Have you been so overwhelmed you can't seem to find the energy to move? Are you too anxious to take the next step, or are you frustrated that you are getting upset over trivial things? Do your interactions with other people bring new struggles and pain? It's not ridiculous that you are responding to life’s challenges in a particular way. You are not a bad parent or partner. You are dealing with situations that have become a roadblock to your happiness. Deep down, we are meant to be happy, and too much daily stress can drain us of contentment and joy.

Greetings and welcome to my page! I work with people who are seeking help with life transitions, identity work (gender, sexuality, LGBTQ+, race, and all other identities), neurodiversity, relationship issues with themselves and others, and all of the emotions and anxiety that may come with. My goal is to create a space that feels warm, supportive, and encourages you to explore your emotions and challenges in a way that feels safe. I believe our challenges do not need to stop us from living our best lives, and that working towards personal goals and values is a path to change.

I use an integrative approach to therapy that addresses symptoms and behaviors, thoughts, sensations, and core beliefs. People's experiences and problems are influenced by many factors; genetics, biology, psychology, society, community, family, relationships, education, occupation, religion, and culture. I work with clients to help them reach the goals we develop together collaboratively, through person centered, strengths based, trauma-informed, cognitive, behavioral, somatic, and attachment theory work. I am primarily interested in Internal Family Systems, Cognitive Behavioral, Dialectical Behavior, and Motivational Therapies.

I help clients feel less anxious and more authentic in their relationships. I believe that many people experience struggle in their lives as a result of growing distant from their emotional compasses. I work with individual clients and couples to reconnect with these aspects of their experiences.

I believe that taking responsibility for ourselves and choosing how to respond to our circumstances is always the best path forward, regardless of the struggles we're facing. While initially uncomfortable, this approach ultimately increases self-confidence, improves relationships, and generates resilience and adaptability to life's challenges. With these concepts in mind, I work closely with clients who want to slow down, assess their situation, identify choice-points, and take actionable steps toward improving what is within their control while simultaneously learning to accept what is outside of their control.

Unresolved experiences or unmet needs can show up in our lives in many ways. From feelings of anxiety, depression, to interpersonal conflict, and even somatic symptoms, leading to imbalance and often incomplete coping that keeps us stuck. These all tell a story about what needs attention, healing, and resolution. With curiosity and compassion, we can explore your experiences, thoughts, emotions, and patterns, to gain insight and clarity, creating a map toward resolution and goals that most align with you.

My goal as a therapist is to understand a person and their situation by paying close attention to them, asking questions, and using what I have learned from past experience. I think understanding different parts of a person’s life helps create a more complete picture of what is keeping them stuck, unhappy, unaware, or unsatisfied. From there it’s possible to help make changes and face difficult circumstances. My clinical and research work has focused on anxiety, stress, PTSD, moral injury, and helping people suffering from the impact of trauma.

Life is a funny thing. And often terribly complicated. During our journey in this world, we often face challenges that can feel too big or ongoing. Whether it’s with chronic feelings of anxiousness, depression, emptiness, issues about sexual orientation, gender, or ethnicity, relationship conflict, sleep disturbances, substance misuse, school or work issues, or any combination of those, many of us struggle silently. But you don't have to. It can help to work with a therapist with a deep understanding of what it’s like with some of those struggles and who is passionate about helping others learn to thrive despite these adversities.

The ideal clients I am reaching out to are interested in participating in teletherapy, either individually or as couples. Due to a number of breaking developments, I have decided to convert my long-running practice to online therapy. I have professional counseling licenses in Vermont, MIssouri, and Illinois. I work from Missouri. Furthermore, I am seeking clients who prefer to work outside of the insurance system. I am rebooting my practice to offer high-qualify and affordable therapy. If you are interested, all you would need is Skype or Zoom (both are free downloads). I am offering 45 minute sessions for $90.

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.
