RMC understands that men often express distress differently than do women.
We appreciate that men will take the biggest steps when they are comfortable and understand where you are asking them to go and why.
RMC understands that behavior is often not intended to cause harm to or distress for others, but helps men understand what that continues to happen for them.
RMC believes firmly that men in our culture are in need of mentoring, honing and shaping which is achieved by working with by strong, compassionate men.
RMC uses strategies that make sense to men - straight forward, efficient, reflective, directive, and purposeful.
You've found the right place.
Counseling and Psychotherapy - In life, there are no one size fits all solutions :
The RMC philosophy is to work collaboratively with you to identify your untapped strengths and clarify those key obstacles in the way of you finding greater success. We strive to facilitate your wellness, happiness, and success in the most efficient and effective ways available. This is not to say that life's challenges and curve-balls always have a simple cause or quick cure. We learn more every day about how biological factors, overall health, past experiences, relationships, interpersonal skills, economic realities, and environmental contexts all weigh in on your quality of life. Many of the obstacles you face today can be altered and reduced through contemporary intervention techniques and strategies. You've always known yourself, your challenges and your dreams better than anyone. Let me outline some alternatives and we can then talk about which you believe will maximize your wellness, happiness and success!
Teens & Adults:
Today, everyone is facing challenges. Traditional talking therapies have become more refined, shorter-term, and focused on finding a better way. What are those things that are interfering with your relationships? What role does the way you think about the issues play? Are there behavioral strategies that individuals who are successful use that you haven't tried? How are you expressing your needs to your partner? What lessons that you learned as a young child are you holding on to that don't serve you well? The therapies integrated into treatments that I offer include: cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal, and psycho-dynamic. Let's work together to find the right balance, a treatment tailored to you.
Contemporary society can be a confusing place for guys. Our biology is pulling for old ways of being while at the same time, we want to be strong, supportive partners and fathers. Research shows that men and women often experience the same disorders quite differently. Guys, if it feels like a struggle and you want things to improve. I'm someone who really gets it. Counseling isn't all about sharing your feelings, there are things you can do today to improve yourself, your health, your relationships, your job performance, and the level of success your find. It's a different way of thinking.
My approach to working with married, dating and parenting couples integrates cognitive, behavioral, experiential and family-of-origin approaches. Chose what's right for you and your partner, learn the dance that only the two of you know. If it hasn't worked well in the past, let's restore the relationship to the level of magnetism that brought you together.
Evaluation and Psychological Testing:
When you take your car in for service, it is reassuring that the mechanic finds the problem through a diagnostic test. Otherwise, you are left with the mechanic's best guess. Difficulties in mental wellness can be similar. For example, many mental conditions overlap with or exhibit similarities with other diagnoses. Also, you know how descriptions of conditions are sometimes hard to distinguish from normal life change stresses and typical developmental transitions. If you don't have a good sense of what the source of you or your child's challenges are, let's talk about a tailored set of tests that I can provide to help shed light on what seems to be the root of the difficulties and obstacles as well as your natural tendencies that may be underutilized. The most common forms testing requested are: difficulties with optimal performance, attention, learning and behavioral problems. Conditions like learning disabilities and attention deficits are quite common and can cause so much unnecessary struggle and distress. When you know how best you or your child learns and functions, you can set up situations for success! I conduct testing using a neuropsychological perspective, which means that the goal of testing is to pick measures that map on to specific brain areas (a.k.a., Broadman areas) associated with the cognitive functions. When your brain is wired in a way different from the societal-norm, cognitive symptoms and behavioral difficulties can signal that you work best another way. We can isolate problems with working memory (for example) as opposed to attention or non-verbal processing difficulties and clarify what will be most helpful moving forward. The stresses of adult life can be similar. Are the root difficulties best thought of as depression, anxiety, social isolation, or misalignment of your responsibilities with your goals. Testing can be an aide in this situation as well. Not everyone needs testing, but it is one more powerful tool that is available to you through my practice.
I am baffled by the fact that some clinicians will provide testing to clarify the source of difficulties but stop short of working with folks at work and school contexts to make it all work. I do offer consultation services regarding individuals within my practice. Fees do apply.
I also provide training and seminars to health providers, school staff, parent groups and community organizations on a variety of topics. A brief list includes: male subtype depression and paternal depression, the latest in knowledge, testing, and intervention for behavioral disturbances related to AD/HD, building father-friendly programs and services and business environments as well as ways that community programs can engage fathers. I was also trained as a facilitator of several fatherhood programs such as: Boot Camp for New Dads, the Caring Dad's Program, 24/7 Dad, Inside-Out Dad, and the Nurturing Fathers Program.
Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counseling and treatment, we are able to help you reclaim your motivation, perspective, and joy in your life.
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. We can help you understand and face these symptoms while guiding you through the process of grief and healing.
Relationship counseling can be beneficial for people looking to remove barriers and strengthen their emotional connection in all stages of their relationship. Therapy sessions are a supportive place to discuss issues associated with your symptoms and practice changes that strengthen your relationship.
My education includes degrees from the University of Colorado - Boulder (BA), Baylor University (MS, Psy.D.) and a two year Fellowship at the Yale University Child Study Center.
I provided services in outpatient settings, psychiatric units, medical units, day treatment, schools, and in community-based programs .
