I treat a variety of mental health issues which tend to group into three categories: Anxiety, Life Issues, and Chronic Mental Illness. This list is not exhaustive, so if you don't see your issue but think we might be a good client/therapist fit, please get in touch with me. After a brief call I'll be able to tell you if I can help.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
Generaized anxiety (chronic worry)
Stress and Change
Aspirations (work, school, etc)
CHRONIC MENTAL ILLNESS
Anxiety Disorders (see above)
Support and education for families
Men and Teenage boys
Much of my experience had been with treating men and teenage boys who have any of the above issues. While men die of suicide at higher rates than women, they seek out therapy at much lower rates. In fact, only about one-third of therapy clients are male. Yet, we know that men and boys struggle with anxiety, depression, stress, relationship issues, psychosis, and more as much as women do.
If you are a man looking for help (or a woman looking to help a man in your life) I want you to know that counseling can be a comfortable place for you. What is a session with me like? First of all, it's confidential so you know that what you say won't get back to family, friends, or bosses. Second, I use a pretty active form of therapy which doesn't (unless you want to) focus on the past or depend on you naming the exactly right feeling. Your goals are yours, which means I'm not going to tell you what you have to work on or what you can't work on. In my experience, the vast majority of men get to the end of their first session and tell me how relieved they feel, how comfortable, and how eager they are to return.
