Dedicated Therapy for Men

“It is a joy to be hidden, but a disaster not to be found.” – D.W. Winnicott

We often find comfort in maintaining a private internal world. However, deep down, we long to be understood.
The need to be seen and truly understood is crucial for healthy adult development and fostering empathic awareness.
The men I work with share a common need—a safe, empathetic, and non-judgmental place
where they can explore and resolve understandings of their experiences.
Whatever challenge you are facing, I am here to support you through it.

WHAT TO EXPECT

What Is A Therapy Session Like?

Sessions are conversational, explorative, and compassionate.
Although I have extensive training, it is our therapeutic relationship that is most important for your journey.
The therapy partnership is where we create a new, unique, and healing experience that fosters security and trust.


Our partnership is a unique relationship.

What happens in a session represents a slice of what happens in your outside life; connecting threads between
the two can greatly inform the process and enrich the therapy.
The more applicable the work is from the therapy room to your daily life, the more accessible and palatable the material becomes.

A goal is to help you understand and change the relational patterns that no longer serve you.
These patterns show up both consciously and unconsciously in how you cope, relate to others, and to yourself.
Together, we will pay careful attention to
the interactions of personal and interpersonal experiences,
of your past and present life,
of your body and mind interactions,
and of your fantasies and realities.


I work with a number of presenting problems. 

People seek therapy for many reasons.
Some want help with specific emotional problems, like depression, anxiety, or stress, or are seeking to come
to terms with a painful or traumatic personal history.
Others may feel stuck in distressing patterns that prevent them from feeling satisfied,
from connecting with others, or from finding meaning in their lives.
Many people simply desire a deeper self-understanding or greater creativity in their personal lives.

Building trust.

The therapeutic process depends on the establishment of a safe, confidential, and collaborative relationship.
Decisions about the duration of treatment, and frequency of sessions, are reached together.

Training and Experience.

Relational Psychotherapists are licensed mental health professionals who have had extensive and intensive postgraduate training.  Training consists of in-depth study and coursework, personal analysis, and experience providing psychodynamic psychotherapy under the supervision of senior analysts.

I studied at Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama,
and the National Institute of Psychotherapies in Manhattan, New York.
