Therapy for Men
ABOUT THERAPY FOR MEN
We have a heart for working with men and appreciate the unique challenges and pressures they face. Today’s culture often has rigid expectations of masculinity which may stifle you men from understanding who you really are and get in the way of reaching your potential. As a result of powerful cultural ideas about what it means to be a male, you may lose yourself as you hide behind a mask that you put on to fit in.
To work with men in therapy, we incorporate both traditional and innovative methods to help you overcome life’s challenges and embrace your potential. Through the process of healing, we will address underlying issues and discover a sense of meaning and peace far greater than before these symptoms began to rule your lives. You will be able to experience joy and strength beyond what you ever imagined.
All the methods that we will work with are Evidence-Based Practices; in other words, they have been proven by research. In working with individuals, we specialize in depression, anxiety, trauma and emotional regulation. We also have extensive experience working with addictions of all kinds.
Many clients also seek help for a stage of life transitions, often during young adulthood when social expectations are at the highest and roles begin to change or during middle-age regarding new demands in career, child-rearing and long-term relationships. We also have experience working with other healthcare professionals, established and aspiring artists and many who work in all areas of the industry. Through different forms of therapy, we aid in helping clients to develop an optimal life experience in whatever stage of life or circumstance in which clients find themselves.
In working with couples and families we emphasize the dynamic influences that each member has on each other and how this creates patterns that may lead members to feel stuck. In work with couples and families, we address breakdowns in communication and barriers that lead to misunderstanding and hurt. In families, each member plays a role in creating the dynamics and contributes to the health or dysfunction of the other members. The solution lies in each member accepting responsibility for their contribution to problems rather than blaming one another. In my work with couples, we recognize the wellbeing of romantic partnerships depends on each person’s capacity to share both the pleasures and sorrows with one another.
