Therapy for Men

Men need close relationships as much as women do. However, men in our society are rewarded to achieve, often without regard to the personal cost. Particularly if they are going through difficult times, men tend to keep things inside or ignore what's wrong. They are expected to be strong, which can feel isolating when times are difficult. Sometimes they push themselves to the point of feeling anxious, exhausted, or depressed. They may think they need to have the answers before they start understanding their difficulties.

I've worked with many male clients who are often successful in one area in their life but feel unbalanced in other areas. I believe every man has an entrepreneur inside him—men care about creating things that matter to enrich their own and other people's lives. They can learn to use that strength and motivation to overcome personal struggles and achieve their goals.

Psychotherapy is about coming as you are without having things figured out yet. It is a process of actively looking together for what is wrong, what is getting in the way, what's stuck, and using your strengths to make change possible. In therapy we find new tools for you to make permanent changes.
