Meet Mark

If you weren’t a mental health professional, what would you be doing?

Coaching

A book that everyone should read:

Season of Life by Jeffrey Marx

What do you do for self-care/self-love?

I try to have balance: family, friends, work, exercise, and sleep!

Other than mental health, what is something you’re passionate about?

Sports

Who is your ideal client?

A client who is willing to partner with someone in order to address issues with anxiety, depression, substance abuse, or trauma.

Why do you like being a therapist?

Everyday is different! Every client/family is different! I enjoy seeing someone accomplish a level of functioning, happiness, and peace that they did not envision in a previous time in their life.

What is something you wish people knew about therapy?

It works if you, work it! Like any skill, it takes time and practice to ensure a new behavior or outcome.

Why/how can people benefit from therapy?

As humans, we can all identify issues, patterns, and relationships that sabotage our happiness and quality of life. Identification is only part of the equation. Therapy helps a person to implement a strategy to increase their quality of life.

What is something you’d like clients to know about you (or how you work)?

I like to rely on my years of coaching. I like being a part of a team approach to help clients achieve their desired level of functioning and happiness. As the clinician, I have responsibilities and duties. As the client, they have responsibilities and duties. If we both adhere to those principles, clients can be successful.

What does success in therapy look like to you?

It starts with a clear vision of the presenting problem. If the client and clinician agree on the area of need, we can partner to develop clear goals to address the need. If we have clear goals and objectives, success will be evident.

What are your thoughts about the “stigma” of therapy?

In my experience, the vast majority of people support others in obtaining the help that they need and are more than willing to support others in their journey. However, when it comes to themselves or family members, often times it is not talked about or it is hidden, so the stigma is self-directed in a lot of cases.
