I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor. I entered this profession because I enjoy helping people. Anxiety, depression, and unstable mood are among the most common issues people bring to counseling with me. I like helping people learn about ALL scientifically validated approaches available to them. Many experience brighter and more stable mood, better sleep, and a greater sense of inner peace. I also like helping clients achieve their personal and career goals. I have over 20 years experience working with adults, families, and children. I genuinely enjoy assisting my clients, and I especially love working with kids.

I work well with individuals who are seeking change. Post-traumatic stress and anxiety can be debilitating. I offer trauma-informed therapy for individuals who desire post-traumatic growth. I will help re-develop a sense of hope through processing fears and diminishing the severity of the fight or flight response. Resilience can be strengthened by empowering the survivor with healthy self-management skills and improving self-worth. I am empathetic and goal-oriented.

Joseph Campbell once said, "The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are." As a therapist, I believe there can be no greater goal than to help you become your authentic self. By acknowledging you as the expert in your own life, and not imposing my own ideas of who you "should" be, my role is to help you work through any old survival strategies, reactive patterns, and physical/emotional traumas that prevent you from being the person you were meant to be, and living the life you were meant to live.

Congratulations on reaching out for help! I've been there and know it's not easy. In fact it's scary as hell! The fact is everyone on this planet struggles. It's the human condition and we all need help from time to time. I guarantee you that if I'm having problems with my plumbing, I call a plumber. I've been a therapist now for 30 years and can safely say I've pretty much seen it all. Most of us think our problems are really different than everyone else's, but I assure you we're all much more alike than we are different. The truth is everyone just wants to be happy, feel at peace, and have successful loving relationships.

Life is challenging in 2024. Many of us learn to worry incessantly and criticize ourselves. Many of us battle anxiety and depression. Many of us are looking for answers, acceptance and validation. The search for serenity can leave us exhausted and bewildered. The pressures of a modern life can lead to loneliness and sadness. Fortunately, we do not have to face life's most daunting moments alone.

Perhaps you’ve tried a few therapists and weren't able to connect. Maybe you never saw yourself represented, or that therapy felt too manualized. You’ve pushed off therapy for a while now, not because you're too prideful to get the support you need, but because the help you are looking for hasn’t centered your beliefs, identity(ies) and understanding of well-being. You want support that centers all of who you are, and you are looking for authentic, experienced care that can help you gain clarity, confidence, and contentment.

Navigating transition and uncertainty alone can be daunting and generate fears that keep us stuck. We can feel trapped in our heads, and whether change is something we are actively pursuing or is a condition we feel is forced upon us, it can be difficult to find a way out, especially all on our own! Therapy can be a place to unburden ourselves and share our minds with someone who can provide an outside perspective and help us move forward with purpose. It can also be especially helpful for people who struggle with vulnerability and shame and provide a safe space to express and process emotions and struggles.

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.
