Anxiety is best treated with an active approach, seeking to understand and challenge the anxiety, seeking change through accurate perceptions of truth.
My goal in working with couples is to help them to gain the skills needed to resolve conflict in a way that each feels heard and understood, and each feels supported and strengthened by the relationship. Issues I work well with include differences around parenting, communication, and sex and intimacy concerns.
Insomnia and other sleep disorders are generally very treatable, and insomnia can almost always be resolved without the need for medication. I am board certified in Behavioral Sleep Medicine (DBSM) and have helped thousands of people to (re)gain the ability to sleep well through the use of CBT-I or Cognitive Behavioral Treatment for Insomnia, a highly successful and empirically-based treatment for sleep disorders.
Men who are seeking therapy are often struggling with emotional expression, relationship difficulties, career pressures, fatherhood and family dynamics, and navigating life transitions. My approach is focused on helping you develop stronger communication skills, a better understanding of emotions and relationships, and a healthier work-life balance. Together, we'll explore strategies for personal growth, developing a more fulfilling life with stronger relationships.
