Counseling That Works for Women – Sustainable Changes
Emotional ruts aren’t changed by willpower or vowing to remember to not to feel a certain way. Yet these are essentially the tools that conventional therapy employ when focusing on rational or cognitive solutions to emotional issues.

When we use mindfulness in therapy, you learn how to notice subtle shifts in your body, the “seat” of all of your emotions. In a very short amount of time, grey matter is increased in key parts of the brain like the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC), a part of the brain that regulates emotional impulses and decision making. Scientific studies also show that mindfulness reduces grey matter in the amygdala, the “alarm” part of the brain that tells us something is wrong.
In my fifteen years as a therapist, mindfulness has proven to be the most effective ingredient to change the most difficult emotional tangles.From serious addictions to everyday compulsions that are a thorn in your side.
For example, imagine taking the mystery and struggle out of the emotional issues that fuel your eating habits, your motivation at work, anger triggers, your libido or blocks to arousal, and unhealthy cravings. Amazingly, when we approach these parts of us with compassion, acceptance, and leadership instead of pushing them away or punishing ourselves, we experience a life-spring of energy. The burden you carry inside of you is gone and the world seems lighter than it was before.
A “man’s therapist” that’s highly effective helping women
The men I’ve worked with over the years are quick to point out that I’m not a typical therapist that makes them feel uncomfortable with “psychobabble.” However at this time, my clinical practice is especially geared toward women. This decision came about after realizing how difficult it is to find a therapist that is great at helping women develop emotional strength without causing major turmoil in relationships with with men they love.
Here’s a few areas I have a great deal of expertise helping women with:
- Finding your voice in your relationship (standing up for yourself without putting your partner down)
- Panic attacks, stress reduction, and reducing pain from physical symptoms
- Transforming your inner critic and inner perfectionist
- Translating your “gut” feelings into clear communication with a logic-driven world
- Dealing with men you love “from another planet”
- Finding the guy that will respect you
- Becoming a stronger leader (using emotions without letting them run the show)
- Compulsive or addictive behaviors (the “big three:” food, shopping, sex)
- Women who want to have higher libido (removing emotional and psychological blocks to arousal)
- Healing from divorce and safeguarding your new relationship
