Psychotherapy can be conducted using many different approaches. In my work, I adopt a very positive perspective (instead of a stigmatizing illness model) to help my clients recognize and build on their strengths. I focus on the importance of recognizing your inherent worth and face life’s stresses and traumas in as healthy a manner as possible. I have a very active and informal therapeutic style which is intended to be supportive while at the same time concentrating on facilitating life change and coping. Often, therapy helps my clients examine their thought and behavior patterns in an attempt to help them challenge the beliefs that can lead to emotional distress. Said another way, I help my clients shift their thinking and behavior so they can better recognize their strengths and options for positive change.
I have a diverse practice, and work with many men who are seeking to make positive changes in their approach to meaningful relationships.
Some common goals of my clients include:
- Improving self-esteem
- Confidence building
- Improving mood
- Relationship enhancement
- Relaxation and meditation
- Reducing anxiety and stress
- Peak performance enhancement in sports and the arts
- Coping with chronic trauma, stress, and/or chronic illness
