There exists in all of us a wound or hurt that we have learned to either live with, or maybe disguise-a protective and gracious attempt at avoiding pain. Therapy is a unique setting to safely explore not only past wounds, but how they impact your present life and relationships. In this way, we can learn to have compassion for the parts of us that have not felt cared for and move towards healing and new ways of relating to self and others.

I am a Christian therapist trained in the interpersonal/relational psychoanalytic theory. I've also engaged both object relational and cognitive behavioral theories through varied clinical experiences. I've mostly trained under Dan Allender. I am trained well to serve clients that desire to face issues of sexual abuse/trauma, narrative, and relational dynamics within relationships. I'm also able to help clients think through potential cultural issues that can also have impact on ones dealing with issues of abuse, story, and relationship.

Life can be a series of struggles and even failures. Navigating these can feel daunting and overwhelming at times, but it is not impossible. I believe life should not be lived alone and we periodically need someone to come along side us and guide us through these difficult times. It is also important to celebrate victories and accomplishments when we make it out of a tough time.

Most clients come to me from the military and emergency services but I also work with many relationships as they struggle with anxiety and mild depression, largely stemming from work-related stress and a lack of work-life balance. They are highly motivated and self-aware, acknowledging their need for help and actively seeking it. They have a supportive network but feel isolated in their experiences, yearning for a space to express their feelings without judgment. They also want to explore underlying issues contributing to their mental health challenges, such as perfectionism and fear of failure.

I specialize in working with people who are struggling with substance use concerns and problems related to past traumatic events. I also see clients for problems related to depression, anxiety, divorce, and other concerns. With all clients, I maintain a "systemic" view: that is, understanding your concerns, and their solutions, in their context. For most, context includes your family, work, cultural values, spiritual beliefs (or lack of), and individual history.

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’m Nitish with 20+ years practicing Counseling. My calling started during my 3rd year as a pre-med student. Something in me wanted to figure out why I felt like I had a chip on my shoulder. This lead me to investigating Psychology that became my vocation thereafter. Understanding why humans feel, think, and act in certain ways helped me to understand myself and people around me. I could feel God had given me new tools to learn about His pinnacle of creation. It was like gaining a window into my soul. After all, by definition, Psychology is the study of the soul.

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.

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.

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.

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.
