Authentic living can be difficult. Life's paths often do not warn of the hardships that lay ahead. Building a trusting relationship with you and creating an environment that you can explore your hardships is paramount to me. Whether you are an individual or a couple, I strive to bring to light the problematic behaviors and thought patterns that interfere in your life, in order to help you make choices that promote a more congruent and authentic living experience. Theoretically, I am psychodynamically driven with strong ties to cognitive therapies but use a variety of techniques to meet your needs.

Our time is valuable and it’s important to me that the client feels that value when ending each session. This is the client’s time to enter the space in a judgement-free, safe, and confidential setting. It’s a place to take a bit of a break from needing to be the one who has the answers in high-stress and intense scenarios. It’s also a space where to take the time - at your own pace - to process through trauma or any other stressors you may be facing. Life can be hard. But we can still find joy, fulfillment, and hope for the future. In order to get there, let’s first talk about it.

You don’t have to be sick to be Building Healthier Relationships (BHR). BHR is about developing a better toolbox to enhance relationships with yourself and others, and to provide a safe, nurturing environment for learning and healing. Life isn’t just a bowl of cherries—it also includes the PITs. In life, the PITs (Prevention, Intervention, and Treatment) provide the seeds for future cherries. While we are all victims at times, healing starts with moving from a victim mentality of blaming others to the survivor mentality of taking responsibility—not for what happened in the past, but for how to go forward.

When I meet with individuals, those who benefit the most from my services are likewise heavily motivated to change unhealthy patterns, who come to each session with specific goals and who have an obvious desire to do whatever is necessary to accomplish these goals.

You live on an emotional roller coaster. You can't keep friends or a job. Hurting yourself feels better than hurting others. You question whether your life is worth living. Perhaps you diagnosed yourself on the internet or your doctor told you that you need something called "DBT." DBT is what I live and breathe.

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.
