It is tough times right now! People are struggling. I am here to give you the tools to feel better and to heal whatever you have gone through. I help people work through addiction recovery, anxiety, depression and difficult relationships. Having a strength-based approach that focuses on wellness and getting unstuck from repeating cycles is the approach I take. I work with anxiety, OCD, depression, addiction (alcohol, sexual, drug, spending, overeating, and work). I also work with chronic pain issues from a place of helping people express emotion. I do both in person and teleconferencing counseling at this time.

When life becomes overwhelming it can be difficult to know where to turn. I offer a safe place for individuals and couples to explore these difficult times and start to make sense out of the chaos. Going to therapy does not mean you are weak or your relationship is going to end. It means just the opposite. It means you are taking the time to put yourself and or your relationship first. Counseling gives you the freedom to explore who you are without judgment or criticism and to start to understand yourself on a deeper more compassionate level.

Maybe you already know you have a problem with alcohol or drugs, or maybe someone else thinks so. I start by asking what you think. The question is not what label to give you, but what, if anything, you might be considering changing. You might be surprised to hear me ask what is good about your use. What are your reasons to keep doing what you already do? And then we can look at what is not so good about it, from your point of view. No change is going to happen that does not make sense to you.

I help people struggling with attachment difficulties and unprocessed pain find relief and live more effective, connected, and fulfilling lives. The people that I treat in my practice show up because something in their lives is no longer working (they may not even know what exactly that something is yet), and they are tired of suffering and are ready to try something different. They are committed to exploring their pain and ready to take action to make their lives better. Together, we will uncover the underlying attachment patterns, beliefs, past experiences and emotions that keep you stuck, and help you find ways to move forward.

I am accepting new clients! Are you seeking honest and useful feedback? Stuck in thoughts, feelings or behaviors that are causing distress? Are "blind spots" causing conflict in a relationship? My counseling practice is guided by 3 core beliefs: (1) Past or current emotional stress often creates imbalance in behavior, feelings or perception. (2) Awareness of the origins of imbalance and how it manifests in your relationship with yourself or others is necessary for change. (3) Sharing thoughts & feelings with a compassionate listener who can facilitate a positive shift in perspective and behavior is a good predictor of success.

Psychology works because it is a way to help people understand their problems and correct or change so that they can live more healthy or satisfying lives. Many people come for therapy if they are experiencing problems with depression, anxiety or relationship issues. Some other common problems that I help treat are problems with work injuries, sleep, weight, stress, trauma, and sexual problems. These problems can be greatly helped through therapy. I employ an eclectic approach to therapy, meeting each individual’s needs rather than using one form of treatment.

Are you feeling you'd like to talk with someone privately? Are you afraid no one could understand you? Are your feelings about yourself holding you back, and you feel stuck? This is a time when naturally one does not know what to do. And, the choice is often having to take a leap and do something about it. This a a natural fear for many people. Opening up can seem frightening. A good therapist knows that. Many who take the step for therapy find that is was the right move.

Therapy is a unique setting to safely explore not only past wounds, but how they impact your present life and relationships.

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.
