I believe that our struggles with mental health can often make us think we are outside looking in. Different. Broken. The Black Sheep. When we learn how to change our view of our unique challenges or experiences they can become strengths and lose their power over us. My focus is to help individuals increase their awareness of their own wealth of internal strength and ability to make the changes in their lives they want. We will achieve this through a collaborative approach which will bring elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, ACT, SFBT and existential philosophy into the amazing ability you already have to grow.

Waitlist for new clients
One of the hardest things as a father is to watch my children go through difficult things and at times feel completely helpless. As they navigate life and the challenges this cna bring I find a deeper appreciation for the allies in our lives that can support them and us (mom and me) along this journey. Additionally, the more we focus on their needs it is equally a challenge to remember that there is an "US" in our marriage that exists and we have to nurture it with the same drive and care. It can be a lot, at WLP we seek to walk alongside Families, Couples and individuals seeking support through life's challenges.

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.
