I understand that making the decision to seek therapy is a personal and soul-searching process. At times it can be difficult to admit that we need help and when we reach out we need a compassionate and understanding psychotherapist to listen, support, and encourage us on our journey back to wellness. It has been my privilege to be invited into the lives of some of the finest people I have ever known, my clients. Helping you find your way through difficult times and confusing circumstances is my specialty and my calling.

First off, if you're reading this because you've reached the point in your life where you're ready to do some work on you congratulations, because actually asking for that help is one of the most courageous things we can do for ourselves. The past couple years has taken a toll on our first responders, nurses, teachers, mental health professionals and so many others who seem as though they've lost their way. Have you lost that balance between your personal life and your professional life? Burned out? Have these feelings or others impacted your relationships? I'd really like to hear more and see if I can help you gain some traction!

Often, we find ourselves in repetitive patterns that can appear to betray our deepest wishes for a fulfilling life. Perhaps you have developed ways of coping that were once effective but are less helpful than they were in the past. Natural life transitions themselves, even the joyful ones, can be full of complicated feelings like loss, grief, and various anxieties. You may wonder at moments of a feeling of being inhibited or too rigidly approaching the world. We can also just feel ‘off’ yet remain unsure why or what could be the cause. This is the value of exploring the aspects of self not immediately consciously available to us.

In private practice since 2006, I continue to feel honored to get to know my clients. My hope with each person is that we will create a space together in which a unique healing relationship may unfold. To facilitate that space, I tend to focus on your feelings and how they are held in the body; on past experiences and how they relate to current feelings and relational patterns; on how relational patterns may be being repeated within the therapy; on the richness of your internal world (that emerges, for example, in dreams, daydreams, artwork, etc.); and on awareness itself, within which all of the above happens.

Life is complicated. Our history, experiences and trauma affect not only who we are but also how we interact with the world. Whether you are struggling with childhood memories, recent trauma or simply trying to find solutions to balance out life, we can process them together. Therapy is about going deep, processing the wounds that affect us and integrating them into our current selves in order to live productively and meaningfully in the world.

I'm a Swiss-trained Jungian Analyst (www.jungiananalystvt.com) who views the analytic encounter as a deep and soulful collaboration within which we examine the origins, patterns and futility of disruptive unconscious complexes and behaviors while working to strengthen the soul's authentic, meaning-making, imaginative capability - what James Hillman termed the "poetic basis of mind". To facilitate this process, I aspire to create an environment of trust and confidence in which we engage the psyche, where one's inner world of thoughts, feelings, images, fantasies & dreams can be fully expressed, explored and reflected upon with compassion & without judgment.

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.
