THERAPY FOR MEN

REAL CHANGE IS POSSIBLE

There are unique ways in which men and male identified people are getting a raw deal. The negative messaging that men experience on a day to day basis is deeply damaging and most of us don’t even know its happening.

 

The message is:


Be independent, strong and stoic.

Tough it out.

Be powerful and productive.

Be superhuman.


If you fail to meet these (impossible) standards, you are not a “real man”, you won’t find love and you have no value.

 

As men strive to fulfill these expectations, set either at home or by the larger society (often both) they have to disconnect from critical parts of their humanity in order to achieve superhuman status. 

 

Men are forced to cut off certain emotions and experiences in order to survive. 

These intense feelings go underground and become the root of all kinds of misery.   

problems controlling anger

conflicts with others

feelings of insecurity

loss of concentration or focus

failing relationships

feeling alienated and alone

feeling “flat”

addictions

tormenting thought loops

constant worry

Getting yourself to therapy is no small task when you have told your whole life that you should be able to fix every problem by yourself.

 

You don't have to go it alone.  

 

I can help you:

Improve your marriage or partnership

Be a better parent 

Deepen friendships 

Get into a love relationship

Navigate a separation or divorce

Grieve your losses

Figure out what you want

Reduce your anxiety 

Alleviate depression

Heal from a difficult childhood

Sort through work problems

Manage anger

Increase your assertiveness 

Take better care of yourself

Communicate more effectively

Like yourself better 

It takes courage to move toward something new and unknown.

 

Take the first step.
