When we adapt to an oppressive environment, we are often left feeling scattered, anxious, depressed, numb, disconnected, and misaligned. What’s really tricky is that we’re often not even aware of how we ended up there, we just know that it hurts. Maybe you've been hurting for a while without anyone in your life really aware of how hard it is for you, or maybe something's shifted recently and you're in need of new tools.
I received training and experience in anger management as an abuse intervention counselor at a local mental health agency. I learned there that “anger management” is actually a misnomer. Most often, your anger isn’t the issue, the issue is how you respond to it. In therapy, you will learn concrete tools to notice your internal state and steady yourself when you’re angry. You can even develop a relationship with your anger, one that allows you to learn from it instead of having to fight it.
Navigating chronic pain and illness can require us to shift our identities, relationships, and self-image. Maybe you have been taught to ignore your body and pain, maybe you have been disbelieved by the medical system. Whatever the case, I'll invite you to come to therapy as you are, with no expectations of performing something else. As a Clinical Rehabilitation Counselor, I have specific training in helping people with chronic pain and disability achieve the quality of life they deserve.
Even as the primary beneficiaries of patriarchy, men suffer under it. Much of this suffering comes from a disconnection with the self, taught during childhood and reinforced throughout adolescence and adulthood. Most of my clinical experience has been in working with men on a variety of issues including boundary setting, navigating gender roles, accountability, harm and repair, trauma and recovery, loneliness, and slowing down from ‘doing’ to ‘being.’
