Do you find yourself feeling stressed, overwhelmed, or anxious? Is your child experiencing behavioral issues? Everyone needs additional support from time to time to deal with life's challenges. I view clients as experts of their own experiences and take a collaborative approach to counseling. Working together, we can develop the tools and insights needed to achieve your therapeutic goals. In addition to this person-centered approach, I utilize solutions-focused, acceptance and commitment (ACT), cognitive behavioral (CBT), and dialectical behavioral (DBT) therapeutic modalities and mindfulness tools based on clients' needs.

I believe that everyone can benefit from psychotherapy. Utilizing this process can help you to identify, develop, and implement behavioral, emotional, and cognitive change that can allow you to feel more centered and self-confident, and can provide an increased sense of empowerment to address future challenges. I view seeking help through psychotherapy as a sign of strength rather than of weakness. Taking this step often makes one feel anxious, but my experience is that once taken, people usually feel a sense of relief, combined with an increase in hopefulness. In a way, seeking help is the first step on the path to healing.

Success in life is about resilience, effective strategies, skill, and successful problem identification and solving. Relationship problems, problems at work, family problems, resolving trauma and abuse, the panic, despair, and/or rage that may be getting in your way, lack of direction in life and self-doubt, eating problems, spending problems, addictions, etc. - in short, the suffering you or a loved one is experiencing - center around the lack of these four things. I and the Graduate Residents who work with me have a proven record of helping many clients move toward the lives and the results they want.

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.

Are you struggling in your relationship, separation, divorce, or with a co-parent? Have things become more difficult for you, and you're not exactly sure how or why? Are you concerned about how the strain involved might be affecting your children? Such situations are all too common, and many otherwise effective and more-than-competent people are left wondering if they're doing everything possible, or even just enough, to meet the needs of everyone in their family. Being a parent can be difficult for anyone, and problems in relationships between parents and loved ones make it even harder.

Welcome. Our large practice has over 200 openings! We focus on the relationship with your therapist. Working through conflicts or past pain happens through experiencing, not just through merely reading or thinking about things. Gaining self acceptance and discovering how to bring an open heart to your family or intimate relationships does not come simply from acquiring an insight, or from reading a "how to" book. It starts with the healing relationship... and the only way you will find out how comfortable you might feel with your therapist is to talk to them in person. My focus in treatment is on the relationship.

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.
