My Approach to Helping
I specialize in Men's Issues, Sex Therapy, and Couples/Relationship Therapy.
Men often seek my services for help with relationship issues (communication, infidelity, uncertainty), emotional issues (restricted emotions, anger), or behavioral issues (substance use, pornography addiction, controlling/rigid behavior). They benefit from working with a male therapist who specializes in men's issues and can relate in a very personal way to the majority of issues they bring into therapy. Additionally, men generally have a much harder time opening up about their problems than women and often find it easier to discuss certain men's issues with another male.
My work with couples utilizes Emotion Focused Therapy, or EFT, as well as the Gottman Method. Each of these approaches helps to build skills for managing conflict, develop new skills for enhancing friendship, and create a system of shared meaning together. Through our work, partners gain clarity about their interactions, learn how to break out of unhealthy cycles, and feel cared about, understood, and respected.
