My practice is oriented towards helping men, young and old, face the challenges of being a man in today's world: learning to be emotionally intimate in relationships, balancing the demands of work and family, managing anger and other destructive impulses, learning to be a more involved and loving father, and finding one's true path in life. Beginning therapy is not easy for many men. I use my extensive experience in working with men to offer both the compassion and directness men need to find the courage within themselves to face these challenges.

I try and help people increase the "quality" of their lives which often means helping people whose thinking/behavior and feelings don't seem to connect.I use many different approaches to therapy and draw upon numerous orientations if helpful to the client's goal of change. I strongly advocate for the mind/body connection; healthy mind helps the body be healthier. Past issues are of importance but don't have to be the major focus. I can help you with depression, anxiety, relationship issues and PTSD. I am proud to be a Tricare provider.

It was Ralph Waldo Emerson who once said that, "What lies behind us and what lies before us matters little compared to what lies within us". For more than 30 years I have focused on helping children and adults, individually, in couples, in families and groups achieve strength, peace and confidence by improving conflict resolution, communication, stress and anxiety, anger management skills, child and adolescent behavioral problems, and parenting skills as well as improved functioning and decreased emotional distress related to depression, self-esteem, post-traumatic stress and bipolar disorders. Through a combination of interpersonal, cognitive-behavioral and motivational approaches I have seen my clients make meaningful and lasting transformations in both emotional and behavioral dimensions. I provide evidence-based, focused, and time-limited treatment with documented results for mental health, behavioral health and substance use issues.

Anything that’s human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable. When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary. - Fred Rogers. Life can be hard and overwhelming at times. Life can be heavy. Sometimes, we don't even know why it's heavy. All of those feelings are valid and okay. You don't have to carry that weight alone. I am here to meet you where you are at and help you identify realistic goals to help improve or maintain your quality of life.

Heart racing, hands sweating, mouth dry, barely breathing, another tension headache with achy neck and shoulders - that's all before breakfast. Anxiety is felt emotionally, but also physically. It used to be "normal worry" about "important things". Now, more and more, you find yourself "white knuckling" through your day. You dread bedtime. Every night brings the misery of staring at the ceiling with a racing mind, knowing that you will be exhausted the next day (when you need to get a million things done). Your doctor wants to put you on medication. But you're the type of person who'd rather get a handle on this without meds.

I work with individuals, couples, families, and children addressing everything from everyday stress to chronic anxiety & depression. Many clients simply want an objective and trusted listener. I offer a comfortable and private setting for you to settle in and talk about your concerns. Maybe you're contemplating a change and not sure about your path; a new job, starting, ending, or recharging a relationship, confronting someone or resolving old hurts. The thought of change is usually more overwhelming than the actual act of change; anticipation often far worse than participation.

Traumatic and stressful experiences can range from childhood traumas to a single event like a car accident, the loss of a loved one, or a diagnosis of a chronic disease. Healing the emotional pain of past trauma begins with acknowledgement in a safe space. It is never easy but sharing your experiences, thoughts, and feelings can lead to relief, new perspectives on yourself, your relationships, your goals, and your zest for life. Our goal is to create that safe space for you to understand, process, and heal past trauma and stress so that you can truly live life in the present with self understanding, self acceptance and self care.

What type of Portage mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Portage?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
