I approach all of my clients from the viewpoint that they inherently have the ability to heal and create the changes they want to see in their lives. With a knowledge that our environment can affect our lives, I work to help clients from various backgrounds realize the control and strength they possess to move toward the life they want to live. This includes an awareness of the difficulties that arise in a society that features challenges for LGBTQ folk, people of color, or any person or family who is struggling. My goal is to meet you at your current place in life and support you in moving positively toward a better future. In a caring and sensitive manner, we let go of judgment and examine the troubling feelings that are part of all our lives so they can cease being limitations. For the past several years I have worked with individuals and families in long term and short term treatment modalities.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I have worked extensively with men and, as a man, I know how challenging even the idea of going to therapy can seem. Sitting down and talking about feelings is not how most of us were raised. We "fix" things and find solutions. I help men who've tried doing that for themselves for years and are at a new point in their lives where those old coping skills and strategies just aren't working as well as they used to.

Whether you're in a relationship or are struggling with always being the good guy who can't seem to connect you could benefit from men's counseling. While the message many of us grew up with was that talking about feelings can lead to shame, vulnerability, and being seen as weak, I work hard to help my clients understand that our goal is for them to be stronger. Stronger in their jobs, in their relationships, and in all aspects of their lives.

My View on the Nature of 'Disorders'

Diagnoses and "disorders" are talked about a lot. They get a lot of air time on TV and the media always wants to come up with a tidy label for everyone. While some people are comforted when their symptoms coincide with a diagnosis, I'm always looking for how a person's issues are manifesting for that individual--not how they fit in with someone else's preconceived sense of what sums up their "disorder." In fact I work with lots of people without any "disorders" (I can't even stop putting it in quotes.) I work with people, mostly men, but not all, who are struggling with something that may fall under the category of anxiety or depression, but is usually so much more than that. I'm not looking to find a label for you. I'm looking to help you reach a place where you have some relief and are closer to the life you want to have.
