It is my belief that people are always in a state of becoming - changing and evolving. Along the way of life, challenges arise to help us learn and grow. I aim to utilize strengths and provide clarity to certain life challenges, past or present, in order for clients to heal and continue on their path of self discovery. I have over a decade of experience in various clinical and community settings that have helped me grow professionally and personally. I strive to co-create an authentic connection with my clients in order for them to feel at ease, to feel seen, and be able to explore areas in life they want to work on.

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.

Are you struggling through a high conflict divorce or custody arrangement? Is the ex-partner using your child as a weapon to lash out at you in increasingly odd ways? Does it seem like there is nowhere to turn as Guardian ad Litem, Judges, inexperienced counselors and CPS social workers seem uninterested in examining the root causes? Does your ex-spouse refuse to productively co-parent? Is your child now "parroting" their words and hatred to you? If so, you may be suffering from one of three stages of Parental Alienation. In severe forms, your child even may refuse to see you and appears to be programmed by the other parent.

I specialize in the treatment of trauma related disorders, and I approach the treatment of trauma as a chronic illness to help my clients confront it's lasting impacts with compassion. This process gives us a chance to understand what we adapted to, how we adapted, and how that is showing up in life in the present. That understanding gives us more freedom to notice ourselves with less judgment. From there we can make more sense of confusing or conflicting feelings, and build a more grounded sense of who we are to navigate our relationships in a way that heals us as we go. I work with adults, parents, families, and teenagers.

My clients come from a variety of backgrounds and ages seeking healing and understanding of their relationships and meaning in life. Some suffer from substance addiction, others from work stress, and many from wounded relationships in their family. Their goals are redemption of their suffering, building new ways of relating to others and clearing the pain of the past from clouding the joy of the present.

In an overly connected world, we sometimes just need to be heard. Meeting with someone who listens deeply can uncover the answers that live within our hearts. The therapeutic process allows you to navigate life's transitions (identity, relationships, career, relocation, retirement, grief and loss) with grace. In time, you can bring your whole self to all of your relationships (intimate, family, friends, colleagues). You can also pursue purposeful action in your education, career, community and spiritual life. Living is the process of enduring change. Building resilience allows us to be enriched by that ongoing change process.

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.
