My Approach to Helping

Do you find yourself getting caught up in unhealthy behavior patterns that you just can't get out of no matter how hard you try? Do you get weighed down by depression or overcome with anxiety? Do you keep trying to figure out your emotional struggles on your own, but realize that things really aren't getting any better?

I've been in private practice for 25+ years helping people deal with a wide variety of emotional and behavioral issues. Talking about what is going on with someone you trust really can be helpful. I work to create a sensitive, supportive and non-judgmental environment that can help give you relief from painful or embarrassing feelings or problematic behaviors. Giving yourself this opportunity to learn, grow, and heal can allow you to better manage life's challenges and to truly live your life with deeper joy and satisfaction.

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

One specialty I have is helping men overcome sex or porn addiction. This is not an uncommon problem in this day and age, yet it can result in enormous shame and secrecy. It can also cause serious difficulties in self esteem, relationships, work and other responsibilities in life. Addictive sex or porn is usually a symptom of emotional issues that haven't been adequately dealt with. Talking these issues out can take away the addictive hold of these behaviors and give you back control over your life.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

Making the initial contact with a therapist is usually the hardest part. My advice is to schedule a consultation session, talk with a therapist about what is going on, and see how it feels. In my experience this usually provides a good idea about how a therapist works and how s/he thinks. You can then decide if it feels right to continue or not. A good therapist doesn't pressure you to do something, but instead creates a safe space to help you think things out and make up your own mind.
