My primary approach is based on family systems. Our values, relationships, and self-image are impacted by our culture and family and it can take time and empathy to understand their impact. Therapy may take the form of structured behavioral therapy, or of a free flowing existential conversation with the goal of helping you become centered with the awareness of the forces that surround you and the ability to understand and cope with them. I will provide a calm, non-judgmental, compassionate and supportive atmosphere in which you can learn and explore. I look forward to meeting you and hearing your story.

Occasionally, it is difficult to discern our needs and desires during changing stages of life or after significant life events. During these times, we may be unable to see all our available choices. Additionally, we can experience self-defeating behaviors that are barriers to experiencing the full range of life. Sometimes this is based on learned belief systems causing faulty assumptions and cognitive distortions we have adopted about ourselves, others, and life. Through therapy, I provide counseling services to a wide variety of diverse adult clients, aiding their navigation of transforming life's obstacles into opportunities.

For 14+ years I’ve had the privilege of specializing in helping men (and couples) get un-stuck from patterns of destructive behavior and move from frustration, isolating pain and shame toward a life of renewal and satisfying relationships. Wherever your starting point, I’m honored to help you identify the underlying issues, which may have developed from dysfunctional family of origin dynamics, childhood trauma or abuse, or having never learned the coping skills to handle life’s stressors in a healthy way. Our experience of freedom and forward momentum expands when we face our hidden behaviors and choose honesty with those we love.

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.
