My work tends to attract clients who are ready to outgrow old patterns of behavior, thought, and emotion that no longer serve them. The clients I work with have been through pain - like myself - and need someone to help them fully heal, forgive, and pull the greatness from their pain. Such pain may present as depression, anxiety, relational issues, professional stress, lack of fulfillment, anger, etc. Whatever the symptom, we will trace the fruit back to its roots, plant new seeds, starve the old, and grow the new. I LOVE my work and was born to do it. I look forward to laughing, crying, striving, growing, and learning together.

We are all coming out of a storm, in the middle of one right now, or looking at clouds beginning to form on the horizon. But the good news is that we don't have to go through any of that alone. There is help, and there is hope. The way things are today is not the way things will remain forever. Whether you are facing depression, anxiety, relationship issues, addiction, spiritual questions, life transitions, military or post-military challenges - let's make sense of this part of your story, together.

Have you been looking to talk to someone about challenges and everyday life? And have these challenges made you feel hopeless or not good enough or influenced you to use substances to cope? Overcoming these feelings might feel impossible to do and make you feel “stuck”.

Each of us faces different challenges in our lives. It can be difficult to navigate them alone. We must learn to adapt to the expected and unexpected changes in life. During these times of change, it is helpful to have empathetic and caring support to understand what you are going through and find a way to adjust. Whether it is walking through the inevitable challenges of a relationship, career transitions or facing the unexpected “curve balls” of mental health and addictions, we can work together to understand how best to face them.

Many times we navigate through the world feeling lost, alone, and even scared. We may tell ourselves that "nobody understands me," "nobody loves me," or "people have it much worst than I do, so why do I deserve to be kind to myself." Many of us tell ourselves some sort of variation of these things from time to time. Some of us may tell ourselves these statements on the daily basis. Come join me as we explore your relationship with yourself as well as your relationship with others.

I specialize in the relationships we have with ourselves, partners, children, and families. Whether a child or adult, our behaviors can always be made sense of when seen as a bid for connection, security, co-regulation, or validation. Where responses feel disruptive, defiant, shut down, withdrawn, critical, or overwhelming, they are a protest against disconnection or change, indications of a missed need, or a signal that whatever is happening is outside of a capacity to cope at that moment. I make space for everyone’s resourceful, brilliant, and sometimes limiting patterns, emotions, needs, protectors, and adaptations.

As any mental health professional would know—especially a clinical psychologist with 35 years of experience—there are no ideal clients. All clients are imperfect, struggling to make sense of their emotional confusions, flaws and wounds. Each client seeks from therapy some form of healing and deeper understanding; but the process of doing so is unclear and uncertain. The psychotherapist role is to provide a safe, open and nonjudgmental relationship in which painful and often hidden personal issues can be explored and better understood. Then the challenges of taking small, fragile steps towards healing can be faced together.

People often seek counseling or psychotherapy to change and to resolve difficulties or problems. Seeking consultation is personal and it takes some courage to initiate contact. Sometimes the impetus comes from within; sometimes your circumstances or others close to you provide a nudge. Finding the 'right' therapist for you may take some exploration. Some people simply seek to talk privately about a subject or an issue. This may involve one's direction in life, career, management role, or decision-making. Some people seek to address deeply personal thoughts, emotions, behaviors, relationships, spirituality, or other concerns.

Being a parent can be difficult for anyone, and problems in relationships between parents and loved ones make it even harder.

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.
