Frequently Asked Questions:

The first session will be an informal interview to gather relevant information about your strengths, struggles and your goals for therapy. I’ll begin to inquire about what you want out of life and what is important to you so that we can plan a strategy for helping you move in a more desired life direction.

4. What types of issues do you specialize in?
I work with people dealing with a spectrum of issues including divorce, relationship issues, work related stress, grief, child rearing/discipline. The therapeutic approach I use gives us the tools to address a wide range of issues. The areas that I specialize in are but not limited to depression, anxiety, anger management, and low self esteem. As we work together identifying what is most important to you ie. your values and goals, this gives us the foundation to move in directions of improved emotional well being which allows you to experience life more fully and congruently.
Is there anything final thoughts on types of issues you work particularly well with?
Yes, Men's issues- Historically gender roles have played a significant place in individual development. One of the significant differences between men and woman are how they process life emotionally. There are a there are a number of reasons for this which include biology, cultural norms and other factors but many men in my experience struggle to express themselves and manage emotions when under stress. I provide a safe place for men to work through emotional struggles and challenges with another who also lives the male experience. I have been involved in men's communities and support groups for the last 15 years and one of my greatest joys in life is watching men grow emotionally and become strong role models for their children and spouses.

I accept Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Cigna, United Health Care, Aetna, and some Employee Assistance Programs.
