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.

So many of us struggle to meet the demands of daily life, all while unmet needs and unresolved pain from the past keep us hurting and stuck. I work with my clients to gain self-awareness, heal the pain of the past, and find a greater sense of empowerment in their lives. This often includes identifying self-sabotaging patterns and overcoming limiting beliefs, practical approaches that lead to concrete change. Inner work is just that: work. But healing, growth, and joy are real possibilities, and a therapist can help you get there.

I often work with individuals and couples struggling with anxiety, depression, autism spectrum disorder, and childhood trauma. I believe that change that occurs in therapy comes from forming a safe therapeutic relationship, while increasing your awareness of self, challenging your old beliefs, and establishing appropriate boundaries in relationships with others. I tend to be an active participant in therapy. I ask questions, offer observations, and look for patterns that may help provide a deeper understanding. However, I believe the client is the expert on themselves, and I trust in each individuals unique healing 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.
