Ideally I work with clients that have goals and know what they want out of therapy or are willing to explore their issues in depth. Therapy can be a lot of work and it can be difficult but together we can build a good foundation for you to safely stand and build even more.

Are you a successful professional struggling with anxiety or OCD? You find yourself unable to stop worrying. You just want to control your emotions so you can enjoy life again. You know you're capable of excellence, but you feel stuck in a loop of avoidance, procrastination, and frustration. Nothing you’ve tried so far works, and you want to get rid of anxiety.

That sense of uncertainty can lead to a lack of confidence along with feelings of anxiety, hopelessness, and self-doubt. I believe that confidence begins with clarity. My collaborative approach focuses on helping you clarify your values and priorities so you can create authentic goals in your life that bring consistent results.

Becoming the best version of yourself can often take both time and practice. The tasks and challenges of the day can seem overwhelming and anxiety producing. Sometimes we find ourselves stifled in our own growth and we struggle to find inner peace and permission which allows us to move forward. It is important for us to understand as humans, that it is okay to seek guidance and an outside perspective. It is a priority of mine to provide a safe, calm and client-centered environment for clients to obtain a better perspective on themselves.

Many people long to be different, but lack that “something” that will make the difference. They feel alone, ashamed, and hopeless. Others are stuck in continuing cycles of pain and feel disconnected from life and love. This doesn’t have to be you. It can be a challenge, but peace, joy, and hope are available to you. There is a way to heal and learn to enjoy life in an ever-deepening way. My goal as a therapist is to help my clients find that "something" that will make the difference, to help them know they are not alone, and to move beyond shame and doubt. In other words, my goal is to help my clients flourish.

Whether you want to enhance your self-confidence, address unresolved relational issues, or gain a greater appreciation for life in general, therapy can guide the way and provide you with a plan for success. Such exploration is especially helpful if you find that you have been relying on unhealthy coping mechanisms to appreciate yourself, your relationships, or your life. Often, people turn to substances or unsatisfying relationships in order to distract themselves from their discontent; therapy offers the means to transform the unhealthy patterns so that true joy and contentment can be realized.

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.
