“The hardest part about the gym, is getting there.” And you have done that! I am excited that you have taken the first step .
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Tennessee
I am a staunch advocate of the BDSM/poly/ and alternative lifestyles. Many vanilla people do not understand the complexities that these lifestyles entail. It's also important to have a clinician on your team who not only understands, but can help you navigate your concerns and/or obstacles.
I paid attention to things that occur on the macro level of our society, and realized the unfortunate fact that masculinity is misunderstood. I am suited to address issues and obstacles that uniquely effect men, that may not be easily understood by people on the outside looking in.
I have techniques that help alleviate symptoms of anxiety as described by but not limited to excessive worrying, panic attacks, and racing thoughts.
Your ability to communicate, understand, and relate to people are the underlying measures of all disorders and/or the working well. Therefore, directly addressing the possible deficiency once your interpersonal level is discovered, is the key to success in many cases from what I have witnessed, therefore IPT is the centerpiece of my practice treatment approaches.
Like most clinicians, it's important to understand your background and upbringing to put the pieces together on what may have contributed to you who are in the present. I have a unique way of navigating through your life story so it is not your typical Freudian process.
