New Dads/Birth Partners
Guess what? About ten percent of men experience depression or anxiety within one year after their child’s birth? Fathers are more vulnerable to mental health issues than often expect. Sleep problems, your partner’s anxiety or stress, low self-esteem , feeling less than, and fertility issues (for those planning) are often the culprit. It is important to address problems and not stuff your feelings.

Alcohol and other drugs
I am a certified drug and alcohol counselor in the state of Pennsylvania. Therefore, I serve people having substance abuse and legal issues (ie. DUI charge). I also provide counseling for folks who are dealing with their loved one’s addiction. If necessary, I can refer my clients to a higher level of care. This referral occurs when individual therapy alone is not enough in treating addiction.
