I’ve run therapy groups for adolescent males in residential treatment centers, groups for male sex offenders, and groups for individuals struggling with substance use.
For me, effective therapy all comes down to one idea: You must feel valued, nurtured, and supported to grow into your authentic self. You, after all, are the expert of your own life. In session, I provide a space for us to explore your struggles and support you in discovering new ways of handling them. I approach this work through Cognitive Behavioral and Solution-focused Brief Therapy frameworks.

Over the years, I have worked with men and women to relieve symptoms of stress, anger, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and other issues.
Hello, Are you tired of dealing with stress, depression, anxiety, or anger? Perhaps you are feeling frustrated and motivated to make some changes but just not sure what to do. Maybe all you need is a fresh view on things. I help people specify the positive changes they want to make and develop ways to take action. We will work together to determine what will work best for you.

I've focused my practice on substance use issues and addictive problems in people lives. For years I worked with women in eating disorders treatment utilizing an addictions model. Later I focused on men , and substance use disorders. Problems can stem from using drugs as an unproductive coping skill to a deeper more physiologically based problem. Our first job together is to find what your specific problem looks like and then find a way forward that's suited to your needs. In addition I also offer services evaluating clients for Substance Use Disorders in Family Law and Criminal cases.

Life can be hard, painful, unfair, and even horrific. Once I was told, "therapy is conflict." What they meant was we are all in conflict; with other people, loved ones, and often ourselves. A therapist's job is to bear witness to that pain, to hold it, and with our assistance help our clients move through the pain, the conflict, and find peace. Over the last ten plus years, I have gained extensive experience providing counseling to adolescents, adults, couples, and military service men and women dealing with multiple issues including substance abuse, trauma/PTSD, grief/loss, depression, and anxiety.

Men have never lost the desire to explore. This desire frequently leads men to seek alternative ways to navigate the spinning world around them including their own potential. Chances are, if you’re exploring this website, you’re feeling a disconnect between the life you envision and what you’re actually experiencing. And you’ve realized this disconnect shows up in the form of emotional distress, up and down relationships, and/or doubt about where your life is taking you. Maybe it's time to consider a new road-map. An unconventional one.

Most men have not had another man with whom to discuss personal matters.
Most people who come to therapy are trying either to deal with a symptom-depression, anxiety, stress, etc.- or they are struggling with some relationship, or even struggling with oneself- one's own history, or a bad habit. Therapy always begins with your presenting problem. People develop strategies to deal with life, but sometimes what worked before isn't working anymore. A good therapist is always committed 100% to your best interest. Once I have earned your trust, it becomes easier to accept a new idea, a new approach, or a new strategy. Sometimes all it takes is a new perspective.

I work with both individuals and groups, and have particular interest in issues affecting men , survivors of religious oppression, trauma, addictions, grief and loss, and supporting gay men and lesbians in their quest for maximum fulfillment in their lives.
Freud is credited with stating that two things really matter in life: love and work. I help people find greater satisfaction with a) their relationships with themselves and others, and b) what they do to make meaning in their lives. I believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship to help you maximize your spiritual, physical, and emotional potential. Operating from an orientation which draws primarily on a combination of contemporary psychoanalytic, attachment, and neurobiological perspectives, I am fully committed to walking with you on your journey toward greater satisfaction and fulfillment.

I work with individual men struggling with stress, anger, depression, anxiety, fatherhood, or masculinity.
Something isn't working in your relationship. Maybe the conflict is leaving you hurt or hopeless. Or there's been an affair, and you can't get back to normal. Perhaps you're an entrepreneur, and the stress of the business is poisoning the relationship. You might even be on the brink of calling it quits-unsure if you really want to stay or go. It can be easy to get overwhelmed and discouraged. I offer Gottman Method Couples Therapy, a research-based and goal-oriented approach to reducing conflict, improving communication, rebuilding trust and intimacy, and healing your relationship.

I work with men and women struggling with shame and pain from past experiences.
Shame sucks, suffocates, stunts our growth, and kills our creativity. It makes us hide and deny who we are. It keeps us in the shadows hidden by loneliness and isolation. The truth is that each of us has a deep-seated desire to know others and be known by others. "Ubuntu" is a Bantu (South African) word that means "I am because we are," or "In being known by you - I know myself." I want to create a safe space where you can explore, know, and understand your whole self, even the parts that you're sometimes afraid to look at. I want to help you remove shame, fear, loneliness, and guilt so that you can manifest your authentic self.

I am deeply committed to helping men and women overcome addiction, heal trauma and thrive in the face of mood disorders.
We all just want to feel comfortable in our own skin. We want to live our lives feeling inspired, happy, and purposeful. Somewhere along the way we may have sought out external things to achieve this goal: drugs, alcohol, relationships, jobs, social circles, money, status, etc. These things work for a little while…until they don’t. We finally get to a place where we realize we need help turning inward. We become willing to examine our trauma and core wounds and heal from what is in the way of us emerging into our fullest selves. This is where transformation begins.

I have been successful in the past with all manner of clients through many different settings – male , female, transgender, heterosexual, LGBTQ+, in inpatient, outpatient, technician, assessment, or even consulting settings. I also really enjoy working with teens and adolescents, since early brain-based interventions help everyone succeed even more in their lifetime. I find that my personality and style seem to fit best with clients who feel they are trapped in a negative routine, have no one with which to talk, or no way out of the situation from which they suffer.

I work with both men and women, adolescents, young adults, and adults.
I view my role as a therapist much like that of a guide as well as a teacher. I work to help clients build and maintain the necessary tools they already have existing within themselves and lead clients to new discoveries of living life in a more balanced way. Through utilizing existing tools, as well as learning new possibilities of living, clients are able to reach their full potential for prolonged success. The foundational approaches I choose to work from are person centered, and mindfulness based. I also utilize experiential forms of therapy.

I work with artists experiencing writer's block, men with relationship issues, and those who have experienced spiritual trauma.
At the foot of our beds sit two gremlins—fear and apathy. Whereas fear tells us to stay at home because life is too scary, the other says “why bother?” The key to therapy is to overcome these two gremlins so that we can show up to our own lives. Are we really living the lives that we want to live? Are we able to take the first step? ...And that first step is the hardest- finding someone to trust with your most locked away thoughts. A collaborative, non-judgmental, and honest approach to counseling is the only way to an authentic connection.

I work with a diversity of individuals, couples and groups struggling with a variety of issues, including anxiety, depression, grief and loss, male /female infertility, relationship challenges, addiction and spiritual struggles.
Do you feel like you are stuck? Do you feel trapped, unable to move past painful experiences in your past? Do you feel mired in negative feelings in the present? Do you find yourself repeating the same destructive patterns over and over? You are not alone. Addressing these questions is the first step towards positive change and growth. I believe counseling is often more than seeking to feel better - it is a journey. It is a way to become the Author of your own Story. Therapy can offer an avenue towards self-empowerment, fulfillment and a deeper sense of meaning in your life.
