, I'm passionate about building rapport and, from this basis, providing high-quality treatment. In working with couples, I maintain a good therapeutic relationship with both clients and take a balanced approach where each partner is empowered to speak up and share in their progress. When working with anxiety, I assist clients in defining what anxiety is and what it does so that they can recognize and challenge it as they develop new coping skills. In treating trauma, I help clients feel empowered to step into their work before starting Brainspotting or EMDR sessions.

Living with a chronic health condition or pain can be overwhelming, scary, and confusing. At times you don't recognize yourself anymore, and you wonder what new limitations the day might bring. You know these struggles are somehow behind your depressed and anxious feelings, and you feel alone...that no one understands. Right now, you have more questions than answers, but you know you'd do anything to get your life back. The roller coaster of doctor visits, medication changes, and emotions is becoming too much and you're ready to get off the roller coaster and feel grounded again.

Adults with ADHD tend to have challenges that keep them from attaining their personal life dreams and career success goals. Some of these challenges are distractibility, impulsivity, poor time management, procrastination, overwhelm, disorganization, and clutter. Adults with ADHD also tend to struggle more than others in their careers, in their love and family relationships, with friends, and financially. The good news is that there is hope and resources available to create a more successful, happy, and prosperous life. I specialize in providing ADHD individual coaching, ADHD couples & retreats and webinars for the treatment of ADHD.

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.
