Although my therapeutic approach is an eclectic style to counseling, I also care about my clients, and utilize in-depth listening skills to first identity the problem, and then help you understand how that problem personally affects you and the ones you love. Then together we can find solutions that work. In this region, I use video therapy, which has become a viable alternative to face-to-face therapy. It provides a secure and convenient method of processing your life in the privacy of your own home. This is a proven and successful option for many of my national clients.

In my experience as a counselor, I have come to understand how unique each of us truly are. We each come with our own unique experiences, relationships, wounds and beliefs that have been taught to us throughout our life. However, what is also true about each of us is that there is goodness and strength inherent just in who we are and who we are made to be. As such, I seek to walk with each individual I work with to uncover these strengths, untangle the past, and to heal from these wounds and negative beliefs we might be carrying. I work with individuals seeking to overcome anxiety, trauma, abuse or any other wounds in their lives.

Stress can come into our lives at the most unexpected and inconvenient times. We may try to deny the effects of stress in our lives until it becomes overbearing. When this happens, we tend to have developed behaviors that become more damaging than they are helpful – these are maladaptive behaviors. It can be hard to pick up the pieces and begin rebuilding our lives. Our thoughts and actions can get in our way. We can get stuck with our unhelpful actions and need help learning how to replace these behaviors.

Every person has issues that they could use help dealing with at some point in their lives. Maybe the problem is depression, anxiety, self-esteem, or confidence. Maybe the problem is a mixture of many things or you might not even understand what the problem is or where it has come from. Whatever it may be we all want to work toward optimal functioning and well being but to do this we sometimes need assistance in working though issues of the mind or emotions. Things can get better and things can get clearer, even if it may not seem that way right now.

Many people are often taught from an early age to stuff feelings. It takes courage to challenge the status quo and start the therapy process. If you're in a transitional time, whether phase of life change, a move, shift in identity, or you're generally struggling to feel stable it is often hard to know where to go next. While this is normal and scary, you don't have to go through the process alone. I work with my clients to acknowledge unhelpful patterns and find healthier ways to execute being the best version of themselves. I work with veterans, healthcare professionals and parents.

Have you been looking to talk to someone about challenges and everyday life? 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 and make you feel stuck. Many people engage in therapy to achieve peace and stop the cycle of feeling hurt. They want a therapist who can relate to them on a human level.

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.
