Therapy for Men

There is no greater joy as a therapist than when I sit with someone and watch them have their “Ah-HA!” moment; it’s when our groundwork clicks and that light bulb turns on for a client. It is in that moment that many things can change for a person. That light can finally be the end of toxic internal narratives, that moment can be someone realizing they are worth more than the worst things they have experienced in life. It can be in that moment a person grabs ahold of their passions and steps out of the ambiguity of life cloaked in purpose.

As a therapist I believe that men are born to lead, to love whole-heartedly, to be emotionally intelligent, able to cherish intimate relationships, and able to build a life founded in integrity.

So where do we start?

It first starts with identifying our faulty thought processes and circular thinking patterns. It is identifying those self-sabotaging moments like when we internalize that ANY criticism we experience in life has the weight of EVERY criticism we have experienced in life. It’s that faulty assumption in the relationships we hold, professionally and personally, that it is, “US versus THEM.“

We alienate ourselves through pushing good people away from US.

We run from relationship to relationship looking for that thing that can distract US.

We tie our identity and self-worth to our financial success to mask our pain and justify our habitual patterns of burn out.

But what if it could be different?

What if instead of finding ourselves isolated, we could find ourselves surrounded in a concert of support?

What if through increased emotional intelligence we lead better in the relationships we have? What if through better boundaries we stole back more time and space for ourselves and then prioritized the things we enjoyed?

What if through our work together we could organize your thoughts, identify your goals, and then utilize the relationships and the strengths you already possess to turn a life you once thought was improbable to a life that is completely possible?

That sounds like freedom.

Let’s sit down and explore the possibility of working together! I offer 30-minute free therapy consultations where we can start by organizing your thoughts, identifying your voice and move with purpose.

Addiction and Recovery

“ Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail. ”

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

The truth is addiction does not discriminate. Addiction does not care how amazing or how hurtful your family of origin is. You cannot escape addiction by moving to a different zip code or sitting in a different church pew. Addiction is indifferent to your hopes or dreams.

But your story is not a story about hopelessness; YOUR story is a story about redemption. A story that starts with taking back the power in your life, repairing relationships, and prioritizing your own value. This therapy process is about choosing yourself over previous emotional wounds and trauma. A realization that regardless of your vice, your life is worth more, your influence is worth more, and your life HAS MORE to give.

The cold hard facts are simple. NO ONE wakes up one day and says, “I cannot wait to be addicted to ________.” However, every day someone wakes up and asks themselves, “How am I going to get past my fears, this pain, my lack of self-worth, my feelings of hopelessness?”

The quick answer to that question? We try to escape through distraction. We look for instant gratification, and then we pursue it. At first, it starts with a bump, a sniff, or sip. But before we know it, what began as an attempt at self-medicating ends up in self-destruction.

Let’s make today the day we STOP the hurt and START the journey to healing.

Together, we will build the foundation of recovery by identifying and repurposing your past. We will prioritize and work from your strengths, not your perceived weaknesses. All with the purpose of reclaiming the pieces of our lives we discarded while continuing to value ourselves as someone worth so much more than the worst things we have lived, done, or experienced.

Let’s start the adventure of finding YOU.

Couples Counseling

“ Marriage isn’t something you find, it’s something you make, and you have to keep on making it. ”

– Unknown

I have never heard a pick-up line that focused on, “Hey, I don’t suppose you’d want to come spend the best part of your life with me as we argue, resent, and slowly hate each other until one of us dies, do you?”

How the heck did we get here? Where it feels like as a couple, we have grown farther and farther apart. Before the communication felt free and lite. But now, whenever I do communicate with my significant other, it’s like I am giving a PowerPoint presentation at a board meeting?

Where did the courtship go? The fun? The spontaneity?
The truth is we fight so hard to build something, to nurture this relationship between us, and then our passions, goals and focuses slowly change. Before, you would drive an hour to see your significant other for 15 minutes. The passion and intimacy in your relationship were present, consistent, and prioritized.

Now? You are lucky to high five before you turn the lights out at night.

Here is what I know about couples: You started off infatuated with each other, pursuing each other. Then life stepped into the gap. We check off boxes in the “where we should be in this relationship” list, and we forget that WE are never done growing in a relationship. Through therapy, we will revisit what it is like to date each other, be nurturing to each other, and find positive ways of communicating with each other and cherishing each other.

Let me be honest; this work is going to be challenging. Our therapy will require commitment to continuing to pursue our spouse. Our work together is going to look like stealing time back for yourselves. It’s going to be prioritizing your mutual happiness over social obligations. It’s going to be *SHOCKER* putting your relationship above those kids you share.

This sounds selfish…

But is it? Is it selfish to have a healthy marriage that blesses your kids? A safe home where you model better communication patterns to the little ears in the house? Is it selfish to have a healthy relationship that encourages others around you to be more intentional about prioritizing those they love in their life?

I hope you know you both deserve to be heard, to be seen, and to be LOVED. Let’s sit down and find that new way forward.
