Achieving “balance” within one’s life can be a challenge. The day-to-day frustrations and stresses build, creating fertile ground for many mental health conditions. The stresses also reduce our capacity to cope and problem-solve as we once did. My approach to therapy is collaborative. You are the expert of you. Let’s use our combined skills to identify your path to “balance.” Taking the step to start therapy can be a daunting. I understand. Lets walk together.

When people face personal problems or internal conflict, they benefit from taking time to talk with an experienced psychologist. It is an opportunity to talk confidentially with someone, outside of your family and friends, who is trained in mental health diagnostics and problem solving. Usually self esteem regulation, anger, anxiety, unhappiness, family conflict or maladaptive coping with substance misuse bring people for help. The purpose of counseling is to resolve conflict and go forward facing life's challenges with more strength and maturity.

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.
