Over the past 2 decades I have been fortunate to work in different settings and environments, treating individuals, families and groups with a variety of different conditions and presentations. This experience has enabled me to understand and believe that the individual has the ability to make positive adjustments and subsequent change. Throughout my professional experience I have always provided a safe environment and a relationship with individuals based on trust, respect and unconditional positive regard. One of my aims is to enable you to freely and honestly express your emotions, feelings and concerns.

With over 20 years of mental health experience and 14 years practicing therapy, I have learned to specialize in relationship/couples therapy and work as well as individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, and other life and circumstantial issues. If you are looking to repair, strengthen, regain connection, improve intimacy, or generally work on your relationships or your mental health I can help you find that path. My experience has also led me to work with trauma in a systemic and experiential way and utilize EMDR, mindfulness and trauma informed interventions.

I'm a licensed mental health counselor. In therapy, I focus on restoring a sense of balance and self-efficacy for my clients. I like to demystify therapy as much as I can: therapy works best when you know that the person cares about you and makes your best interests the priority. My goal is to be honest and considerate so that can happen. Get to know me and we'll work together to rediscover and develop the best parts of you.

When someone comes for psychotherapy its because of emotional pain that feels unbearable. Everyone has blindspots, and a crisis can be growth producing when caring, understanding, and respect are offered during vulnerable times of life. To my way of thinking, by strengthening self- awareness of the depth and breadth of the intricacies of one's own emotions and thoughts, there is tremendous help in facing the challenges of living. As psychotherapy continues past a beginning point, discoveries and learning occur through a joint effort, gathering a fuller appreciation of the events in life that have led to a crucial point.

I consider the counseling relationship to be a partnership in which one seeks an understanding of the problems that are affecting one's life and learns of strategies that will help alleviate them. Problems are manifested in anxiety, depression, or other stress-related problems such as sleeplessness, tension and the inability to enjoy life, family or activities. ALL are attempts to cope with problems. Since this partnership is based on trust and mutual respect, it is important that the client meet a professional who can best address those problems, and has the experience to know when and how to implement changes.

What the well-meaning people who try to help don’t know is that you need to try something different.

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.
