"It takes courage to express vulnerability."
We are all wired for connection, growth, and authenticity. All men can benefit from having a confidential space where they can lower their walls and be themselves. I provide effective therapy that is mindful of the male perspective and the impact stereotypical expectations of masculinity have on men’s ability to tap into and process emotions, insecurities, sex, sexuality, and trauma.
What are "Men's Issues" anyway?
What makes an issue a men's issue depends on its origin. Men's issues are developed through familial, cultural, and societal expectations that define masculinity and sexuality. These expectations influence an individual's way of behaving, coping, emoting, and relating to the world.
Integrating relational neuroscience and somatic understanding of the mind-body connection, we will work together to understand how past experiences, perceptions of self and others, and stressors in your current life influence your present day concerns. Once better understood, growth and healing can naturally occur.
Tools fostered throughout our sessions include: emotional and body-based regulation skills, self-compassion, effective communication, resiliency building, and somatic affective awareness.
As a trauma-informed psychotherapist & sex therapist, I have particular expertise in men's sexuality, sexual health concerns, childhood trauma, and sexual abuse/trauma.
