My Approach to Helping

You know that your fears around opening up to others, (and probably some stuff from your childhood) get in the way of the relationships you know you are capable of having. You'd like more connection, sometimes it's a bit lonely and you wonder what you are missing. But on the other hand, it feels foolish to open up to others. How can you really trust them? You've learned you can only rely on yourself.

It makes you uptight every time these deep relationship conversations come up. You feel confused when people ask for more connection and emotional intimacy with you.

I am a psychotherapist for men who are self-sufficient, independent problem-solvers. These are the skills that led you to success in many areas of your life. But these skills don't always work to develop deep, connected long-lasting relationships, friendships, and community. I help men who would like to better understand themselves and build their relationship skills.

My style as a therapist is to provide straightforward feedback and concrete skills while being easy to talk to about sensitive and vulnerable issues. My clients report that after their first session with me, they feel relieved. They have been holding in all these concerns for so long and finally have someone to help them figure it out.

Some of the topics covered in psychotherapy with me include:

Assess risk levels in trusting others when opening up and being vulnerable.

Communicate clearly and feel competent when navigating conflicts, problems, and uncomfortable topics.

Establish relationship guidelines and boundaries that are fair and considerate.

Identify your feelings and needs. Learn to put words to express your feelings and needs.

Anticipate and accurately identify your partner’s feelings and needs.

Learn how to cope with your relational triggers (for example: your partner’s complaints, crying, clinging, commitment talk, etc.)

I primarily utilize Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) as a modality to help my clients. It’s action-oriented, meaning we want to get you moving toward doing and practicing the things that will elicit long-lasting positive change in your life.

What I provide for my clients is not a cookie-cutter curriculum or scripts of what to say to get what you want. This is much deeper than that. It requires us to look into your personal and unique psychology so you can navigate all kinds of relational situations without relying on rigid rules or tricks.

It’s learning how to do relationships in a way that is authentic to you.

If this is you, please reach out to schedule a 15-minute phone consultation. I am here to help.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

I often work with men who have never considered nor tried therapy before. I pay special attention to making the initial process as easy as possible, including booking your initial phone consultation with me. You can book directly into my schedule on my website. It's okay if you are not completely sure what your therapy goals are at the onset- that's part of my job to help you figure it out. I work collaboratively with my client, and sometimes I see my role as a relationship coach, giving you some feedback and suggestions as to how to approach difficult conversations and situations in relationships.
